Welcome to Year 4!
We are really looking forward to working with you this year.
Our topic: Bottoms, burps and bile.
Open wide – let’s take a look inside. We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouthwatering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body.
For all our PE sessions children will need to bring their full PE kit - blue/black shorts, white T-shirt and trainers (including tracksuits for colder days). Children with ear-rings will have to remove them or cover them with tape - to be provided by home.
Outdoor PE: Monday
Indoor PE Thursday
Homework will be set on Google Classroom on a Thursday and will be due on the following Tuesday. Those families who do not have access to Google Classroom are to let the class teacher know and a paper copy will be provided.
It is important that you are giving your child the opportunity to read to you every day. Please record this in their planner.
New spellings are set on a Friday and should to be practiced at home each night in preparation for a spellings test the following Friday.
Don't forget to go on Times Tables Rock Stars! This is a great opportunity to challenge your Maths skills at home!
