Year 4: Goldfinches

Welcome to Goldfinches Class

Welcome back!  We hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas holiday and are looking forward to a new term full of hard work, adventure and exciting topics. In history, we are using 'the Arts' to give us an insight into life during the time of the Anglo-Saxons. In Science, we are looking at Plants and animals, including humans. In Art, we are developing our drawing, painting and printing skills, using the Anglo-Saxon artwork as a stimulus. We will also be looking at a variety of artists throughout the term, starting with Piet Mondrian. In PE, we are doing gymnastics and tri-golf. We will also begin swimming after the half-term. In PSHE, we are looking at conflict resolution.


Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera.


As usual we are looking forward to working together in partnership with parents, so if you have some spare time this term or some expertise on one of our topics, please come and join us – please speak with me to arrange a mutually convenient time.


If you have any questions or queries regarding school issues then please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your support.

Please make sure your child brings their P.E kits into school on a Monday and they will bring it home to be washed on a Friday. If your child has earrings please remember that they must be removed. Long hair should also be tied back. Games lessons will take place outside whenever possible. Please provide suitable clothing for this lesson, i.e. trainers, tracksuit bottoms (or equivalent), spare socks and a warm top. We will be taking part in the Daily Mile and we will be running for 15 minutes 3x a week—it is important that your child has a spare pair of socks!
