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:
Our English learning takes us on a journey with the texts entitled :
"The Firework maker's daughter" by Philip Pullman
As stated in the newsletter, the children will be exploring the language and themes to support them in their rich and detailed descriptive writing, poetry and narratives.
As we are concentrating on Place value this term
here are some ways that you can support your children with this.
As part of their homework, please can you support your children with their times tables.
We are concentrating on the 6, 7 and 9 timetables.

Our focus in Science this term is entitled:
We shall also be combining our knowledge of habitats in this unit to further develop and to build a holistic understanding.
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!
