4J

Teacher: Miss Jennings

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Fiddes and Mrs Stevenson

In our class, there are 32 of us, plus our teacher Miss Jennings and our teaching assistants, Mrs Fiddes and Mrs Stevenson, who care for us all. We are eager learners, and we love to talk about our work and learning!

We’ve had a fantastic start to the New Year! We are working hard to ensure our attendance is fabulous and that we each achieve our very best.

4J is a busy learning environment where you will always find us working hard and enjoying our lessons. Miss Jennings has very high expectations, which will motivate us to achieve our best.
We have just launched our first topic – Misty Mountains. Throughout this topic we will develop our understanding of mountains and use atlases to help us identify them on a map.

In English, we use many different texts to enhance and support our learning. Some we will be using this year include: ‘Awful Auntie’ and ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We love to read and delve deep into various different books.

On a Wednesday, we have PE with our PE specialist, Mr Bell, and he teaches us many different sports including tag rugby, football and dance. It’s one of our favourite lessons of the week!

In year 4, we encourage the children to read at home each night – this can include reading on Bug Club. Children will also have the opportunity to visit our library and loan books. As well as reading, the children will be expected to practise their spellings, complete their maths homework and practise their tables – these will be sent home on a Monday and tested every Friday – their scores will be sent home.
Both staff and children are looking forward to the exciting learning that lies ahead.
