Hello and welcome to the Year 4 webpage!
For this academic year the teaching team for Year 4 are:
Teachers: Ms Jones (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Mackie (Thu-Fri)
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Chamberlain
The topics undertaken this term are: Science - completing' Habitats and Living Things' before moving onto Animals (this has been linked to the much anticipated visit to Marwell Zoo); Geography - Geographical Skills and Fieldwork; Art - will involve cooking which will be linked to 'food' in French. In computing, the children will be learning to create their own codes using the 'Scratch' programme whilst in music, they will be learning to play percussion instruments as part of the ‘Listen2Me’ programme.
P.E lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays so the children must ensure they have the appropriate kit on these days. For this half-term, we are fortunate to have a coach from the Emsworth Cricket Club in to teach cricket on the Wednesday afternoon session.
Home learning will be given out on a Wednesday and is due back the following Tuesday. For Maths homework, tasks are often set on 'Mymaths' which require the children to complete the tasks on the computer. Unfortunately, home learning handed in after the above day may not be marked. We would also consider it very beneficial for children to read regularly at home to an adult or older sibling and to learn their times tables.
Thank you for your continued support,
Year 4 Team
