Learning without Limits

We understand and appreciate the power of positive learning.

We all need encouragement to bolster and foster greater confidence when life throws different curve balls at us.

In year 4 we aim to build our learners into becoming independent thinkers, to draw on their resilience, determination, efforts and commitment.

Skills which can not be taught, but guided.

Each half term we have themes to which the children experience when best to apply it to situations to help overcome them.

This half term we are focussing on:

EFFORT

PASSION

PERSERVERANCE

 

English

Our English learning takes us on a journey with the texts entitled :

"The Firework maker's daughter" by Philip Pullman

    This half term we have linked our Geography and English lessons together.
        Using the "Firework maker's daughter" and studying "Volcanoes".

We want to immerse the children into an experience to which they may grasp   confidently with the recent global events such as Kilauea in Hawaii.

We will be building volcanoes as part of a school project.

So listen out for requests of the children for recyclable items they may need to bring in!

Check out the links below to begin to support your child's learning gateway into "Volcanoes".

Volcano - video for kids || Volcano eruptions

A volcano is a mountain that is disclosed downward to a pool of molten rock beneath the surface of the earth and whenever pressure builds up, the eruptions occur.
