Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

   

Miss Yapp - class teacher

Mrs Tull - teaching assistant

 

This term we have lots to look forward to! Our Topic this term is Knights and Castles.   English and Topic will be closely linked this term to get the best writing from the children.  

 

Autumn term - Knights and Castles. 

 

 

 

 

Christian Values

The value for this term is trust.

Please can children have a full PE kit in school everyday.  (t shirt, joggers/shorts, trainers) thank you. 

 

Please encourage your children to hand in their Partnership Books.

 

Please can children remember to have water bottles in school! 

 

What Year 4 will be covering this week: 11th November 2019.

Reading for Pleasure:

 

Reading is an important skill and can bring us lots of enjoyment. At Knowl Hill CE Academy we promote reading and want to develop a love of reading for all of our pupils. To encourage this, we award a termly reading certificate to those children who read at least 4 x a week over a 10 week period. Please record any reading in the Partnership book. Any children that have been listened to during this period will be asked for their Parent Partnership book - pleasure ensure these are in school daily.

 

 

 

Eisteddfod

 

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.

The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)

Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices. 

Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.

The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!

Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you. 

Here are some websites linked to poetry.  Discuss what they feel the poem means, what they think the author's intended impact on the reader is, how it differs from another poem and whether or not they like the poem.
