Term 1


Welcome to 4DW!


Welcome back everyone. We hope you all had wonderful summer holidays.


We have an exciting first term in Year 4 ahead of us. Our linked learning topic this term is Eco Warriors and we will be exploring recycling and environmental issues. This will include making our own sculptures from recycled materials inspired by the work of Barbara Franc.


In Literacy we continue the Eco Warriors theme, writing narratives based on Michael Recycle and The Tin Forest and non-fiction writing focussing on water. In our Science and Geography work we will be looking at states of matter, and the water cycle. In ICT we will be creating PowerPoint presentations, whilst in RE we will be learning about key beliefs of Islam.


Ukele lessons begin every Tuesday (instruments will be provided) and this term we have Football on a Friday afternoon.


Please make sure your child has a full PE Kit in school (days to be confirmed). Friday they will need trainers in order to take part in the football session.


Homework will be sent home in the form of a homework book containing a different grid each term. This has activities from across the curriculum for children to complete in whichever order they choose. In addition children need to be learning their spellings (given out and tested on a weekly basis), and their times tables.


Homework books are due in each Monday and will be returned to the children on Tuesday.


The children will be receiving home reading journals for them to record their reading at home each week. The target is to read 5 times each week. We will record the reads and give out small prizes for those children regularly hitting this target.


There will be a meet and greet session early in the term with the Year 4 teachers to run through the year ahead and to go through any queries. We look forward to seeing you then.
