There are 20 children in Dragonflies class. Miss Travers is our class teacher. Keep an eye on the web site for all of the exciting things we have in store!
Just to remind you all, please collect your children from the main playground after school. This is the same for dropping them off in the mornings. Please remind your children not to ride on their bikes or scooters in the school grounds.
Year 4 is an exciting one and have lots of fantastic experiences and topics planned throughout the year. To help your child have a deeper understanding and to help make their learning more purposeful and enjoyable we would be grateful if you could assist them with any homework that has been set including the weekly Fab 4 Reading and basic multiplication knowledge, 2x - 12x tables.
Our Fab4 scores this term have not been as good as they could or should have been! Let's make sure we can improve on this next term and ensure more children can achieve this goal, getting their reward!
We have PE every Monday afternoon and a session with Mini Kicks every Tuesday morning (this may change after Christmas).
Our topic next term is 1066.
What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror? Are you ready for a Norman invasion? A French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom!
This topic is very creative with a history focus. We will be learning about William, Harold and Edward, the Bayeux Tapestry and looking at castles. In DT we will be designing drawbridges and castles. We will be learning about dealing with conflict.
Throughout English this term, our focus will be on Charlottes Web by E.B. White.
Over this term, we have shared lots of exciting memories! We had great fun for Children in Need, planted trees on the school field from the Woodland Trust, watched Aladdin at Newark Palace theatre and we have been lucky enough to see the Magnus Swing band!
Next term, we will also be preparing for our Easter production.
