Welcome to Year 4
This term, the class will be doing PE each Tuesday. Please provide your child with an appropriate kit including the colour shirt of their house.
Homework is set each Friday and is to be handed in the following Wednesday. Spellings will be given out each Friday and tested the following Friday. Please could you encourage your children to learn their times tables and to read as regularly as possible.
This year, all the children in year 4 will have the brilliant opportunity to learn the cornet as part of their weekly music lessons. In addition, they will have weekly drama lessons, during which they will learn to perform a variety of poems which they will take an accredited exam in later in the Summer term.
This first half term, year 4 are learning about the First World War, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of when it ended. We will visit the Hall of Memory in Birmingham to better appreciate the massive sacrifices by men and women during the Great War.
Later in the year, we will visit Cadbury World for our topic on chocolate and Mayan civilisation.
As part of our RE topic, we will all visit a Hindu Temple on Wednesday 3rd October, to deepen our understanding of the Hindu faith.
