Year 4RT

Welcome to Year 4 RT


Our class teacher is Mr Trayling. We are very lucky to also have Mrs Parcell, helping us in our class. We are a determined group of learners who don't understand the meaning of giving up and will always try our best at everything we apply ourselves to.


Our Combined Studies unit this term is The Rainforest.


As Geographers we will be looking at the layers of the rainforest and the animals that live within each. We will be exploring different climatic regions and locating different countries within each. We will be producing our own colour coded maps to represent these. We will be studying the effects of deforestation and the threats to the environment. We will be holding a debate to consider both sides of the argument.
As technologists we will be creating our own fair-trade product and will be designing the packaging to hold our product.
As Artists we will be exploring the techniques used to mix colours to create our own collage of the rainforest. We will be looking at the work of Rousseau and creating some of our own work inspired by him. 

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. We have indoor PE on a Tuesday and outdoor PE on a Wednesday but we need to have our PE kits in school from Monday through to Friday.

Our maths and English homework is set on a Wednesday and must be handed in the following Monday. We will have a spelling test on a Wednesday and a Times Tables test on a Thursday. Our Big Talk homework will be set on a Monday in preparation for our Big Writing on a Friday.


If you have any concerns, questions or queries; do not hesitate to come and speak to me.


Don't forget to regularly check our class page as there will be some wonderful photographs of the learning that takes place and examples of children's work.
