Our Term 6 topic is: Voyage of Discovery
Teacher: Mrs Cuthbert
TA: Ms Edwards
Welcome to Term 6!
We have launched ourselves into our new term by having a Japanese cherry blossom themed day - you can see us enjoying our cherry blossom biscuit on our Japanese themed plates beneath our decort
We continue with our idea of important voyages and will be expanding the idea of amazing journeys in the past and what we have learnt from them. We will also be using this to look at the location and key features of different countries; our first port of call will be Japan where we will look at cultural, historical and geographical features of the country.
Where we go next will be very much determined by the interests of the class.
Will we follow James Cooke to Australia or discover what happened to Titanic's voyage?
PE - Monday and Thursday (swimming for Year 3)
Children should be reading at home every night but should be reading to an adult at home a minimum of 3 times per week. Year 4 children are still developing their vocabulary and comprehension skills which aide them in all areas of the curriculum. Please fill in your child’s reading journal each time they read at home; either to an adult or independently, as children receive a certificate at the end of each term if they have completed 5 pages in their home reading record. The reading must be recorded for it to count!
P.E. Kit: Year 4 Children are timetabled for two P.E sessions each week. Year 3 children will have PE and swimming. Our PE sessions are on Monday and Thursday. They require suitable kit for sessions. Could parents/guardians please ensure children have a full P.E Kit in school and that it still fits! Earrings MUST be removed or covered with plasters.
The school day starts at 8.50 and doors will be open from 8.45. Please help your child to arrive on time and to enter the school building independently. If you would like to speak to your child’s class teacher, please make an appointment as this ensures the class teacher is able to settle the children ready for the day.
We welcome any parents who would like to volunteer.
Thank you for your support.
