Welcome to Year 4!
(and plenty of children!)
AUTUMN TERM 2012
This term we are learning about the Tudors as our overall topic. 'Sound' and 'Insulators and Conductors' are our Science topics.
Any reading you can do around these would be really valuable.
We will be looking to make educational visits to the Peterborough Cathedral and Burghley House in Stamford, both of which have parts built in the Tudor Times.
We will be continuing to learn the violin this term.
You should be reading for 20 minutes each night and doing spellings. You will get three pieces of home learning each week.
PE kit must be in school on a Monday (indoor) and Tuesday (outdoor).
We will be setting some home learning on-line. For those who don't have access to the internet at home, we will be starting an after-school club soon.
Personal Development: In the spring term your child will begin to learn and understand the importance of safety rules and who and when to tell. They will identify those people who they trust, and this will be used to develop a Network of Support. They will be learn to assess how safe they feel in the school and grounds. They will learn about their sixth sense and how to use their senses to help keep themselves safer. Your child will be able to identify and name body parts, including intimate body parts and describe the difference between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ touches. They will be able to describe ‘good’ and ‘bad’ secrets and tricks and be able to demonstrate that they know when to tell, if a secret or trick could hurt someone. They will learn to assess different levels of risk, including problem solving. They will learn to use their voice and body language to help keep themselves safer.
We've only just started learning about the Tudors. There is so much more for you to find out about, so start here.
