Y4 Walliams Class



Hello and welcome to Year 4 Walliams!

Myself and Mrs Righton are very much looking forward to the upcoming year and cannot wait to share some of our exciting plans with you.

In Humanities this year, we will be focusing on The Romans in autumn and The Anglo-Saxons in spring. As well as this, we will be studying a very famous Volcano and the city it buried.

Please do take a look at the curriculum overview maps to see what other academic content we will be covering throughout the autumn term.

Our PE days this year will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are very aware that primary schools do not usually offer 3 PE lessons a week, however we are very privileged to have BB Soccer taking a short 45 minute session each Thursday morning.

We cannot stress how important it is to try and read with your child as often as possible. Whilst we accept that sometimes parents are extremely busy, reading provides children with a basic skill that encounters everything they will do, both inside of school and out. Even just listening to the children whilst you are preparing dinner is beneficial!

Homework will be set every Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. This will involve a maths task and spellings as well as some English, Humanities or Science.

Should you have any concerns or wish to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to ask the office to arrange a convenient appointment. I am also always happy to discuss anything and am mainly available after school for longer discussions. Alternatively, you are always welcome to write a note and pass it to me in the mornings, however I won’t always be able to discuss the contents in the morning due to time constraints and maximising educational time.

And one final note! Please don’t forget to label your children’s school uniforms and PE kit items; this makes it far easier to track down the correct child regarding any lost property.

Thank you!

Miss Hart and Mrs Righton
