Challenge of the week!

May 20, 1932 - Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She departed Newfoundland, Canada, at 7 p.m. and landed near Londonderry, Ireland, completing a 2,026-mile flight in about 13 hours. Five years later, along with her navigator Fred Noonan, she disappeared while trying to fly her twin-engine plane around the equator.

What else can you find out about her? Could you write a newspaper report relating to her adventures? A fact file? Recount? Could you produce your own model plane?

Welcome back to the Spring Term,

Hope you have all enjoyed the break.

Lots of exciting things to look forward to this term:

Reading Charlie and the Chocolate to inspire us to write our own explanation.

Learning all about the Earth, Sun and Moon, and their relationship in Science.

Maths, we will be converting measures, looking at shapes, locating co-ordinates, as well as practising our basic skills.

We will be studying France this term.

 

 

Remember to keep reading at home. Let's be the first class for everybody to receive their Reading certificate.

Keep practising you times tables. Purple Mash calculator is great to help. All children have been provided with a login.

PE will take place every Thursday so please ensure that you bring in your PE kit.

Every child has a Google account to which they can access at home. There are many activities and links on Google Classroom ( Class code:rnjhadz) to help support your child's learning.  

 

Miss McKuhen

 

Welcome to Year 4’s class page!

 

Welcome back after the Summer holidays!

 

There are lots of exciting new topics this year:

English - Roman mysteries, recounts, diaries and many other genres of writing.

Science - looking at difference forces and the effects that they have. Do you know who discovered gravity? 

Humanities - Revolting Romans. When did the Romans rule? How many countries did they take over? 

Plus many other interesting lessons and activities to keep your brains active. 

 

 

All Year 4 children will be learning the guitar this year; lessons will be every Friday afternoon. Let’s see if we have any budding superstars amongst us!

 

As always, we ask that you encourage your child to read as much as possible at home – both their home/school reading books and books of their own choosing. Every time you read with your child, please mark it in their reading diaries as we’re hoping to give out a record number of Gold reading awards this year.

 

P.E. will be each Thursday and children must have their kits in on this day.
