Autumn Term 1 (2022)
Welcome to the Year Four website page

 

Say hello to the Year 4 webpage! Here you will find regular updates and information about what the children are getting up to at school !  Please read the information below to ensure you know what to expect this half term…

 

The door for Year 4 will be opened at 8:45am and will close at 8.55am for registration. Please ensure children arrive on time to ensure that they can settle into the school day successfully. There will be a staff member each day to welcome them into school. Year 4 collection time is 3.15pm from the Key Stage Two gates (lower playground). A member of the staff will walk the children down to the gate to ensure they are collected safely at the end of the day.

 

Reading- Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress. A mixture of them reading to an adult as well as reading independently is encouraged in order for children to develop their fluidity and comprehension. During this half term, we shall be reading an absolute classic…’The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S. Lewis.  A timeless book which I am sure the children will fall in love with.

 

Topic- Invasion- This project teaches children about life in Britain after the Roman withdrawal. Children will learn about Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions up to the Norman conquest. We will focus mainly on the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land. We will also be venturing on a Viking adventure as we disembark on a school trip to New Field Barn Centre. We must all be ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages.

 

Physical Education- All PE will be taught predominantly outside and will involve a wide range of sports. We aim to do PE on a Thursday, however as we are renowned for having unpredictable weather, please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every day.
