Hello and welcome to our Y4W page.
In our classroom you will find Miss Whittle, Mrs Pickavance, Mrs Carlson and 27 amazing children and wow what a super start to the new school year we have all had. In our first week back, we have been very busy settling into our new classroom and stretching our brains.
We have caught the reading bug already and are really enjoying reading our class novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
Did you know he would have been 100 years old on Tuesday 13th September?
In English, we will be looking in more depth at the life and works of this very popular and successful author and writing all about him.
In Maths, we are focusing on Place Value and recognising relationships between numbers then using this to solve mathematical problems. We have already started this week with partitioning and ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers.
Our Science topic this half term is 'States of Matter' and finding out about solids, liquids and gases. We will also be developing our prediction and investigation skills through experiments to learn more about each one.
We will also be researching Ancient Egypt in our 'Tomb Raider' topic and have looked at mummies, pyramids and tombs already but we are excited to learn more!
If your child has any books on anything we are learning about in class or has done any work at home please encourage them to bring it into school as this will really help with their learning.
Reading plays a huge part in a child's learning and the more they read the better. All children in Y4W now have a reading book and a library book to read and enjoy. Please try to read regularly with your child and sign their reading planner, it really does make a difference.
PE will be on Wednesdays for our class and of course, swimming is due to start in February next year.
Finally, congratulations to Ruby, who was our first winner of the achievement award this year. Well done!
