Monday 12th April 2021
Welcome back to school. We hope that you have had a safe and joyful Easter break. This term we will continue to keep the children as safe as possible with regular hand washing and sanitising (they are very good at this!), and we will be available to answer any questions you may have via class Dojo.
- In English we will be taking part in a special Barbican Box project. The Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning team have worked closely with Michael Rosen (poet and author) and Tina Bicat (designer) to create a box of objects to support and facilitate creative arts and writing practice.
- In maths we will focus on: fractions, decimals, and money.
- In geography we will compare and plot trade links, past and present, in King’s Lynn and study the local economy.
- In history we will consider whether we would rather live in medieval King’s Lynn or in King’s Lynn today? We will focus on the Hanseatic League and medieval merchants.
- In R.E. we will learn about the early Christians, including Peter and Paul, and increase our understanding of Pentecost.
- In art we will be designing and making our own poetry posters and Barbican boxes.
- In guided reading we will continue reading Stig of the Dump by Clive King.
- In music we will be learning ‘Stop!’ an anti-bullying song.
- In P.E. we will be doing Bootcamp and striking and fielding. The children need to wear P.E. kits to school please.
- Year 4 Yellow: P.E. on Wednesday and Thursday.
- Year 4 Blue: P.E. on Thursday and Friday.
We will be moving towards online home learning via google classroom. The children all have their login details and home learning will be set every Friday. It is due in by the following Wednesday. The children should be able to upload their work onto google classroom once it is complete.
If you do not have access to a google classroom at home then please let us know so that we can make alternative arrangements for your child.
We will continue to have spelling tests every Friday; the spellings will be uploaded to google classroom for the children to practise. In addition to this, we expect them to read at home and practise their times tables every day.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Lowe and Mrs Doherty.
