This year in Year 4 we are looking at a range of topics. In the autumn term, we shall be learning about Rain-forests; the layers, their climate and the animals that live in them. Towards the end of half term we are planning a trip to The Butterfly House in Sheffield where we can extend the learning that has taken place in the classroom. In Spring, we are continuing the theme of South America and learning about the ancient civilizations of The Maya and The Aztecs.
For Science, we are learning about living things from the smallest creepy crawlies to the giants of the deep. We will be learning where and how they live. The children will be learning about what we do that impacts on the animals and their habitats.
During our reading sessions, we will continue to explore a variety of texts. Reading is something we love to do and we thank those who are supporting the love of reading with their children at home. We ask you to continue listening to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let their teacher know how they got on.
In Year 4, P.E now takes place on Thursday and Friday afternoon. It is very important that each child brings their own P.E kit (Navy shorts, white t-shirt and plimsoles). We ask that P.E kits are kept in school and taken home to be washed at the end of each half-term.
