Year 4


Welcome back!

We hope you’ve enjoyed your break and you’ve had time to rest, reset and refresh. We’re looking forward to an exciting new half term!

For this module, we are going to be going to be taking note of things that are all around us, in the real world. This module will definitely help us to make decisions, in what can be realistic situations and help us to become lifelong learners.

Have a read of the following poems and see if you can work out what our new module is all about.

I love to go swimming in a swimming pool,
I try my very best to obey every rule,
I always make sure an adult is with me,
I want to be safe as safe as can be.

When I go swimming, I have lots of fun,
But I don’t do tricks, or get too much sun,
A lifeguard is there to watch over me,
I want to be safe as safe as can be.


Stop, look, and listen, before you cross the street.
Use your eyes and use your ears, before you use your feet.

Look to your left, then look to your right and to your left once more.
You must be really careful, that's what rules are for!


I am a fireman dressed in red.
With my fire hat on my head.
I can drive the fire truck, fight fire too,
And help make things safe for you.


Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
And charging along like troops in a battle,
All through the meadows the horses and cattle:
All of the sights of the hill and the plain,
Fly as thick as driving rain;
And ever again, in the wink of an eye,
Painted stations whistle by …

Can you guess what our module will be about?


 So we can get our learning off to a quick start please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school everyday - take a look at our prospectus to double check what you need. Each item should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. PE kits will be sent home each week to be washed and returned on Monday.


Water bottles should be brought into school daily to ensure children are hydrated and should have a sports cap.


Learning Journals should also be in school everyday and new information about reading books, trips, letters and upcoming events will be added throughout the week. There is a section for adults at home to sign and leave a comment, once they have checked their child’s Learning Journal.
