Welcome to the Year 4 page.
I am Miss Richardson, the class teacher, and this year we will be working alongside Mrs. Robinson. Keep an eye out on this page for regular updates and see what we are up to.
Our topic this half term is the Ancient Egyptians. We will be looking at how the Ancient Egyptians lived in comparison to our own lives.
Our science topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to complete investigations.
During English this term, our focus will continue to be on developing our writing. We will be doing work based around a book called ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar. As well as this, we will be continuing to work on our fantastic grammar and sentence structure.
During maths this term, we will be looking at geometry. This includes shape, angles, symmetry and coordinates. We will also be looking at interpreting and presenting data through different graphical methods.
We will also be doing lots of exciting and creative work in: art (Egyptian art), Science, PE, Spanish and music. We are currently practising for our part in the Summer Fair. We will be doing a short performance of the Lion King.
White Post Farm
This half-term, we have been on a trip to White Post Farm. The children and I had a fantastic day, feeding and holding the animals and learning about different animals’ characteristics and their habitats.
Sports day is on Tuesday 26th June. KS2 sports day is in the afternoon.
Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school at all times. Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school and possibly sun cream for hot days.
Children are encouraged to take their book bags and reading book home and are expected to read at home each evening, as this is extremely important in their education.
Please can you ensure that your child’s school uniform, coat and PE clothes are labelled with their name. It is very easy for items to be lost or taken by mistake. This makes it easier for us to return the item of clothing to you instead of placing it in lost property.
Thank you for your support – Miss Richardson
