We are a class of year 4 children.
Our teacher is Mrs Elliott and Mrs May is our TA.


Autumn Term 2018

We would like to welcome the children back after the summer break.

We have a busy term ahead of us. Our main topic for this term is the Vikings, we will be learning all about how they lived, how they fought and the changes they made to our country. We will also take part in a Viking workshop which we hope will be a fun day. 

We will all have our own class assemblies this term alongside the harvest festival and many of our children will take part in collective worship with Rev. Bill.

We will be attending Saxon pool for swimming lessons this term, as well as some of the children taking part in the tag rugby festival. 

Our term will finish, as always, with the many delights that come with Christmas: parties, pantomime, concerts, Christmas dinner and a visit to St Mary's Church. 

We would like to remind you that the children will be given homework every Wednesday and that it is due in the following week.

Reading journals need to be filled in and handed in on a weekly basis.

Your child will have been given a copy of the days that their class will need these.

When your child does PE or attends a PE event they must remember to bring in the correct kit.

with us in preparation for the transfer to middle school.

In May, we will be celebrating the royal wedding with our own fun and festivities.

This term we will be having a visit from a science team – without giving too much away it will involve some forensics!

The whole school will be busy putting together our summer concert for
festival week later this term.

As always, we will have plenty of sporting clubs and competitions,
including cricket and athletics.

Our sports day will also take place this term.

We end this term with our ‘Step up Day’ where our year 4 children will spend the day at their new middle school and the rest of the children visit their new classrooms.

Finally, we will say goodbye to our year 4 in the time honoured fashion of the leaver’s BBQ and talents!


Spring Term
Although this is a short term, we will be filling it with lots to do.
We will be studying America and the mountain ranges that can be found there, we will be learning about Electricity in science, including the safety aspects.
As part of our RE topic, we will be visiting Queens Park in Bedford for a faith tour, this is always a lovely opportunity to see different places of worship. 
We will also be having creative arts week, which involves a lot of glue, paint and fun!
Our year 4 children will continue to help Rev. Bill to lead our collective worship services in school. The year 4 children will also be attending their first transition event at Etonbury, later on this term.
The SMSA sponsored bounce will also take place this term.
We would like to wish all of our teams good luck in their upcoming sports events throughout this term.
