Welcome back to another busy and exciting term here at North Walkden Primary School. I hope you have had a lovely Easter break and that the children are well rested for another term full of learning and exciting activities!

This term the children will be learning about the historical disaster of the Titanic. Within the topic, the children will learn about:

-Life in 1912 (the year Titanic first set sail and sank

-The main features of the ship and the route it took

-The passengers on board and the differing classes (entertainment and accomodation)

- Similarities and differences between Titanic and modern cruise ships

- Why Titanic sank and the events and consequences of the sinking

This a fantastic topic with so much interesting information, facts and theories surrounding it, and a topic which the children throughly enjoy each year. We will be using the James Cameron film as stimulus for our writing, drama, topic and art work, and this always raises great opportunities to discuss feelings, emotions, relationships and other aspects of personal and social development. 

This half term the children will be continuing to go swimming every Monday as their PE focus. Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit them each Monday. Boys must wear a pair of swimming trunks (not shorts) and girls must wear a one piece swimming costume; each child requires a cap to be worn in the swimming pool - the swimming instructors are very strict on this being adhered to. Earrings and jewellery must not be worn (no studs at all) and hair must be tied up. If goggles are to be worn, written permission is required. Please ensure your child has a towel also.

If there is any reason why your child cannot partake in a swimming lesson, please let me know in writing. Learning to swim is a skill for life and something which can be enjoyed at any age. Furthermore, swimming is statutory and is part of the National Curriculum.

Although swimming is our main focus for PE this half term. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school at all times, as lessons will stop half way through the half term (I will let you know exact dates nearer the time).

I think that is all for now! Please see Year 4's newsletter of work for Summer Term 1, 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
