Welcome back to another busy and exciting term here at North Walkden Primary School. I hope you have had a lovely, sunny break and that the children are well rested for their last term in Year 4 - what a busy, exciting term it is!

This term the children will be learning all about the 'Ancient Greeks'. Within the topic, the children will learn about:

-Greece (location, climate, physical/human features) and where the Ancient Greek Civilisation fits into a chronological framework

-Identify and explore features of the Ancient Greek Civilsation, e.g. lifestyle, states, democracy, etc

-Explore the beliefs of the Greeks

-Understand and describe the impacts of the Ancient Greek Civilisation on the modern world

This a very interesting topic, which will be embedded and used a stimulus within other areas of the curriculum this half term:

-Art - Greek Theatre Masks/Sketching/Pottery, etc

-English - Greek Myths - listening and responding to a range of myths/re-writing their own myth

This half term the children will be returning back to PE as usual in school. This will be taught by our specialist PE teacher Mr Tierney. Lessons will take place every Friday afternoon, so make sure your child has their full kit with them at all times, so that they can reach their full potential within lessons. This half term's focus will be 'striking and fielding' games.

A full kit consists of:

-A white t-shirt

-Navy blue shorts

-Black pumps

-Trainers (outdoor activities)

This term is also host to our annual summer trip to Llandudno! The trip will be taking place on Tuesday 3rd July and is a fantastic day out, where the children will explore the seaside town of Llandudno, and compare some of its physical and human features to those of Walkden. I will send out a more detailed letter closer to the time of the trip, outlining more imporatnt information about the day. For the time being, please see the uploaded letter for details of prices and the consent which will need to be given. Thank you!

I think that is all for now! Please see Year 4's newsletter of work for Summer Term 2, which outlines the focuses in each area of learning in more detail for this half term.

Thank you for your continued support, 

Miss Bosnjak, Mrs Firth, Mrs Corless and Mrs Winterbottom
