Welcome back Year 4! We hope you had a lovely Easter break and that you are ready to return to learn lots of new and exciting things! We are so proud of the way you returned to school in March and your positive attitudes and commitment to learning when we got back in the classroom. We know that you will achieve great things this term and can’t wait to see what you are capable of!
We are very lucky to still have Miss McGowan working with us for the rest of the school year, teaching you lots of interesting things and helping you to get ready for Year 5!
During our Summer 1 half term we are going to continue our focus on reading- you will still be reading independently, in groups, staff reading to you and working as a whole class to read and build our comprehension skills. We have keep reading our class reader of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and find out what happens to him along the way. We will still be learning about our topic of The Vikings and also looking at The Anglo Saxons. We will be learning all about their lifestyles; what they ate, what they did in their free time, where they lived and lots of other interesting facts! We will be returning to multiplication and division this half term and learning new methods to use with these operations as well as reminding ourselves of all the basic facts and methods in maths. In English we will still be developing our handwriting, punctuation and sentence structures as well as practising extended pieces of writing.
Our PE day will be Tuesday going forward and we will be working with Mr Barnes during this half term so don’t forget to come in your PE kits on Tuesdays!
