Welcome back Jaguars! I hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and welcome to Year 4. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time getting to know the children so far, I feel that we have a tremendous year ahead of us.
For those of you that I haven’t had chance to meet, my name is Anisha Jumbu and I will be your child’s teacher this year, I am really looking forward to making some fabulous memories with all of you at Haddon Primary. In Year 4 we also have our lovely teaching assistants Mrs Wilson and Miss Clarke.
To begin the year, we will be focusing on the book ‘Charlottes Webb’ by E.B White. In lessons, we will be using this text to incorporate grammar, punctuation and spellings, that the children will be learning this year.
To begin this term, we will be focusing on place value, Roman numerals, rounding and negative numbers. During our second term, we will be focusing on our addition and subtraction skills before moving onto length and perimeter.
This half term our enquiry will be focused on the Romans and answering the question: Is there anything positive about being invaded?
We will be learning about the local art, culture, history and geography of the Romans and the significant impact they have made on Britain.
PE will now take place on Tuesday and Fridays. It is important that children bring warm outdoor kit, in case PE is outdoors – this is dependent on the weather. If there are any issues with PE, please let me know.
Homework will consist of a range of Maths, English and Enquiry activities and will be posted each week on Class DOJO. I also encourage the use of Times Table Rockstars at home, as it is crucial that in Year 4 children become fluent with their times tables. If there are any issues with any homework or logging into Class DOJO, TTRS, please do not hesitate to let me know.
All children have now been provided a book from the school library and will receive a link up diary. Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and record this in their link up diaries.
Please feel free to let me know any concerns or questions you may have – I look forward to meeting you all soon!
