Yew Class Page
Welcome to Yew Class! We are a bunch of 31 hard-working Year 4 children. Our teacher is Miss Butler and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hutchinson. We also have our lovely helper, Mrs Thompson, who is training to be a teaching assistant.
This term our topic has been WW2 and we recently hosted an exciting WW2 Learning Exhibition to share our wonderful topic work and homework projects with parents and other classes. Our English work was inspired by our class book War Horse and included a narrative story in the role of a horse, horse charity adverts, evacuee letters home and poetry inspired by Christina Rossetti's Colour Poem. With some expert advice from Mrs Johnson, we also produced a 'Make Do and Mend' patchwork quilt for our Design and Technology project. Please take a look through our Exhibition pictures to see our topic work.
Thank you to all of those who supported our event. Myself, Mrs Jensen, Mrs Ware and the Year 3/4 children were all extremely proud of their achievements and the children thoroughly enjoyed showing off their excellent work.
What topic will we be exploring next?
After the Easter Holidays, we will be exploring the question 'Why settle here?' which will be a Geography and History based topic looking at the types of settlements in Great Britain. We will explore in depth the physical and human geography of Great Britain to understand why people settled here.
This term our P.E. topics are Gymnastics (indoor) and Tag Rugby (outdoor.) Please make sure children have their full P.E. kits in school on Wednesdays and Thursdays for our P.E. lessons.
It is expected that children read at least three times a week at home and practice their maths skills on IXL to consolidate their learning in class.
Children will also be set a topic based project each half term to engage them with our new topic and inspire them to learn more outside of the classroom.
