Welcome to Year 4 – Elephants class.

I am so looking forward to having everyone back in the classroom. We have missed you all! Things will be a little bit different but we will soon get used to it.

This half term, our topic is all about The Titanic. You will learn about when and where The Titanic sank, the events leading up to and after the disaster. You will discover who travelled on the ship. At the end of the half term, we will be going to visit The Sea City Museum which explains Southampton’s involvement with The Titanic.

The value that we are concentrating on is respect. Who will be our champion? We need to continue to demonstrate our other values: boundaries, focus, self-regulation, resilience and independence to help us achieve our best. We are celebrating our in-class achievements using Class Dojo. As a class, we need to work together to achieve our class stars.

Homework: A menu of homework choices (that are cross curricular) will be given out. A minimum of one piece needs to be handed in every two weeks. I will run a homework club at lunchtime if anyone would prefer to complete it in school with my support. Year 4 will be given spellings to learn and will be tested the following Friday. Times tables and related division facts need to be learnt to aid fluency.

PE: Year 4 have PE on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. PE kits needs to be in school on these days but it is recommended that it stays in school all week. Correct kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or dark shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. Longer hair needs to be tied up and earrings removed or covered.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hawkins
