Year 4 is a lovely place to be.

Both Mrs. Woodhouse and I enjoy reading, socialising with our friends and family, exploring the world, walking our dogs and having fun. Whilst we are looking forward to a laugh with our class, we also have high expectations of you and want you to do your very best at all times. This year we will be ably assissted by Mrs. King. Vanessa Moores, an associate (trainee) teacher, will be working alongside us in Year 4 during Term 1 and Term 3.

Our next exciting topic is "The Tudors." Who were they, when and where did they live and why is this such an important part of history? See what you can find out over the last few weeks of the holiday and decide what questions you would like to ask and activities you would like to do. As part of this topic we will visit Speke Hall, a Tudor house.

In English we will be completing the work on Sea of Dreams before embarking on the myth The Water Horse''  as a stimulus for all our writing and grammar work.This is a beautiful story using wonderful vocabulary and illustrations leaving you asking questions. You will love the story.

The first 3-4 weeks will be spent on Shape. We feel it is very important for you all to really understand each topic before moving on and this helps you to achieve deeper learning (mastery) in this area. 

Our science topics is habitats.

Brass lessons will continue with Mr Birch in preparation for our summer visit to The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, to play with The Halle Orchestra. Once you are given your instruments it is very important to keep up with your practice so that you can really make the most of this wonderful opportunity to play with an internationally renowned orchestra!

Please go onto the Y4 blog to read what will be happening each week. This will be uploaded at the end of each week for the beginning of the following week. It is very important to read this and let your parents read it too as there may be changes to dates, information and special events etc that will be listed here.

Check out Y4 discussion topics! Remember that team points are always awarded to children who leave a comment.

The new Takeaway homework is also in a file on the right hand side for this half term so don't leave your takeaway homework to the last minute! We will be expecting to see your evidence of a work in progress at the beginning of May. You have selected the items you would like to do this time so we are expecting great results.

PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure your labelled kit is in school on these days, including a tracksuit for the cooler weather and a hat and water for the warmer weather.

Thank you

Mrs. Woodhouse and Mrs. Waddington
