Spring Term 2020
Welcome to Spring Term 2020 in Year 4.
This term is going to be very exciting for many different reasons! All of us have much to look forward to.
Below you will discover our new topics in Science, History and Geography and the narratives we will share during English and Guided Reading lessons.
We ask that your child brings their reading book into school each day so that they may be heard read by an adult when possible. The details of this terms Reading Challenge will be announced soon.
It is with great excitement that Times Tables Rock Stars is to be introduced this week into school, for children from Year 1 to Year 6. This will help and support the learning and revision of times tables and division facts for all children in these year groups. Your child will be informed of their login and [password this week. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Evans if your child has not been given this, forgotten or lost this information.
The topics for this half term are as follows;
Science - Nutrition, Muscles and Skeletons
History - Ancient Greeks
English - Odd and the Frost Giant by Neil Gaiman
- Ancient Greek myths
It is will delight that your child will have the opportunity in Music to learn a stringed instrument - either a violin or a cello. You and your child can choose which instrument they would like to learn how to play. Each Friday afternoon, your child will be taught how to care for and play their instrument by Mr Jim Taylor. After their lesson, Mr Taylor may give them a sheet of music for them to practise before the next session. We would be very grateful if you would encourage them to complete so that much progress can be achieved. Year 4 children will have this fantastic opportunity to play until Christmas 2020.
Please take note of the changes to our timetable this term. These are as follows;
- Friday afternoon swimming sessions have now ended for children in Year 4.
- PE lessons will take place on Monday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in on these days.
- Music lessons will begin this coming Friday. Your child must bring their instrument to school in each Friday for their lesson (more information on this below).
Date for your diary - Thursday 27th February 2020 - Parent's Evening
