We are very much looking forward to a happy and busy year in Year 4!
This term we shall be learning all about things going on all around us, in our exciting topic What a Wonderful World’-
This is a Science & Humanities topic, linking to all areas of the curriculum.
Using ‘pupil voice’, children have discussed what they want to learn. They will be taking part in ‘missions’ to discover lots of new skills. The children have decided that they would like to find out what is inside the earth and all about the weather. They’d like to find places using a map of Wales and find out what it was like here a long time ago. We hope to visit Cardiff Bay. They would also like to learn about another country far away. Many of the children asked if we could grow flowers and vegetables. We will to do as much as possible!
Kit –T-shirt, shorts/leggings & trainers. Please remind your child to bring their kit to school on Tuesdays. They may leave it in their locker for a couple of weeks and then bring it home to wash. As the session is towards the end of the day, they may wear their kit home rather than changing back into their uniform.
‘Fun Fitness & well being’ We will do this every morning. The children will get fit and feel good in a fun way!
Pwy sy eisiau ffrwyth?
FRUIT / Ffrwyth: Every morning, the children may buy a healthy snack for 30p. The Year 6 children wash and sell the fruit and count our earnings. We use any profit to buy some special extras for the children in their lessons.
WATER BOTTLES/ Poteli dwr: We are trying to reduce the number of bottles we throw away so are
encouraging the children to bring a water bottle to school or buy a Greenway one from the office for £1.50. They They may fill it at the fresh water fountain. They can keep this in class and re hydrate throughout the day.
Proven to help us to think more clearly and increase our ability to focus.
