In order for learning gaps not to increase over the closure period, please:
Welcome to Year 4!
This half term we will be exploring 'Crime and Punishment ' through the ages. As a link to this topic, Year 4 will be going on an exciting trip to the Tower of London, one of Britain's most famous fortress and prison. It will be a very early start but the children are very excited about it so please ensure you have handed in your permission slip. The trip will be on Tuesday 4th February. We will be leave school by 7:15am so please ensure you arrive promptly to school by 7am. We will be returning to school for 4:30pm.
As part of the 'Crime and Punishment' topic, the children will be exploring Shakespeare's work 'Macbeth'. The children will be writing character descriptions, recounts, letter and their own play. They will also be using a lot of drama to visualise Shakespeare's play.
Please make sure your PE kit is definitely in school from a Monday and stays in all half term. As the colder months are closing in please bring long trousers and a jumper for PE as well as suitable shoes. PE will be on Monday and Thursdays.
Please continue to read with your child every day at home and practise their spellings and times tables. We do a times table test every day and a spelling test every Friday. The words and dates are listed below.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and thank you for your support!
Miss Portsmouth :)
