Welcome back to Term Five - a very different kind of term for all of us. Although we won't be seeing each other just yet, we hope that you are all keeping safe and well, while also enjoying the extra family time and getting up to lots of different activities.
We will be setting work weekly in the Virtual Learning folder (at the top of this page) for English and maths, and there are other learning activities too to keep you busy. Now, please be assured that we do not expect parents to suddenly become teachers overnight, and are aware that lots of you are working from home also, so please do not worry if things don't go quite to plan, or if you don't complete some of the tasks. If you have your own ideas of what you would like your child to do, then go for it! We are merely trying to provide support for those who wish to use it, and we promise, we will not be offended if you'd rather bake cakes, play in the garden or play a board game instead.
We hope that we will get to see you all again soon, and in the meantime, please stay home, stay safe and stay smiling!
The year 4 team :)
For the past two terms, both classes have been studying the Ancient Greeks. We have been looking at the geography of the country, the deities they worshipped and even some of the Olympic sports we don't see these days!
If you want to see a more detailed breakdown of what we studied, please refer to the Knowledge Organiser page!
Uniform - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months and please also encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.
Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please communicate with the school office.
Year 4 have had a very exciting first term. We have had lots of fun taking part in the Federations new Forest School, getting our hands messy in experiments based around the digestive system. It was sad to see Miss Philo off on her travels but we are very excited to hear from her as she sets off around the world. Equally, we have got to know Mr Brabner and look forward to working together - especially in sharing his expertise in science.
If you need to contact Mr Brabner via email, you can do so using this block.
