Welcome to 4H!
Welcome back everyone, I hope you enjoyed the six week break and had a fantastic summer!
In Year 4 we will be exploring recycling in our linked learning topic, Eco Warriors. We will explore this across the curriculum, including making our own sculptures from recycled materials inspired by the work of Barbara Franc.
In Literacy we will also be exploring Eco Warriors, we will do this by writing narratives based on Michael Recycle and The Tin Forest, as well as 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.
Every Tuesday we will be having Ukele lessons (instruments will be provided) and, this term, we will be having Football on a Friday afternoon.
Please make sure your child has a full PE Kit in school on Wednesdays and Friday. They will need trainers in order to take part in the football sessions.
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 - this is important and will be really beneficial towards their learning.
Homework books are due in each Monday and will be returned to the children on Tuesday.
There will be a meet and greet session early in the term with the Year 4 teachers. This will give us an opportunity to run through the year ahead and to go through any queries. We look forward to seeing you then!
