Welcome to year 4 - a time for you to really establish yourself in Key Stage 2! This year will be filled with exciting challenges and chances to push yourself and learn new things. From swimming lessons to the timestables test, school trips, visitors in, play leaders and school council there's a place for everyone to shine this year. As well as participating in the acadmeic side of school you'll also have the opportunity to have a role in the classroom where you will feel like you're really contributing to the class. We look forward to working hard with you in Year 4! This term we are exploring the wonders of the world's rainforests and its exotic wildlife. We will dive deep into the hot humid forest and unpick all the layers of the rainforest and its mysteries. Our focus for this half term in numeracy is multiplication, division, area, fractions and decimals. We will be working exceptionally hard on our arithmetic skills and our quick recall of times tables. Guided reading takes place in our classroom every morning where we take part in a whole class text. Our whole class text for this half term is the Dancing bear by Michael Morpurgo. There are 29 pupils in our class! We are a unique bunch and we have fun learning every day!
