Welcome to Year 4.
Road Trip USA!
This is our topic for the Summer term. We will be exploring different states and finding out about famous landmarks across the country. Also we will explore the history of native Americans.
Our current class challenge is to name as many of the 50 states as possible from memory.
On Thursday 18th May, Year 4 will be spending the day at Swindon Academy and taking part in some mini music and drama workshops.
Below are the lyrics and music for the songs that we have been asked to practice for the day. I will send out a letter at the beginning of next week with more details.
Well done to Ebonie, Cristiana and Jamie who are currently in the lead for reading the most number of nights in Year 4. They have read over 200 nights each, which is fantastic!

In Year 4 we have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We had a brilliant theatre company come in to visit us and performed a play about a missing amulet from a museum.

See below for photos of our Egyptian dress up day.
Tuesdays are our PE day. PE kit should consist of a plain blue or white t-shirt, trainers and blue or black jogging bottoms or shorts.
Tuck is available every day. It is 30p per item and a maximum of 2 items are allowed to be purchased each day.
Your child should be reading as much as possible at home. If they can read for at least 10 minutes every evening and once over the weekend it will really help improve their reading. Certificates will be awarded when they reach the milestones for number of nights read.
