Welcome to Year 4!
Spring Term 2022
Happy New Year. During this term, our priorities are ensuring that the children are happy and confident in attending school. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school.
Following the Literacy and Numeracy framework set out by the Welsh Government, we are prioritising literacy and numeracy in every aspect of the curriculum. To ensure that we are responding to the requirements of the new curriculum for Wales, we will be teaching thematically in the afternoon.
Theme: 'Antur yr Aifft ' (Egyptian Explorer). As we returned to school after Christmas, a mummy had arrived in class, who could the mummy be? Our theme work will be completed through the medium of Welsh. Our tasks will focus on developing an understanding about Ancient Egypt and discovering who the mummy could be.
Maths: We will be completing activities and lessons based on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, shape and measure, time and money.
Language: Comic, Dialogue and Holiday Advert. All language work will be based on our theme, 'Antur yn yr Aifft'. Language work will be completed through the medium of English.
Science: Third Rock from the Sun
PSHE: Growth mindset, Circle Time and the Friends for Life Project.
Design and Technology / Art: Creative tasks will be completed in theme work during afternoon lessons.
PE: Dance and Gymnastics / Sports outside every Thursday.
Swimming will begin on the 3/2/22 - please bring swimming clothing every Thursday.
Thank you for your continued support!
