Welcome to Year 4!
We have had a great first week back and the children have settled into their new class really well. Our big question this half term is ‘Which plants and animals thrive in our locality?’
We will be learning about the plants and animals in our locality, as well as plants and animals in other countries and in different parts of the world. Through this learning challenge question we will be making lots of links to science, geography, art and literacy.
This term P.E will be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Wednesday morning. Our P.E teacher will be leading the sessions on Wednesday mornings. Please can children make sure they have their full P.E kits in school on these days.
The children will also receive a weekly guitar lesson this year. Mr Bergin will come to school every Tuesday for the session. The children are really excited to start their guitar lessons this year. I’m sure they will tell you all about it after the sessions.
Children are expected to take their book bags home and bring the back to school the next morning on a daily basis. Children need to make sure they read at home on a regular basis. I also expect children to practise their spellings as they will be tested on these in school and also make sure they are regularly practising their timetables. It is important that children practise their timetables as this year is the first year they will be nationally tested at the end of the year.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning, please see me or any member of the Year Four team before or after school. We are always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
