Welcome back to another exciting term here at North Walkden - and a very busy term it will be too, as it is the run up to Christmas! There will be lots of fun and exciting activities, trips and celebrations happening throughout this term, and I am really looking forward to everything we have planned for the children in the coming weeks.

This term the children will be continuing to learn about 'The Roman Empire', focussing in more detail on the Romans' 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. 

In the weeks leading up to Christmas we will be creating lots of Christmas craft, including cards, calendars and tree decorations. How exciting!!

This half term will also host our first enrichment trip, where we will be teaming up with Year 3, and visiting Paradise Island Adventure Golf in the Trafford Centre. This will be a brilliant, fun activity for the children to take part in and an experience we know the children will love! The trip will take place on Friday 10th November, within school hours, so that the children can be collected at the normal finishing time - 3:20pm. A letter will be sent out this week, asking for permission for your child to attend the trip.

PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and will be taught by an external provider. The focus this term for Year 4 will be gymnastics, so the children will not need their trainers or jogging bottoms, as this will be taught inside. 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

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.

This term will also host our first Parents Evening: Wednesday 22nd November from 3:30pm - details of this will be given out nearer to the time.

In the weeks leadeing up to Christmas, there will be lots of exciting events, trips and celebrations, so a list of these key dates will be sent out closer to the time. 

I think that is all for now! Please see Year 4's newsletter of work for Autumn Term 2, 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
