Thank you for taking the time to look at our class page. We are really looking forward to the year ahead.

The teachers in Year 4 are: Miss Eatwell, Miss Squires, Mrs Ward and Mrs Cochrane.

We are also very lucky to have Mrs Hannan, Miss Jubb, Miss Sakharkar, Ms Khot and Mrs Shaikh working in Year 4. They are here help us if we find something tricky or challenge us if we are finding it easy.

Our Curriculum

 

Literacy

 

In Literacy this half term we shall be reading a fairy-tale-with-a-twist called 'The Tinderbox', written by Hans Christian Andersen. We will be doing lots of creative writing and drama activities based on the story.

        

 

 Science

Our main topic this half term will be a science based topic on electricity. We shall be making electrical circuits and discovering what materials allow electricity to pass through them. Please talk to your child about the electrical appliances you have at home and how to use them safely.

Swimming

        

We were very proud of the children and their progress in swimming. Please continue to make sure that your child has the correct clothing and that your child’s clothes have been clearly labelled with their name so they do not become mixed up with others. We must also request that no jewellery (including small stud earrings) is worn on Mondays. Finally, it is a good idea for the first group to bring a healthy snack for eating afterwards as the children can feel very hungry after swimming.
