Swallows (Year 4)

Class welcome

Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term break.

We have lots of exciting learning ahead of us. This half term in topic we will be finishing off our learning on the Anglo Saxons, before starting our geography work on mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes which I know the class are very excited about!

In English we are going to be continuing to look at the book 'Gut Garden' by Katie Brosnan. We started looking at this before the half term and will finish our writing work on this before we start our next book, 'The Lost Thing' by Shaun Tan.

In maths we will be finishing our learning on length and perimeter, before moving onto fractions. We are continuing to learn our Times Tables also in preparation for the Multiplication Times Table Check (MTC) in June. If you wish for any additional Times Tables work for at home to help your child, just let me know and I can provide this.

Any information you may need will be put onto our class page and you can also find some useful links to websites at the bottom of this page. We also use Twitter to put videos and photos of the exciting work we have completed throughout the term so please check it regularly. 

If you wish to discuss your child's learning, or anything else, please feel free to make an appointment with me, via the school office.

Thank you for all your support.
