Welcome to Marie Curie Class!
Teacher: Miss R Davis
Teaching Assistant: Mrs A Cavanagh
We have had a fantastic Autumn term in Year 4 and are continuing to work extra hard in Spring 1 despite the current lockdown restrictions. Although, learning from home has displayed some difficulties, I want to say a big thank you for the support from all families who help with remote learning. You are contributing to your child’s progression and education! Thank You, Miss Davis
This Year our class is named after a very inspirational woman, called Marie Curie.
Marie Curie is a woman recognized throughout the world not only for her groundbreaking Nobel Prize-winning discoveries but also for having boldly broken many gender barriers during her lifetime. From September 2020 we will begin learning all about Marie Curie’s discoveries and her life as part of our whole school ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ topic.
Please check your class webpage, Seesaw and Twitter, regularly for pictures, videos and information regarding Year 4.
Reading in Year 4:
At Banks Road, reading is our whole school priority and it is important for children in Year 4 to be exposed to a variety of genres and words to promote reading development and understanding.
Each week children in Year 4 will complete one to one reading with an adult, shared reading and guided reading lessons. They also will be following Read to Write which helps children use all their acquired knowledge in Reading and apply it to their writing.
We want children to read for pleasure!
Homework: Please read with your child daily, encourage reading for pleasure and access Reading Plus regularly to help develop your child’s reading.
Read to Write
For the first part of our Read to Write unit this term, the Children will be writing their own Traditional Tale. For the second part of our unit, the children will be writing instructions on how to trap an animal.
Throughout this unit, the children will focus on:
-Separation of words with spaces
