Year 4 - Kestrels and Rabbits
Year 4 Newsletter
Welcome back Parents and Carers. We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas break and are ready for a great school year.
We are looking forward to working together as a partnership to help your child reach their full potential. If you have any questions or concerns please come in and see us.
This term our class novels are “Beowulf” by Rob Lloyd Jones and “Why the Wales came.” by Michael Morpurgo. These books will support our learning through Literacy and our history topic of Invaders and Settlers and our science topic of sound.
Homework tasks including spellings will now be set weekly on Mathletics and Reading Eggs. If you’re experiencing trouble with logging on please do not hesitate to contact the office.
Please listen to and encourage your child to read at home. It is helpful to discuss the content of the books with your child, to develop their comprehension skills and understanding.
Our topics for this spring term are states of matter and sound. We will be looking at changes of matter e.g. evaporation and condensation. In sound we will be learning about how sound is made and patterns in pitch and volume.
PE will be as follows:
Kestrels – Wednesday, Thursday
Rabbits- Wednesday, Thursday
We are looking forward to a great term working with you and your child.
Thank you for your support.
