Welcome to Year 4


Welcome back to the Summer term. We hope you had a restful Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine! It was great to see so many of you dressed in bright clothes to celebrate the risen Lord (See photo gallery). 



Charlie and the Chocolate Factory



 Our topic this summer term is 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. During this topic, we will read the great novel by Roald Dahl and there will be lots of opportunites for fantastic writing such as character descriptions, newspaper reports and adverts. In science, we will look at states of matter and have lots of fun melting and tasting chcolate. We will find out about the Cadbury family and all about the cocoa been. There will be lots of new SPAG and lots of opportunities for writing, including character descriptions, setting descriptons, instructions, diary entries and narrative. We will even include lots of forest school activites including, designing and making the boat from the chocolate river and creating each of the characters from the book. 





Homework will continue the same this year and will consist of Spellings, Timestables and Reading. Each week, the children will learn a new spelling rule and a new set of timestables, and will be expected to complete activities based around these at home. As always, reading homework is expected every night for at least 10 minutes. The children will recieve a levelled book that they will be expected to read each night and will be changed weekly. Alongside this, the children will also take home a library book of their choice and have access to 'Bug Club.' There will be special prizes for those children accessing Bug Club and completing books regularly smiley





PE lessons will take place on Wednesdays - full PE kit (including pumps and outdoor trainers) will be needed, this will remain in school and get sent home at the end of each half term

Forest School sessions will also take place on a weekly basis- outdoor clothing (including wellies or walking boots) will be needed. This will be sent home weekly.



As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to me at the end of the day or schedule a longer appointment. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you over the year.

Miss Smith and Mrs Cash
