Mountain Explorers Day
On Monday, Year 4 had a fantastic day being mountain explorers. They wrote a job application to join an expedition team, learnt how to use a compass and designed and built their own shelters. It was a fantastic start to the summer term!
Summer Term 2023
Welcome to the summer term! First of all, let me say how excited I am to be teaching Year 4 this term! We've got lots of fun and exciting things planned and I can't wait to get cracking! Should you or your child need anything, please don't hesitate to come and speak to me.
Our topic: Survivors (Mountains and forests)
Have you ever wondered 'Why are mountains so important?' and 'Why do we have National Parks and how are different to Marton woods? I'm sure the answer is yes and therefore you'll definitely love our new topic!
We'll be kick-starting our topic with a Mountaineer explorers day where the children will have the opportunity to come dressed as an explorer, take part in den building and learn how to use a compass. Keep an eye out for photos!
Year 4 will get the opportunity to show what 'bright sparks' they are as they explore the topic of electricity.
World Down Syndrome Day - 21st March 2023. We have been learning about what Down Syndrome is and as a class will be supporting WDSD. We will be sharing with the school what we have learnt and encourage the whole school to celebrate down syndrome. We know lots about it so ask us!!
Spring Term 2023
Year 4 are learning about World War 2. We have been learning about what it was like to be an evacuee during WW2 and what this meant. The books we are going to be focusing on are 'My Secret War Diary' by Flossie Albright and 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Robinwood information meeting. Below are the documents we discussed.
It has been fantastic to welcome Year 4 back to school and to see so many familiar faces. They have all been so enthusiastic and engaged with the learning and I can't wait for all the great things we have planned throughout the year.
As you are aware, we have been busy planning the Robinwood trip for February which is a brilliant opportunity for the children to experience some outdoor activities and build string relationships with their peers.
Please find below the Meet the Teacher PowerPoint.
This term we will be exploring the amazing world of The Mayan civilization. We will be looking at their incredible inventions, their amazing calendar and their interesting number system.
