Welcome to Year 4!
Outlined below is what we will be learning about this term and some general information about the class.
During this term, in English we are using the book Journey by Aaron Becker. This is a beautiful, wordless book that really allows children's imagination to fly.
This term we will be focusing on Geography and studying land-use patterns in our human and physical geography unit. We will also have a trip to 'Living Land' to link this to agriculture and land-use.
In art, we will be studying the work of Georgia O'Keeffe, recreating work inspired by her and dipping into the skill of printing.
Staff in Raven Class
Mrs Dunmore is our teaching assistant and she will be in class every morning to support the children's learning. We also have Mrs Vaughn who is in class for 1:1 support every morning.
Miss Hand and Mrs Walter cover PPA on a Thursday afternoon.
In Year 4, the children choose their own books to read at home. Not only does this promote independence but the children pick books that interest them and therefore get more enjoyment from their reading. The children should still be reading 5 times a week and this should also include reading with an adult, where the adult can extend their understanding by asking questions about the text.
The children will be set weekly homework on a Friday, this will include reading, EdShed and/or purplemash, times tables and spellings.
