Year 4 newsletter: Term 6
Welcome back after the break, we hope you have all had a good rest over the holidays!
We will continue with our Topic ‘How do we impact on the environment?’ We are also welcoming a Science workshop about space, kindly arranged by the PTA. Here we will answer enquiry questions posed by the children, producing some art work and having the opportunity to present their findings at the Sefton Summer Fair on Saturday 15th June. Towards the end of the term, we will end with a Science unit, looking at light and sound.
PE will continue to be on Wednesdays for both classes. PE will be outside this summer term, so please make sure your child brings in clearly labelled appropriate clothing. It's that time of year for sports day too- more details to follow nearer the time.
RE enquiry day
This term's enquiry question is 'What does it mean to belong to a religion?' where we look specifically at religious festivals within Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Sikhism. We will also discover how religions help in the local commnunity. If you have any expertise in these religions, or indeed any others not listed above, we would love to have you in to talk to the class. Please speak to your class teacher if you are interested.
How you can help at home
Thank you for your continued support prioritising the usual daily reading, times tables practise and spelling practise. Our reading journals are proving very popular! We also recommend 40 minutes of home learning per week, which is set on Thursdays and returned the following Tuesday. Home learning and spellings for each class is available on the school website.
If anyone has some spare time to hear children read in class, then your class teacher would love to hear from you! Thank you to those of you who have already given up your time for this, it is greatly appreciated.
If you would like to meet with us for an informal chat, we are available most days after school. Please leave a message at the school office so we can arrange a good time to meet. Please feel free to leave any morning messages with a member of staff who is out in the playground, who will be happy to pass them on to the relevant teachers. Alternatively, you can leave a message in the school office. If there are any changes to home time arrangements, then please let us know earlier in the day. Thank you for your cooperation.
