Welcome to Year 4!
We have a lovely team in Year 4. In both 4Spruce and 4Tanoak this year, Mrs Long is with us for part of each day, we have Mr Allen, Mrs Piper and Mrs Buckingham teaching the children PE, Music and French respectively. The children will be learning swimming with Mrs Hands from term 4.
Our topics this year are: ‘We three kings’, this is the study of the Anglo Saxons and a little about the Vikings; ‘The Movies’ where we will be learning about locations and map work and ‘Mrs Europa’ where we learn about Ancient Greece.
We will have visitors and Visits over the course of the year, to extend children’s’ learning. Please keep an eye out for letters which will come out prior to each event.
Each term we will focus on a quality text in English, looking at the author and their language choices and using these texts as a springboard to inspire our learning journeys.
There will be class assemblies throughout the year, the dates will be on the learning letters and the newsletter.
We would love to encourage parents to help in school, listening to readers.
Home learning will be sent out each week, children will be encouraged to complete this. There will also be optional learning set on MyMaths, reading and times tables are ongoing. Please record any reading in your child’s reading journal, which should come into school daily.
