Chestnut 2017 - 2018

Mr Garrett

Mr Garrett is very excited to be teaching this FANTASTIC class. There is an exciting and fun filled term ahead with lots of interesting things to learn about.

He is lucky enough to have travelled lots of the world and is passionate about sharing stories of his adventures and experiences with the children. He has already shown the children videos of him trekking through the rainforest in Borneo.

He is responsible for Literacy throughout the school, so there is sure to be lots of exciting writing going on in class.

Outside school, Mr Garrett loves to get wet with surfing being his favourite past-time. He also enjoys playing and watching lots of sports which include football, rugby and athletics.

He can often be seen doing after school clubs and other extra- curricular activities.

Welcome to the Year 4 class page!

Welcome to Year 4. I hope you all had a lovely summer, and it is great to see you all back safe and sound. We have an action packed year ahead with lots of exciting topics to explore.

To kick us off, we will be exploring the Ancient Egyptians, writing traditional tales in literacy and getting to grips with place value in maths.

The termly overview is attached below.

 

Thanks to all the parents who attended the Parent's Information Evening. I hope you found the information useful.

The powerpoint has been attached below for your information and for the useful links.

The 'new' homework policy is up and running and we have already had some fantastic examples. Remember that homework should be as neat and well presented as the work in our school books. 

 

Please refer to the homework policy on the main page and check out the homework menu in the files below. 

 

 

 

Spring Term

We have a very busy term ahead, as you can see from the termly overview below (also attached as a file)

For our topic this term we will be exploring the ancient Maya civilization, that settles in South America. In preparation for this, you could brush up on your continents and oceans. If you have any interesting information about the Maya people, please come and share in class. 

We will be doing lots of researching and writing linked to the Maya, and will even try making some of our own Mayan inspired cuisine.

 

 

Homework

Well done to all those 'Homework Heroes' from last term. The new homework menu has been given out, full of delicious looking homework challenges for this term. 

 

 

Swimming

All of year 3 and 4 will be swimming this term. This will take place on Tuesday afternoons, so remember your kit.

 

 

Trips:

The whole school is going to Jodrell Bank this term, linked to our whole school two week Space theme. 

Term 3- Summer Term:

This is going to be a great term. We are kicking it off with a residential trip to Llandudno, where we will be doing some mine exploration, skiing, riding on the tram and exploring the victorian pier. There might even be some ice creams involved!

The topic this term will be The Frozen Planet. Check out the attached curriculum overview for more details about this.

Now the sun is shining, (hopefully this will last) we will try to get outside to do some outdoor learning at least once a day! (follow us on twitter)

PE:

This will now take place on Wednesday and Friday, so please bring the suitable PE kit for outdoor work.

Mindfulness:

Year 3 and 4 are lucky to be chosen to take part in the Mindfulness workshops. This is aimed to help deal with everyday problems in a more suitible way, develop and prolong periods of concentration and to reduce any anxiety or stress from building up. Keep a eye on twitter for pictures and updates.
