Welcome to our Year 4
Mrs Matthews, Miss Batt & Mrs Quinn
Welcome to the strangest start to Year 4 ever! 2020 will forever be remembered for the unprecedented events that have shaken the world we know. After a 6 month period of Lockdown; we are all striving to get back to some kind of ‘normal’ and begin to resume school life in the best circumstances possible.
In our year group we pride ourselves on our pupils trying their hardest and becoming more independent leaners. We will endeavour to do this by having an enthusiastic and positive approach to learning; motivated by a range of excellent opportunities. Obviously, because of events out of our control, this may take longer this year or look a bit different. Also some pupils may need extra support and time; which we will readily provide and take the steps together, no matter how small or big they are.
We aim to create memorable experiences for our children, inside and outside of the classroom where ever possible, challenging their inquisitive and curious minds. As a team we consistently promote positive behaviour and use Dojo points to reward and incentivise our children to always try their best and demonstrate our six core ‘DREAMS’ values. This year more than ever, our children will be displaying their determination and resilience, as events may occur along the way that may re-route our learning journey; however together we will ensure that they stay on the right path.
Through the curriculum this year we will be exploring and enjoying some exciting topics. From discovering all about Europe and North America; including what it’s like to live in these places and their cultures; to learning about Volcanoes across the world and the ferociousness of them. We cannot wait to re-trace our steps in history and teach topics such as the Romans, Victorians and the Shang Dynasty. As Scientists, we will delve into the workings of the ear and how sound is made and travels; as well as sparking your imaginations exploring how electricity works. In P4C we will be challenging stereotypes and generating questioning about the world in a fun and supportive way. SMSC is a great vehicle for exploring events, famous people and traditions; we will take that journey together. These are just a selection of the stimulating topics we have to look forward to this year.
Regardless of what may come our way this year, we will face it together and ensure that it is a successful and brilliant experience for all; creating memories to cherish, stretching knowledge and enhancing learning along the way.
Here’s to an amazing year in Year 4!
