Welcome to Birch class
Class teacher: Mr Holman
Teaching Assistants: Miss Redmond, Miss McCarthy
Mr Holman, Miss Redmond and Miss McCarthy would like to welcome you to Year 4!
In our History topic this half term we will be studying the 'Victorians'. We will be looking at what life was like for a child as well as all the different inventions which changed Great Britain and the world. Our key texts will be Oliver and Street Child.
In Maths we will be having a big push of knowing all of our multiplication tables. We all need to know these as we use them so much in every day life as well as in our Maths lessons. Our Year 4 children will also be sitting the new multiplication tables check next summer so we want them to feel confident and well prepared. If you google 'Multiplication Tables Check' you can find lots of free examples of the test. Please do help by practicing all the tables (up to 12x12) with your child as often as you can.
In Science we will be busy investigating materials and their properties. We will be doing lots of investigating and practicing our skills in planning, predicting and drawing conclusions.
Our main PE lesson is on a Monday afternoon with a second one on a Friday. It would be really helpful if your child's PE kit could be in school everyday though. We have the pleasure of experiencing Forest Schools this term so everyone will need a change of clothes on a Tuesday afternoon - these lessons are outside in our school grounds and the children will be having a whole range of different experiences over the term.
Homework will be sent home on a Monday and need to be back in the following Monday.
Thank you for your on going support and please do pop in and see me if you have any questions.
Things to remember:
Diary - Everyday
Homework - Weekly
PE kit- bring in Monday, take home Friday
