Welcome to Year 4!
A warm welcome to the parents and carers of Year 4 2018-2019
We can’t wait to get to know all the children coming to year 4; we have such an exciting curriculum planned to capture the children’s imagination from as soon as we start the year.
The teachers this year are: Mrs Burch and Miss Clements in 4X and Mrs Agis or Mr Tomlinson in 4A. This year we will have Miss Fisher supporting both classes and 4X will have Mr. Cowell and Miss. Whaley popping in to support some of the children throughout the week.
In year 4 we cover three topics, one each half term. These topics are:
Into the Unknown
Near, Far and FArTHER
All these topics cover the national curriculum through an array of projects as well as through layered learning, where several subjects overlap to embed knowledge through a variety of learning activities.
Please follow our school twitter account for most recent activities.
Our Book Spine
Shackleton’s Journey The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,
FArTHER The Iron Man,
Gulivers Travels & Rotten Romans
We love to start our topic work with a hook. This could be character dress up days for teachers, trips or even a walk into the local area. This year we have booked our trip to the Chill factor and will also be taking the children to a local synagogue to further our knowledge on the Jewish faith. We also hope to arrange a trip to Chester in the summer term, depending on how much money we are able raise.
