Hello and welcome to Year 4's very own class page! We promise to provide you with lots of information about what we are getting up to in class over the next term.
During Term 1 and 2 we are learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We will be extremely busy learning about different aspects of this period in time.
Homework is always set on a Wednesday and due back the following Monday.
Spellings are set each Monday and tested each Friday, please see the spelling booklet provided.
Year 4 visited Perlethorpe Education Centre on Friday 26th April for a Viking experience day.
A fantastic day was had by all. Luckily, the weather stayed dry for us to enjoy lots of outdoor activities. These included jewellery making, Viking games, flour making and den building. Please take a look at the photos below.
Children take part in two PE sessions each week. This reflects the requirements of the National Curriculum, in which all children MUST participate in two hours of physical activity. From September through until February, one session of PE each week will be Swimming on a Monday afternoon.
PE varies each term to provide a variety of skills for the children. Activities include swimming, multi-skills, gymnastics, fielding and striking and competitive sports. Therefore, it is essential that your child is provided with the correct PE kit to allow them to access these activities.
At St Joseph's the PE policy states that children must wear:
Children must remove all earrings and long hair is to be tied up. We ask that all kit is labelled clearly and in a suitable bag. Children are not allowed to borrow PE kits from other children therefore, PE kits should be kept in school during the week.
