Welcome to Year 4

It’s been a great start to year 4 as we’ve been getting to know the children.

We have some exciting lessons planned this year – The Romans, Shang Dynasty, The United Kingdom, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Saving Planet Earth and Amazonia! Children will explore different aspects of history going across the globe.

To go with these are some exciting books – Queen of Darkness and Viking Boy by Tony Bradman, What a Waste by Jess French, Cloud Busting by Malorie Blackman, The Tin Forest by Helen Ward, The Promise by Nicola Davies just to name a few.

A few reminders for the Autumn term:

  • Swimming: Mondays (Pioneer class will aim to return to school for 3:30pm. Hubble class will be back in school for the usual pick up time of 3:15pm)
