Welcome to Raven Class. I hope you have all had an enjoyable summer and that the children are ready for the new challenges of Year 4. I’m excited to be teaching Year 4 and looking forward to getting to know all of the children, over the first term and throughout the year.
Hopefully you were able to have attended the Meet the Teacher session that I held today and it helped your understanding of what we would be covering and the expectations for the year. If you were unable to attend and feel that you would like to still meet me and have a chat that is absolutely fine, please just contact the office and let them know what day straight after collection, you would like to meet me over the next couple of weeks. Any day apart from Monday is great.
Our Literacy, Reading Skills, Art and some of our Music lessons, will all be connected to the class text that we have already began exploring. The text for this term is How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. By focussing in on one particular text the children will be able to gain a greater understanding of the story and it will hopefully lead to them becoming more avid readers.
Our Topic subject this term is Geography and we will be comparing Kent and the Netherlands, looking at both similarities and differences in both physical and human geography.
Mrs Walter and Mrs Whiteman will be supporting Year 4 throughout the week, on Wednesday afternoons I will be out of class and Mrs Hand and Mrs Walter will be there to help and support the children and for this Term, on Friday mornings, a specialist sports teacher will be taking the class for tennis.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if any concerns or queries arise throughout the year and I am always happy to have a chat after school, as often a quick conversation can be a lot more efficient and effective than a series of emails. I do also appreciate however that with work and other commitments this might not be possible so have included my email below.
