Autumn Term 1 2020
Welcome to the Year 4 page. It’s great to be back!
The school day starts and ends at the usual times for Year 4 this term. Due to other classes having staggered start and finish times though, it is important that you drop your child at the Unit 2 ramp as close to 8.45 a.m. as possible and collect them from the lower playground gate at 3.15 p.m.
Of course most Year 4 children haven’t been in school since March so this half term our focus will be very much on ensuring everyone makes a smooth transition back to school life. While the children are getting used to their surroundings again and re-establishing old routines we’ll identify any gaps in their learning and I’m confident that, before we know it, it will be as if ‘Lockdown’ never happened!
Our topic this term is ‘I Am Warrior’ and I know the children will absolutely love learning about life in Celtic and Roman Britain.
Since all our PE lessons will be taught outside this term the children will need to be ready to spring into action whenever the weather permits so it’s essential that they have their PE kit with them in school everyday.
As ever, reading will be a very important part of our learning at Southill so please encourage your child to read at home every day and to keep their reading record books up to date. Reading books and reading record books will also be needed in school so that we can monitor progress so please don’t forget to send them in every day. Thank you.
For the timebeing, any queries, comments, concerns or photos can be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. but as soon as it is possible to welcome parents back into school as in the past we will do so.
