Welcome to Year 4!
We have had a fantastic start to this year and all the children have settled in really well. Our first big question this year is, ‘Which plants and animals thrive in our locality?’ We will be having lots of fun and learning about different plants and animals and their habitats. Through this learning challenge, we will be doing lots of Science, Geography and Art. Our linked class text is called The Promise by Nicola Davies. Ask your child what the book is about and I’m sure they will be very excited to share what they know!
This year, P.E will be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Wednesday morning. Our new P.E teacher (Mr B) will be leading the sessions on Wednesday morning. He will also be running a Y3/4 multi sports club on a Wednesday and I know lots of our children have already signed up!
The children will also receive a weekly guitar lesson this year. Mr Bergin will come to school every Tuesday for the session.
Homework will be given on a Friday and then will need to be handed in by the following Thursday. This half term, the homework is to create a fact file on a animal of the children’s choice. Each week I will set the children an area of research and over the weeks they will create their project. I also expect the children to read at home, practise their weekly spellings and make sure they are learning their times tables as often as possible.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning please see me before or after school. I am always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
