Year 4 have ended the Spring term learning about the Easter story through Jesus Christ Superstar. Children have really started to think and express what it would have been like for Jesus and his followers. The conversation and inference the children took from this was far above their years.
We have an exciting Summer term planned including a trip to Llandudno to visit the Copper Mines and a three day residential in Ormside, Cumbria. The children will be starting Brass lessons when they return to school in the summer, we are looking forward to hearing all of their wonderful musical talents.
We will be looking at Britain in particular Liverpool and Huyton through World War II, the sacrifices that were made and the qualities that were developed. If you have any family stories that you are happy for the children to share please send these into school, we like to make it feel real for the children.
In PSHE we will be looking at different careers and I plan to create a small careers afternoon. If you would like to come along and represent your chosen job and allow the children to question you about it please let me know as soon as possible, or do you know somebody who will like to come along? The idea is to introduce the children to a range of industries in order to enhance their understanding of the impact of education,
The year 4 children have developed a love of vocabulary and we will be continuing to develop this next year through every subject.
As the children know I will have lots of little surprises and activities along the way. Looking forward to another amazing term with a great group of children.
PE is now on a WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY, so please make sure you remember your kits!
Times table Rock Stars – I have seen the children’s improvement on TTRS. We complete 2 speed tests a day in class and the children are enjoying our new team challenge. Keep it up boys and girls as your times table skills are fantastic.
Spelling Shed – Don’t forget to go on spelling shed as much as you can, 5 minutes a day is great.
Reading is so important to your child’s development, so please make sure reading is done at least 10 MINUTES every day and recorded in their reading record.
