Welcome to Kingfishers and Woodpeckers
Welcome back! We hope that you all had a restful summer holiday and made the most of being able to get out and about in the good weather!
The Year 4 team are looking forward to an exciting term. We will begin the term with Diversity Week. During Diversity Week, we will be learning about the Paralympics with a focus on Trischa Zorn – an American Paralympic Swimmer who was born blind.
After Diversity Week, we then look forward to starting our topic on “Stone Age to Iron Age.” We will be learning about how people in the Stone Age and Iron Age lived, their inventions and we will also be creating our own cave art. There will be a Stone Age dress up day for the children on Tuesday 27th September.
In Science we will be looking at Electricity. The children will have the opportunity to make their own circuits and investigate what happens when a circuit is not complete.
It is vital that all children are supported in completing their reading, times tables and spellings daily at home, in addition to their weekly Maths and Reading homework.
We are looking forward to working closely with parents this year. We will have some Yr4 virtual class assemblies throughout the year alongside book looks so you can see the children’s learning throughout the year. Please try to keep up to date with Marvellous Me messages and Seesaw announcements.
If you have any concerns or worries about anything at all, please use the class emails so that we can work together.
We are looking forward to a great first term in Year 4 and an exciting and fun filled Autumn term!
Thank you for your continued support.
