Welcome to Swan Class
Welcome to Swan Class. We are a happy and friendly class of 29 year 4 children, who have a love of life and learning. Our teacher is Miss Bugg and our excellent teaching assistant Mrs Page. We are confident, curious and creative people who show care and consideration for all. We value being part of the school community and work collaboratively together. In our class we focus on building our knowledge and skills to become independent learners and we always try our best at everything we do. We also enjoy exploring new topics, taking on new challenges and going on new adventures.
What are we learning about this term?
This term we are learning about the invaders and settlers of Britain. We start our learning off with the Anglo-Saxons. We will learn about how they impacted our local area and research place names to find any Anglo-Saxon influences which have stuck around! We will research about the amazing finds at Sutton Hoo and create replica artefacts in Art and Design to showcase in our virtual museum - we are hoping to create QR codes in computing for this event! After half term we will move on the Vikings. We will find out about their famous adventures across the sea and how they raided Britain of precious materials and resources. In English, we will be writing some adventure stories based on the book 'Arthur and the Golden Rope'. We will also be looking at Beowulf, The Dragon's Hoard and How to Train a Dragon. In Maths, we will be focusing on Multiplication and Division and using our amazing problem solving and reasoning skills to help us solve some tricky questions!
I really enjoy PE at school because I love sports. We get to use the football goals and the adventure playground during break and lunch times. This year, I'm looking forward to not being the youngest in the school anymore because I'm now a Year 4! In class, I'm looking forward to learning about some more history! I really love maths and I enjoy English.
English is my favourite subject because I like writing. I enjoy learning about new punctuation and today we even wrote a sentence using a colon! A colon can be used at the start of a list! I'm looking forward to learning new things and also enrichment! Enrichment is on a Friday afternoon where we get to choose which fun activities we would like to do. If you get to 'Oustanding' on our behaviour chart you can pick your activity first!
I enjoy maths most at school! This is because I like addition and solving problems! I'm not afraid to make mistakes because everybody will make a mistake one day and they help our brains grow bigger. I'm looking forward to learning even more about maths this year! I feel safe and happy in school because all the adults will always help me!
