Welcome to Year Four!

Our main theme for this term will be Roman Britain. We will begin by asking the children to complete a historical learning log task, based on a brief overview of Celtic history. Following on from this, we will be travelling back in time to Roman Britain to investigate how Celtic life changed and the continued legacy of their impact. This will link into our Writing and Art work, as well as our DT, where we will be sewing a Roman money container.

HOME LEARNING

This will continue to alternate between English and Maths, which will be set every Monday via your class’ Microsoft Teams account. Please ensure that your check these accounts regularly for any updates or messages your teachers may post. Daily Reading: Despite the fact that we are unable to send out the pupils’ Reading Record books, we would encourage all pupils to continue to read at home daily, where possible.

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

We would like to invite all Year 4 pupils to wear their PE Kits to school every Tuesday. Pupils will have a PE lesson each week. For reasons of safety and personal hygiene, it is important that they are appropriately dressed for the PE activities. Additional safety precautions during PE: Earrings need to be removed or covered with plasters or tape (to be supplied from home) and long hair needs to be tied back. No watches or rings please. PE Kit: Children are encouraged to wear black shorts and or jogging bottoms; their school or black jumper / zip-up jacket; their house coloured PE t-shirt or plain white is also acceptable. Please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear. At this time, all games will be held outdoors, therefore, trainers are essential to ensure your child can take part in all activities safely.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have via the office email: solentjunior@thesolentschools.org

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Colarusso, Miss Gall and Mrs Andrews

A Special Thank You

We would like to take a minute to thank all of our incredibly supportive Year 4 adults during the course of lockdown for your continued support. Although we’ve only been back for a very short space of time, it has become very evident to us that the level of support that a majority of our pupils received was phenomenal. For that, we would genuinely like to extend our heartfelt thank you for utilising the remote learning we set to its maximum potential.
