A Happy New Year and welcome back to all of Laughton class. I hope everyone had fantastic rest and are fully recharged after the festive season. A massive thanks to all and everyone who was kind enough to have a word with Santa and bring me a gift over Christmas.
2019 has a lot in store for year 4. Our topic for this half term is 'A North American Road Trip.' This will involve learning all about the geography of North America and the World. Moreover, one stop off on our adventure will be looking at the history of North America by looking at Slavery.
Maths for this half term will be exploring discrete data. We will be learning all about Pictograms, Bar Charts and Time Graphs. Also, lets ensure year 4 have their dancing shoes on as in P.E. this half term we will be looking at different aspects of dance starting with Salsa.
Moving forward, P.E. will be on a Wednesday and homework will be set on a Friday for the following Friday.
I am thoroughly looking forward to a fantastic start to the year!
