Summer Term 2 (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 a cracking book called ‘Charlotte’s Web’ written by E.B. White. A classic book filled with great characters.
Topic- Traders and Raiders- Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores. Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lives of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land. Make a Saxon sword or a Viking brooch and decorate it with intricate patterns. Choose to be a Saxon or Viking and trade your crafty goods, but let’s keep it cool. We don’t want a fight breaking out. Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?
Physical Education- All PE will be taught outside and will involve a wide range of sports. We aim to do PE on a Wednesday and sometimes on a Friday, however as we are renowned for having unpredictable weather, please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every day. We also have our ‘Sports Afternoon’ to look forward to!
