Hola! This year Year Four will be taught by:
Miss Furness and Miss Owen
In the Spring term, we will be learning all about...
We will be playing detectives in order to solve the famous mystery of The Sutton Hoo and trying to identify who the missing body from the burial ship might have been. We will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxon way of life and what they brought to England with them and comparing it to England today.
This half term we will be focusing on 'Teeth and Eating.' During this topic we will be identifying and naming the different types of teeth that humans and animals have. We will be looking at the digestive system and the journey of food through our bodies and then will move on to looking at food chains.
In the Spring Term, PE sessions are on a Tuesday afternoon. Children should keep their PE kit at school at all times as this can change. We will be swimming on a Friday afternoon until Easter, please make sure your child has their swimming kit in school every Friday morning.
Children are given a homework log every Friday. They must practise their class and individual spellings, times tables and read either their reading book or library book every night at home and get an adult to tick and sign the log. The logs are checked by myself or Miss Owen every morning during registration and if they aren't signed the children will stay in at dinner time to practice.
Class spellings will be given out every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. These words are taken from the English Curriculum list of Year 3/4 words and all children are expected to be able to spell and use these words independently in their writing by the end of Year 4. Individual spellings are tested and given out every Friday by Miss Owen and must also be practised daily in order for the children to achieve their personal target and make progress.
