Welcome to Year 4
The Year 4 classes are Heron and Osprey.
Our teaching team consists of Mrs Garrett and Miss Culverhouse in Heron and Mr Reilly in Osprey. In addition, Mrs Mounir, Miss Hover and Mrs Fuoco will be working alongside both classes providing invaluable support and teaching.
The first part of our learning journey this year will takes through an exploration of Ancient Egypt whilst also learning about the geography of modern day Egypt and other areas. We will then learn about our Earth and its extreme weather and fascinating geographical features. This will also learn about the Romans and then the Anglo-Saxons and the ways in which they have influenced the country and world we live in today.
Another focus this year will include fostering a love of reading – reading, listening to, sharing and discussing books. Also, towards the end of the year, all Year 4s across the country will participate in a times table screening – a little bit like the Year 2 phonics screening. We will therefore have a strong focus on learning times tables – in terms of both understanding and rapid recall.
Throughout the year, as a team, we will be promoting the four Meadowside Values of Resilience, Responsibility, Reflection and Respect.
We strongly believe that children learn best in a calm, happy and safe environment where there is clear communication and support between home and school.
We are all looking forward to an exciting year of learning and seeing the children in Year 4 flourish.
