Year 4 2018 - 2019

Mrs Barrett



Hello everybody and welcome to year 4!

I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our class. Year 4 is a hard working group of polite, creative children who have a great team spirit.

We develop our English skills using an exciting text and topic each term.  We read many types of text, identifying and summarising the main ideas to improve on our comprehension skills, before moving onto planning and producing our own writing. In addition to this we incorporate story-telling, drama and role play to enhance our learning experience.  At the end of each English uit we like to perform or publish our work.

Maths is taught using the Singapore Maths concept.  Our RE, Music, Citizenship, PE, French and Computing are taught in stand-alone lessons,  whereas Science, Art and DT are taught mostly through our topics.

Our exciting topics this year will enable us to discover how we digest food, where our food comes from, how the Ancient Egyptians lived (and died!), who the great inventors were and what they invented, who the Anglo-Saxons were and when they lived and Britain and its changing place in Europe after Brexit.

During the year, we look forward to Swimming and PE sessions, working with Premier Sport. Mr McGuiness will take our Music lessons each Monday: teaching us to play trumpets and trombones!

We also hope to have some awe-inspiring educational visits, including a visit to The Manchester Museum.  These will include a range of exciting and challenging activities - like working with real Ancient Egyptian mummies!

I’m sure you will all agree the coming months look very busy and very exciting. I am certain we are going to have a great time working together.
