Welcome Year 4!

Dec 24, 2020 19:58

Welcome to Year 4, we are so excited to start a new school year with you! We hope that your  holiday was filled with memorable experiences and one where you got to spend time with your family and loved ones.

Most of the children have not been in school for a while, so they might be feeling a little anxious about returning after such a long time away. Your child’s emotional and social wellbeing is what we will ensure to focus on in the first few weeks when we return to school. We will be exploring topics such as dealing with worries, feelings about being back at school, friendships and keeping safe and healthy. Please speak to your child about any worries that they might have and remind them that they can also raise their concerns with their class teacher or any member of the Year 4 team.

The school day will be similar to Year 3. In the mornings, the children will have Destination Reader, Literacy and Numeracy lessons, while in the afternoons there will be a combination of Integrated Studies, Science, Art/D.T, P.E. and ICT lessons. We will also be assessing the children in the first half term, to enable us to get a clearer understanding of where children might have some gaps in their knowledge and understanding.

We know that there have been many changes in the world around us and we will be working hard to establish our classrooms as happy, challenging, comfortable, safe learning environments, where we encourage the children to do their personal best.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Year 4 Team
