About Class 4
Welcome to Year 4.
Mrs Wood, Mrs Medlin, and Mrs Stevens warmly welcome you into Class 4.
As a class team, we are always supporting each other to strive to ‘Be the best we can be’. In year 4 all kinds of exciting learning takes place, covering subjects such as Anglo- Saxons and Vikings, alongside digestion and electricity. Class 4 always learn about Cornwall and mining, as well as the local heritage of our lovely village Mylor Bridge. Not forgetting maths- where Mrs Wood loves to focus on times tables, often to a song and a dance! English continues to build on learning from year 3. Examples of what the children will be writing are diaries, defeating a monster stories, adventure stories and persuasive writing about the rainforest.
In year 4 we pride ourselves on working alongside our community to support our learning. We are very lucky to be located in a beautiful village. Class 4 works closely with the community garden, the local history group and we are often seen on the playing fields for our physical activities. One of the trips we always look forward to, is the St Piran’s day parade in March. Everyone wears colours of the St Piran's flag and we dance around Falmouth with a vengeance!
What to expect in Year 4
Year 4 is a special year group where the children continue to take more control of their own learning and continue to develop Resilience, resourcefulness, Relationships and Reflection skills.
We provide opportunities for children to develop their own skills but, more importantly, there is the chance for children to develop their collaborative skills to become strong team members who are able to support each other in their learning .
Please encourage your child to read aloud to an adult, as well as start to read independently. Your child will bring home reading books, or they can read books you have at home.
Children should be encouraged to talk to adults about the books they are reading; discuss reading choices and features of the book. It is also great to read books by the same author and compare the similarities and differences.
