Here is the Year 4 team! From left to right: Miss Smith, Miss O’Keefe, Mr. Burtonshaw, Mr. Calloway, Mr. Dyer – Mr. Evans will be teaching P.E this year and Mrs. Norley-Claridge will be teaching science.

Welcome to the Summer term in year 4. This term our project is ‘Planet Earth but for how long?.  This term articles 24 and 29 from the Unicef Convention on the rights of the child fit perfectly with our project, as they reflect the importance of understanding how to protect the environment. We will also be focusing on Sustainable Development Goal 13 (Climate Change). More information on the Sustainable Development Goals can be found here:

 Science this term complements our project as it is about ‘Living things and their habitats’. We’ll explore different ways to classify living things. There will be plenty of opportunities to use the rich outdoor environment to support our learning.

To link in with this term’s project and science, we will be visiting St. Fagan’s near Newport (the Welsh Museum of Natural Life). This trip will take place in term 6 and details will be given soon.

Homework will continue to be set weekly – going home on a Friday and due in on the following Wednesday.

Please do support your child at home with reading, spellings, times tables and maths using the interactive games on the ActiveLearn website. Log in to ActiveLearn using the first four letters of your forename and surname, followed by the password ‘rat’ and the school code ‘wtla’.
