Welcome to the Autumn term with Miss Powell and Mrs Garrett
This terms topic is Fame and Fairgrounds. We will be learning about landmarks in Nottingham, Robin Hood, Goose Fair and famous people. We have lots of fun and exciting trips and themed days including: a visit to St John's church for a Harvest experience, a trip to William Booth's birthplace museum, Goose Fair day which includes making hot dogs (yummy) and a trip to a mystery location in Nottingham.. Where could that be?
We are promoting the enjoyment of reading in Year 4 and have set up many reading challenges including: read for the stars, book bingo, book swaps and read theory. The children have a stimulating and creative book corner to relax in and share their favourite books with their friends.
We look forward to an exciting term ahead
Year Four's Reading challenge - Read for the stars
As an incentive for reading at home, we have introduced a class reading chart called 'Read for the stars'.
Every week we will count how many times your child has read at home (diary must be signed by an adult).We will do this every week throughout half term. The children will be in charged of moving their spaceship through the planets in the solar system. Their ultimate target is to reach the stars.
How can you help your child?
1. Encourage your child to read at home at least 5 times a week- read for enjoyment (favourite books, library book, comic, e-book etc).
2. Sign their diaries and make comments about their enjoyment, engagement, progress etc
We hope the children enjoy this challenge and most importantly their reading
