Who works in the class?
Mrs Gessey & Mrs Reid
In Year 4, we will be studying the Tudors and hope to visit Hampton Court Palace in the Autumn term. During the Spring term, we study the Romans and in addition to a Roman day, will be visiting the Honeywood Museum in Carshalton, where we will take part in a fantastic workshop which investigates Roman artefacts and the contributions the Romans made to life in Britain.
In the Summer term, we visit central London, focusing on the question: Why is London such a great place to live? During this trip, we hope to visit the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye as well as focus on the contribution the River Thames has made to London’s prosperity.
Class Rules and Expectations:
Follow the school’s Golden Rules, listen carefully, work hard (do your best), play fairly and be a good friend.
Now the children are in Year 4 there is an expectation that they will have their own writing and colouring pencils, a pencil sharpener and eraser are also useful: All in a clearly named pencil case.
School uniform, PE kit, lunch boxes and water bottles should all be clearly named, particularly during building work when space is extremely limited.
It is preferable for long hair to be tied back during school, but not essential, except for PE/Games lessons. Whilst small stud ear-rings may be worn to school, they should be removed, or covered with a plaster for PE/Games lessons.
Every day children usually have Maths homework, spellings to practise and reading, preferably adult supervised. This should all be brought into school the following day.
At times, children may be asked to do some extra research, or bring in pictures or artefacts from home – with parental permission of course.
Mathletics offers an ongoing challenge for children to practise their maths skills.
