Welcome back!

It's a new school year with a new teacher, Mr. Thompson, and his teaching assistant, the ever able Mrs. Roberts.

We have already been busy in Year 4, starting an English unit on Greek Mythology and a (semi-related) history unit about the Roman Empire and the conquest of Britain. In science we are studying sound for the Autumn term, and in PE we will be learning dance and invasion games. The children are starting their French lessons, doing Roman-related art, and e-safety in computing.
Here's a nice picture of two boys showing off their knowledge of Roman gods through the medium of dance. As you can see, they have Mars, the God of War, down pretty well.

Homework started this week, so remember to check you children's packs for their homework and reading books. They will have a spelling and times tables test every Thursday. We have a Reading Ladder for the kids to rise up if they can prove they've been reading to their parents, so make sure you sign off in their reading books so they can get proper credit. 
We've loved having the Year 4's in the last week and look forward to a great year.
