Welcome to Year 4 Mrs Neesam's Class
Autumn Term 2018
I hope you all had a wonderful Summer break enjoying precious time with family and friends. It's exciting to enter the Autumn Term with new topics to explore and I'm sure that we will have lots of fun learning together.
This term, we will focus on the Roman Conquest and occupation of Britain. This is a centre of learning that will enable pupils to study the Roman way of life including homes, cooking, religion, food, entertainment and trade. There will be many opportunities for collaborative work, independent research and drama. The Creative History Overview featured below demonstrates how subject connect through this topic.
Pupils are asked to bring their reading book and log to school each day as this will enable me to provide a comment to inform you when Guided Reading sessions have taken place. Please spend time with your child discussing the setting, characters and development of plot to further their understanding of the text. Children are encouraged to clearly note dates and pages read. Feedback from parents/carers is always greatly appreciated.
Homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned in the folder provided the following Friday. Weekly homework will include a Maths based activity to reinforce learning which has taken place during the week and a spelling activity. The children will be tested each Friday on the spelling words and they will be assessed each Monday on times table facts.
We have P.E. sessions each Tuesday and Wednesday and our current units of study are Hockey and Dance. Please ensure full P.E. kit is brought into school and that items are clearly labelled.
