Welcome to Doves!
Welcome to our class page.
My name is Miss Uzzell and I am so excited to continue to work with you this year and support you on your journey through Year 4!
Our topic this term is Ancient Greece! We will be learning about the ancient Greek civilisation, exploring Greek life, their achievements and their influence on the western world. In Science, we will be learning all about Electricity.
Here you will find important information regarding our Year 4 curriculum as well keys dates regarding PE days.
Reading at home
Reading is an essential skill that children use throughout their learning. Please ensure that your child/ren are reading for 10-15 minutes everyday at home. This can be their coloured band book, OTTER book or any other book they have at home. Please then ensure that their reading record is filled in with the date, name of book, comment on your child/ren's reading and sign.
This term our PE units will be gymnastics and ball games.
Our PE days will be Mondays and Wednesdays.
Children need to ensure their PE kits are in school on these days.
Please ensure that they are wearing white tops, black/navy shorts, socks, trainers or plimsolls. In colder weather, the children will be able to wear a plain black or navy tracksuit. As usual, long hair needs to be tied back and earrings removed before coming to school.
