We are a very hard working class and are taught by Mr Allen, Mrs Golledge and Mr Pearse. We are also lucky to have help with our learning from Miss Salmon. We are located up the stairs and are very enthuasiastic about our final term in Year 4.
We have a very exciting term ahead, with visits to the British Museum, Sky Studios, Blundell Copse and camping at Rushall Farm.
In English, we will be extending our knowledge of Non Chronological Reports and Persuasive writing using wildlife and endangered species as our inspiration.
We will be having weekly spellings tests on Wednesdays to help us with our English writing and weekly English homework, which will go out on a Tuesday for the following Monday. We will also be having Talk Homework. This will be given out on a Monday and will need to be discussed at home in preparation for our writing lesson on Friday.
In maths, we will have weekly mental arithmetic sessions and we will carry on learning the four operations. We will be having weekly homework on Maths Made Easy, which will set on Tuesday for the following Monday. In addition, there will be timetables or mental maths practise given out on Monday in preparation for Friday.
During our combined studies sessions (history, geography, art, DT, ICT and music) we will be studying ‘Wild about Wildlife’. We will be looking at the habitats, diets and threats to a range of animals and understanding the human impact on these creatures.
Mr Pearse will take Swimming on a Thursday. As there are lots of sporting opportunities in Year 4, we ask that PE kits are left in school from Monday to Friday.
Even though children in Year 4 are increasingly independent readers, it is still important that they read regularly to an adult at home so that they can discuss their thoughts and feelings about what they have read.
Keep looking at this page as we are sure to have some exciting pictures to show you soon.
