 Year 4 - Class Eagle

Summer Term 2022

  

Welcome back! How is it the Summer Term already?! I am very much looking forward to getting back into our learning journeys in Year 4 and seeing the children continue to learn and grow through to the end of the academic year.

Please see our Summer Term 2022 Curriculum Letter here updated April 2022

Who's who in Eagle class?

I (Miss Davies) will be the class teacher with the extra added capacity of our student teacher Mrs Macauly returning this term, which I know the children are just as delighted about as I am! We also have Mrs Thomas who will be PPA cover on a Monday and then class TA support on a Tuesday and Thursday where possible.

Important things to note:

 

P.E: This is now on a Thursday and a Friday. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for both indoor and outdoor just in case! See the curriculum letter for more information regarding this.

We will be holding a Viking Experience Day in school in Summer 2 - this date will be confirmed nearer to the time with adequate time given for costume planning don't worry!

We are also hoping to take the class to Croome Park to support with their learning around a Portal Story, where we will spur the children's imagination into what it might feel like to walk through a portal. Again, all of this information will be given nearer the time.

All the information you need regarding the learning taking place in Eagle class is on the separate Summer Term Curriculum Letter found above. Please see me if you are ever unsure or would just like to chat about anything. :)

Helpful Website Links

 
If you have access to an electronic device then there are lots of helpful websites below which you can use to do some different learning:

Your child is familiar with using Education City in school, which is an absolutely fantastic website for English, Maths and Science, which school subscribes to each year. It requires an individual username and password (which your child knows & uses in school). Click here to log in.

TT Rockstars is the tool we have invested in to help children learn their times tables in a fun and modern way.  Your child has their own personalised login.  Click here to access the website.
