Welcome to Year 4! I hope you have had a fantastic summer break and are ready and raring to go for another academic year at North Walkden! I want to express how much I am looking forward to the forthcoming year; working with your children and closely alongside yourselves, to help them to achieve their very best! It will be a year full of exciting learning opportunities, and fun-filled activities and trips which I know your children will enjoy. 

The teaching assistants that will be supporting in Year 4 this year will be Mrs Firth, Mrs Corless and Mrs Winterbottom - how lucky we are!

This term the children will be learning all about 'The Roman Empire'. Throughout the term they will learn about the Roman Empire and the power of its army, the beliefs of the Romans, their successful invasions and how they have impacted on Britain today. They will be producing lots of cross curricular work linked to the Romans including, art, design technology and writing. This will be a great topic to start the year with and any extra research the children can do at home will definitely benefit them in the classroom.

This half term will also host our first class assembly on Friday 13th October - details of the assembly will be outlined nearer to the time. 

PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and will be taught by an external provider. Please ensure that your child has their full kit with them in school at all times (kits to remain in school until half term). 

A full kit includes:

- White t-shirt

- Black/navy shorts

- Black pumps

(Trainers/jogging bottoms for outdoor winter lessons)

At North Walkden we really value and welcome support from parents in their child’s education. It would be of great benefit if you could concentrate on the following tasks and activities.

  • Learning all times tables up to 12X12. It is so important that the children know their times tables as it helps them in many areas of maths.
  • Working on telling the time both analogue and digitally.
  • Helping your child to understand money-including counting totals, making totals and giving change.
  • Hearing your child read on a daily basis and encouraging them to read different types of materials.

To look around the classroom and to discuss your child's new class, there will be a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Wednesday 13th September, straight after school at 3.30pm. At this meeting I will be able to explain more about the school day and our expectations, and to answer any queries that you may have. I look forward to seeing you then!

I think that is all for now! Please see Year 4's newsletter of work for Autumn Term 1, which outlines the focuses in each area of learning for this half term.

Thank you for your continued support, 

Miss Bosnjak, Mrs Firth, Mrs Corless and Mrs Winterbottom
