Year 4

Hello everyone,

We are so excited to welcome you all back for the start of a fantastic new school year! We are going to have a big focus on The Ancient Greeks and learning how they lived back then! We are looking forward to all of the exciting things that we gave planned for this term. We still have a high focus on our mental well-being and how we can keep ourselves healthy.

PE Information

PE is on Wednesday and Thursday. Children in school need to have black shorts and a plain white t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls. Children may also ware a non-school jumper and black jogging bottoms for outdoor P.E. This is especially important to remember now that the weather is getting colder.

All jewellery should be removed and long hair tied back.

IF P.E. kit is not brought in, dojos will be removed and letters will go home to ensure it is brought the following time.

Extended Learning

We expect children to read t home at least four times a week. Please record this in your child’s reading diary when they have read at home (this ca also be a different text to their school book). Please ensure reading books and reading diaries are brought into school daily. Reading is a vital part of your child’s education and it really does help if they read regularly at home. In school, children have daily reading and comprehension lessons.

Please note: any school books that are damaged or not returned after a period of time, may incur a charge for replacement.

Theme

Our Autumn term theme is based around the topic of Ancient Greeks. We will be looking at how they lived in Ancient Greek times including looking at their religion, what they ate and hobbies. We will also be looking at living things in Science such as how to group animals using a classification key.

At Lincoln Gardens, we believe the relationship between school and home is vital, so please do remember that we are available via the class email, Teams or on the Padlet.
