Hello and welcome to Year 4 from Mr Whaite, Mrs Mantel and Mrs Etchells!
We are looking forward to a fantastic new year together and starting our new topic for this term which is called “The Blue Abyss”.
We will be learning all about the Earth’s oceans and all the creatures that live beneath. Very exciting!
P.E. is on Wednesdays and Fridays in this half term (1A) so please ensure P.E. kits are brought in for those days and that long hair is tied back.
In Literacy, we are focusing on autobiographies and biographies (Jacques Cousteau), persuasive writing about all the plastic being dumped into our oceans and an under-water adventure story!
Spellings are given every Friday to learn for a spelling test the following Friday and should be practiced as often as possible at home, along with multiplications (up to 12 times tables). Discussing any stories or books that have been read is also strongly encouraged!
Year 4 are fortunate enough to learn how to play cornets this year and will play, learn and perform throughout the year. Children will be loaned their very own cornet to practice with at home! Cornets must be brought into school every Tuesday for their music lessons.
Thank you for your continued support!
Mr Whaite & Mrs Mantel
