Hello and welcome to Year 4!
We are so excited to have you all back to school and can't wait to get stuck into our learning with you.
This term we are taking part in a whole school Topic based around the book Here We Are. We're going to be taking our time to really get to know each other well, understand our strengths together and explore our roles as we work together.

Our Books for Autumn 2020
Our Class Picture Book and Novel
Although a picture book, we will be exploring the themes and ideas though Voices in the Park as seen from four different character's perspectives. We will use this novel to discuss 'What is family?' and how different people can have very different home lives.
The Suitcase Kid will be our first shared novel. Written by famous children's author, Jacqueline Wilson, it tells the story of a young girl, Andy, caught between her parents' bitter divorce, and the determination she has to get her parents back together. However, as the story proceeds, Andy realizes that she has to accept that her parents will not reunite and that she must move on like they did in order to find happiness within two houses and one big, new family.

Not sure what PE kit to provide? Please check below.
During Summer months:
Children are asked to wear black shorts and a white t-shirt. As most of the PE sessions will be outside, children will also need a change of footwear. Children should wear either trainers or pumps.

Children are asked to wear tracksuit bottoms (black or grey) and a white t-shirt. Some PE lessons will be taught inside, so children should also bring shorts.
