A warm welcome back to Westwood after the Christmas break! This is the platform we will use to share our amazing journey in 2020! We have a little change in our classroom as we welcome Miss. Clubb to #Team6. Miss. Clubb will be working alongside Mr. Powell and the children this year. 

We have lots of amazing things to look forward to this term, here is a little teaser to what is happening in our new pupil-lead topic of FAMOUS PEOPLE FROM THE PAST! 

English- First, we will be using the genre of ‘instructional writing’, looking at lots of different instructional texts and writing our own. We will then move on to look at biographies which we will link to our new Topic! 

Maths- We will be developing our knowledge and understanding of multiplication and division. We will then move on to money, time and fractions. We will also have a times table test every Friday ➕➖➗✖️

Welsh- We will recap on some personal language, questions and answers as well as traveling on the Pod Antur Cymraeg with Dyfs and Izzy! 🚀

Science- Earth and Space

Topic- Tudors & Stuarts. We will begin by looking at the end of King Henry VIII's reign and what happened after. We will then move on to look at the reign of Elizabeth I and then move into the Stuart era.

RE- Lessons will have a central focus on the life of Jesus.

Music- Space music linked to the planets in our solar system! We will use the iPad app Garage Band during this term.

ICT- Using our presentation skills within Microsoft Office programmes and research skills across the curriculum.  We will be using several different applications on the iPad, including various websites, Google Classroom, Seesaw, Chatter Pix, Green-Screening, iMovie and Pic Collage, Minecraft for Education and much more! We will also be using the HWB and using our email accounts- try practising signing in and out at home when you can! 😁👍🏻

PE/ Health & Wellbeing- PE lessons will be every Tuesday afternoon. Please remember your PE Kit!

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

School reading books will be sent out in the coming weeks and it is very important that you read at home at least 3 times a week. Ask an adult to listen to you read and record what has been read in your reading record. Children who read 3 or more times a week will get their ‘Bonus Break’ on a Friday 😀 If you want to read 5 times each week at home you will earn yourself a ‘Dip in the Box’ (a box which if full of goodies! From school equipment, sweets and toys!) 📚

Spelling lists will be sent out on a Monday and we will complete a weekly spelling test every Friday. A LITTLE CHANGE THIS TERM- with the aim of reducing the use of school resources, each weekly spelling list will be uploaded to the children's Seesaw account. If you are unable to access Seesaw outside of school hours, then please ask.

We look forward to sharing our Year 4 journey with you! smiley

What's Being Said?

"I never thought that Westwood was so large inside! From the road, it seems so small. What a wonderful use of space. The school has changed so much over the years!" - recent visitor to school
