HATO Challenge: What am I proud of? From Caiden


Martin Luther King was assassinated because of his fight against hatred & against prejudice & discrimination in society. This inequality persists still. The data is clear. The experience of those around us speak to this. Prejudice remain. Hatred remains.


RFK’s speech is in full here: & the text is here


Earlier that year in April, Robert Kennedy gave a rousing & poignant speech, but one that attempts to inspire action. In it he argues that: “This is a time of shame and sorrow....” He was speaking about the murder of the black civil rights campaigner Dr Martin Luther King


Bobby Kennedy (RFK) was assassinated in June 1968. He was murdered after becoming the favourite for candidate for President of the USA.


Good morning everyone. Today we set aside most of Covid-19 planning to reflect on a speech by Bobby Kennedy. A series of tweets over the weekend will I hope inspire and give pause for reflection & action. PSHE & citizenship are maligned as subjects but schools teach them well.

Spring update

This half-term Year 4 have been very busy. In English we have been exploring a range of different texts and have used this as inspiration to create, our own stories, non-chronological reports and a letter. Vocabulary and reading have been a key focus this term and as a class we have really enjoyed reading and listening to our class novel Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

In Maths we have been netuning our use of mental and written methods, particularly with multiplication. Learning our times tables has been a very fun and interactive journey with lots of music as motivation.

In PSHE we have been exploring the topics of Kindness and what its means to be healthy. Science this term has been all about the 3 states of matter and conducting experiments to explore their properties. Using technology has been a key focus this term and in addition to using laptops and Ipads for research we have used them to create our own newspaper report and publish pieces of work. In our foundation subjects we have been learning about Italy and many of its landmarks and geographical features, Christianity and what it means to belong to the Christian faith, as well as Rome and the Roman civilisation.

Spring 2

We have had a very busy half term of learning. In English we have had a clear focus on developing our presentation, proof reading and editing skills. As a class we see the importance of redrafting as a means to become better writers. Reading goes hand in hand with writing and as such we have all been working on our reading for pleasure. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to you read over the phone, it reminded me of how much progress you have made since September and it makes me incredibly proud to be your teacher!

In PSHE our key focus has been learning about the rights of children. As a class we have developed our empathy towards others and learnt what it truly means to be a kind person.

In Computing we have been developing our ICT skills and have become very pro cient at logging in and using a computer independently. We have enjoyed using technology as a means to share ideas, this was particularly enjoyable when we created a campaign to develop a school playground.

As the school closes for Easter I would like you all to continue to engage with your learning packs and regularly use Purple Mash. Stay safe.
