Welcome to Year 4 Miss Stevenson's Class
Spring Term 2018
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and are refreshed and ready to enter the Spring Term. We have exciting new topics to explore and I'm sure that we will have lots of fun learning together.
This term, our topic is "Rock 'n' Roll". We will be learning about the Earth's structure, what causes earthquakes and how volcanoes are formed. There will be many opportunities for collaborative work, independent research and writing. The Creative Overview featured below demonstrates how subjects connect through this topic.
Children are asked to bring their reading book and record to school each day. I am encouraging the children to practise reading aloud at home and keep a signed record of their reading both in school and at home.
Homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned 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 Monday and Friday and our current units of study are Netball and Gymnastics. Please ensure full P.E. kit is brought into school and that items are clearly labelled.
I look forward to getting to another fun term.
