Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome back to the Spring Term.
We are all looking forward to another busy couple of terms with your children.
Term 3/4 Learning
Our new topic for terms 3 and 4 is 'Icy Perils'. Your children will be finding out all about the great cold continent of Antarctica, and will be going on an exciting expedition with Ernest Shackleton and his Crew. Here's hoping that the latest pioneering trip to Antarctic by a an international team of scientists, will end in the success of finding the missing Shackleton ship, the Endurance.
I am hoping, also that a good friend of mine, who is in the Antarctic now, will be able to visit us before the end of Term 3 to share what he has been doing there. Fingers crossed for that.
Look out for future photos on the Juniper and Sycamore pages.
PE and Outdoor Learning Autumn Term 2
Outdoor Learning/PE will be on Wednesday afternoons with Mr. Welti
and Mr Gill. Please make sure your children have their wellies and a waterproof coat, in addition to their PE kit on this day.
Gymnastics on Friday afternoons - Juniper
Swimming on Friday afternoons - Sycamore
Please ensure that your child comes in PE kit on Fridays. (Sycamore children will, of course, need to bring their swimming kit.)
Your children are now getting used to Mathletics and it seems they are all enjoying it.
Homework assignments will be set from every Wednesday from 4pm and
we will expect these to be completed by the following Tuesday of each week.
We would love it if you could try to read with your child regularly – 5 signed reads per week – to be entered in the new reading logs your child has brought home. This is in line with the Birdwell School reading policy.
At Birdwell, we are now following the ‘VIPERS’ for reading comprehension scheme You will find a copy the KS2 VIPERS document plus a copy of the VIPERS e question STEMS below.
