Year 4

Year 4 is taught by Mrs Walters. Our teaching assistants are Miss May. Mrs Osborn, Mrs Pascoe and Mrs Kalber also work 1:1 with children in the class.

This term, our theme is ‘From Stone age to Iron age. We’ll be writing explanations of how Stonehenge and The Merry Maidens stone circles were built. We’ll also write our own legend based on the tale of the Merry Maidens.

English

We continue to focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling. Spellings will be sent home each Friday to be practised at home and will be assessed the following Friday.

The children will also be given the exciting opportunity to enter the 500 words story writing competition on Radio 2.
