Helvellyn - Year 4

knowledge organiser

Welcome to year four!

I do hope that everyone has had a lovely restful holiday and are now ready for a fantastic year.  Our topic this term is chocolate sensation, we will be looking at the history of chocolate and linking this with a study of Mayan civilisation.  Our class text this term will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we will also be studying the life and works of Roald Dahl.

PE days for this term are Tuesday and as from next week we will be going swimming every Wednesday until Christmas.  Please make sure that you have a full kit in school for each PE and swimming session. 

As you are aware we reviewed our school homework policy at the start of last year.  Regular reading at home really helps children to develop in many areas of their education, wellbeing and mental health and is therefore a really important part of your regular homework.  Please continue to record what you have read each time in your log book.  There will also be spellings and times tables to practice at home and talk homework when we are leading up to a longer piece of writing.    

Every Thursday Mrs Burke will be teaching the class science, Spanish, spelling, punctuation and grammar and Mrs Owen will continue to teach music. 

We are very much looking forward to this year and working with you all.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Either call the office to make an appointment or send us an email.

Mrs Atkinson and Mrs Burke.
