Year 4 Owls Ms Flanders
Welcome to Year 4 Owl’s class page!
Class teacher Ms C Flanders
Teaching assistant Mrs Hanif (Miss Baguley – Wednesdays)
Term: Summer 1
Our learning challenge this term is:
‘Footprints in the Sand’
This topic is geography and science based. The children will be learning mainly about recycling and the effect plastics have on our planet. We will also look at coastlines, rocks and the wildlife affected by pollution.
In maths we are working on addition and subtraction with exchanges, working on 4 digit numbers.
In English we will be basing our work around a few different genres. We will be looking at the book ‘Flotsam’; looking at adventure stories through a photograph called ‘Stranded’; writing explanations about our amazing recycling machines and writing newspaper reports about Santa coming to town!
Important dates to remember:
PE is Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit on those days (black shorts and white t-shirt).
Spellings and homework will be given out on Friday for the following Friday. Children should be practising these every night if you or they are unsure of anything please contact me via class dojo.
Homework grids are sent out at the beginning of the term. If you need another one please let me know.
Reading books go home every night. It is vital for your children’s development that you read with them every night and sign their reading journal.
Reading books will be changed when needed.
Please follow our school twitter page @AbingdonPrimary to see updates of exciting things going on in our class. This is where you will find photos and videos of the lovely things your children are doing at school!
At Abingdon Primary we use Class Dojos which is embedded within every year group. This provides the children with an opportunity to earn points based on skills and values created in school and also links in with the schools core values of resilience, respect and responsibility. We use Class Dojos to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. Please sign up to class dojo if you haven’t yet as it is a really effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.
