Welcome to Year 4 Maple and Rowan classes page. We are taught by Mr Stephen Andrews and Miss Alex Barr!
This term we are looking at LOTS of exciting things!
Our topic is now 'France' - we will be continuing our learning of the language, and also learning about the culture and food.
We now have lots of ICT provision in school and so we will be focusing upon our E-safety and programming units in more detail.
Maths and English are as important as ever!
This term, we have started our learning on fractions and the children seem to have a good grasp of this concept!
English will be a mixed but rich curriculum this term as we will be focusing upon the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and also looking at our World Book Day focus author Anthony Browne (http://www.anthonybrownebooks.com/books/) and also celebrating Shakespeare week in the third week of term. Busy busy busy!
PE is a huge part of our curriculum with the children swimming and also engaging with the PE scheme that we run, which comprises of both a sport element and a healthy eating and lifestyle element.
Music will take the form of brass lessons this year and the children are making good progress under Mr. Lloyd's expert tuition!
We still have lots to do and lots of exciting learning opportunities ahead. All of the teachers are on board, and we're ready to help. Children are loving Class Dojo and their learning so far - let's keep it up year 4!
Parents evening and class trips
Parent's evening will take place on the Monday and Wednesday throughout the week beginning 5th March 2018.
Time slips have been sent home but please see your child's teacher to book or change times if needed.
We have our class trip to Portland Basin on Tuesday 6th March. Please ensure that permission and payment is made in good time.
Children have the option in year 4 to walk home if their parents allow them to.
Please let Mr Andrews and Miss Barr know if you would like your child(ren) to walk home on their own at the end of the day.
You are still more than welcome to collect your child should you choose to.
