10th February 2023

Hi everyone, 


My name is Miss Dunbar and this is my third-year teaching at St. Clements. I am currently teaching Year 4 and already have some highlights from this year! I enjoyed the children’s enthusiasm when reading our class reader ‘Zombierella’ and their engagement in our history lessons when learning about the Windrush Generation. Year 4 were also fantastic litter pickers in our science lesson when learning about human impact on the environment.  


On Tuesday, it was Online Safety day, with celebrations and learning based around the theme ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’. Here is a link with useful information for keeping safe online from Childline:


This week, we had a maths day focusing on capacity. In Year 4 we looked at the definition of capacity and volume to help us with our learning. Capacity is the amount that a container can hold and volume is the amount of space filled by something. A key fact the children learned is that there are 1,000ml in 1 litre. We used this knowledge to measure the volume of liquids, to make comparisons and to complete additions and subtractions. I am really proud of how focused and hard working the children were! 


Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to wrap up warm.
