Kangaroos - Year 4

🍂 FOREST SCHOOL ðŸ‚

 

- Forest school is scheduled in for each Tuesday afternoon for Kangaroos. Please ensure that you all come with your legs covered on a Tuesday. Tights must be worn with skirts, if you do not want to have your legs covered all day, please bring in some jogging bottoms/trousers/tights or an alternative that you can change into during lunch before the afternoon period. If you do not have your legs covered, you will not be joining in with Forest School. Children are also encouraged to bring in wellies for Forest School, we are happy to keep these in school if it means that they are here when needed. Finally, please consider the weather on the day and make sure you bring appropriate outer wear. Thank you! :-) 

Kangaroos 2021

 

Hello Kangaroos!

 

I am so excited for the start of this year and to meet you all! We have so many exciting things planned already and I can't wait for us all to get started.

 

Please remember that Year 4 learning starts at 8:45 am and finishes at 3:25 pm.

 

AUTUMN 1:

In English, we will be looking at The Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman which is a brilliant book that I am sure you will love as much as I do. Throughout the year, we will also be looking at a collection of poems by Michael Rosen, starting off with Don't Put Mustard in the Custard.

 

In Maths, we will be starting the year thinking about place value, and I'll add more detail about that as we go through the unit so you can support your Kangaroos learning at home.

 

In History, we will be looking at Ancient Greece and their way of life. A topic which I cannot wait to delve in deeper with you all.

 

In Science, we will be starting off with the Animals including Humans topic; looking at the digestive system and our teeth (we already have some great experiments lined up for you!)

 

In RE, we are thinking about what kind of world Jesus would want.

 

Our PE day will be Thursdays. Please have your child come into school wearing their PE kit on this day. PE will start on Thursday 9th September. 

 

Kangaroos won't be swimming for this first half term, instead we will be entering our forest school every Tuesday afternoon! I can't wait to start exploring with you all. 

 

Reading Records need to be handed in on a Friday, and will be returned on a Monday. Reading scheme books will only be changed on a Monday.

 

Mrs Hobbs is our Kangaroos TA and will be with us in class everyday.

 

If you have any questions, queries or worries, please don't hesitate to speak to me. I am available on the playground from 8:40 am every morning.

 

Thanks, and see you all on Monday 6th September!

 

Miss Briggs :-)
