We have had an extremely busy week in Year 4 learning about teeth, and why we have them, in Science. As well as this, we have begun our History unit- Anglo Saxons and continued our work on Italy. To reflect on the Creation story, we completed some Bible Journaling. The children enjoyed a dance off of Cupid Shuffle- Mr Cooke particularly complimented the dancing of the boys in our class! Well done to Aden, the winner! We rounded off a great week with Dough-nut Friday!
Welcome to the new academic year and Year 4! This is my first year teaching in All Souls’ School, and I am delighted to be back, after spending time here previously in other roles. It is also my first time in Year 4 and I am looking forward to working with you and your child on the journey of creating well rounded, inquisitive, resilient young people. The children will already be aware of the high expectations in Year 4, and I am asking you to support us in helping your children to become independent in their thinking, and therefore, their learning. I have encouraged them to become proactive in their learning and to understand the impact that their actions have on their time in school. The curriculum is jam packed meaning that we don’t have a minute to waste in school time! With your support, I am sure the children will flourish and rise to the challenge.
We have had a great time in Year 4 this week getting to know each other. We particularly enjoyed our ‘Italy’ day, where we made our own Pisa towers in groups, tasted different food toppings for pizza, and learnt some basic Italian phrases!
We started reading our new English text, The Iron Man, and all of the children are keen to see what happens to him now that he has toppled off the cliff.
Ciao for now!
