Article 29: Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.

Welcome back Year 4! Our Topic question this term is ‘How Can We Improve Our School Grounds?’ Linking with our Geography map work we will be exploring the school grounds, thinking about which areas need development and how this can be achieved. Our History work is focusing on the Vikings, specifically the Viking raids and invasions. If you have any interesting pictures or artefacts, please feel free to bring it in so we can share it in a show and tell session.

Our RE topic entitled ‘Building Bridges’ is all about Reconciliation and forgiveness in order to build bridges with each other. Our Big Question for this topic is ‘Why Are Bridge Builders Important In Life?’ We will be exploring scriptures such as The Good Shepherd, Luke 15, 3-7 to learn how the Sacrament of Reconciliation brings us back to God, who forgives us and absolves us from our sins.

We will be completing regular spelling and grammar sessions to support our English work. Ensure you are practicing your spelling words every day, including additional words which follow the same spelling patterns we are focusing on each week. Daily reading should also take place at home to support our guided reading and comprehension sessions in school.

This term’s PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure you have the appropriate outdoor and indoor PE kit with you. Earrings should be removed and long hair should be tied back. Outdoor learning will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure you have a hat and sun cream with you as the weather is getting rather hot!
