It is our pleasure in introducing another member of our year 4 team. Mrs Benner will now be working with Year 4 every morning from now on.
This half term our topic is called ‘Passport to Europe’ . In English, we shall be studying persuasive language by creating our very own travel brochure for a country in Europe. In Maths, we shall be looking at Fractions and Decimals and continuing our development of calculation skills.
Later on, we shall be planning, designing and making our very own passport holders in our Design and Technology lessons.
Whilst in PE we are very fortunate to have Emma Dennis, a football coach, working with us every Wednesday to teach football. As well as this, Hydra will start swimming on Monday afternoons whilst Leo will follow in May.
I’m really excited to send our ‘Buzzy Bee’ home on a Friday for children to write all about their weekend together! Make sure you watch out for that, you might be the lucky person chosen out of the lollipop sticks!
Homework is given on Friday and is due back on a Wednesday. However, spellings are given on a Monday and need to be revised over the week for the following Monday. Furthermore, we have a mental Maths session on a Friday. This is also an opportunity for children to be tested on their Times tables. Please make sure you read, practise your spellings and Times tables daily.
I’m really excited for this new half term!
Mrs Hassan, Mrs Linley & Mrs Benner.
