Deputy Head Teacher and Year 4 Teacher

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 4.  I hope that all of you have had a wonderful summer break and that you managed to see at least some sunshine over the past few weeks! I am looking forward to working with you all over the coming terms as we have have lots of exciting things planned for us to do. 

We start off this term learning all about rainforests and will be making some comparisons to the types of woodlands and forests that we find in the U.K.  There is going to be a visit quite soon into the term to our local forest in Macclesfield where we will be using our geographical skills in order to undertake some field work. The Amazon rainforest has been in the news quite a lot recently. I wonder if you have been able to follow what has been happening?  I'm sure that the weekly newspaper that is delivered to Y4 will be keeping us fully informed.

Our science work is all linked to our 'Rainforest topic' too and we will be learning all about plants, adaptation, classification and food chains. There will also be a link to our art and design/ technology work.  We started to look at our focus artist, Henri Rousseau, when you came on your transition day in the summer term and we shall be designing and making rain forest creatures too. Even our English work will have some links to our topic when we learn how to write travel brochures and newspaper reports as well as re-casting a famous fable with rainforest characters. 

So much to learn about and discover.  I'm really excited to begin our learning journey together.  I hope that you are too.  I wonder what you'll find out that you didn't know before and what will be your favourite part of this topic?  I wonder what your best achievement will be and what you end up being most proud of?  Whatever the answers to these questions are, I know that we'll be having enormous fun as a class. Hold on tight... off we go!!!
