Welcome to our Class 4 Page!
Mrs Edmondson is your child’s class teacher this year.
The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the Key Stage One yard. If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself then you must inform the office staff or the classroom teacher.
Our learning so far
So far, Year 4 have focused on the following themes:
- A Wonderful Words- From Source to Sea and Rainforests
- Rule Britannia!- Saxons, Vikings and Normans.
Class 4 have been extremely enthusiastic about what we have covered so far but our ‘Rule Britannia!’ topic has been the clear favourite! The children loved learning about the Battle of Hastings and re-enacting this important event with the help of Scotty! They enjoyed analysing Saxon artefacts found at Sutton Hoo to find clues about the people that had been buried there. The children also enjoyed creating wonderful presentations about William the Conqueror using the app ‘Key Note’ and using their sewing skills to recreate parts of the Bayeux Tapestry.
We have enjoyed reading a range of texts linked to our topics including The Great Kapok Tree, Wind in the Willows, Stormin’ Normans and A Viking Boy.
Our Summer Term topic is ‘Mighty Metals’. We are going to explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. As well as this, we will be designing and making a decorative light up box using what we learn about electrical circuits. After our visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we will explore the work of Henry Moore and use this to inspire our own sculptures.
We will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
PE – Our PE day is every Monday. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!
Homework – homework is handed out every Friday and is due in the following Tuesday. Please ensure that you do your homework at home as it ensures that you get extra practice. It’s so important!
