Welcome to Year 4! Myself, Miss Jackson and Mr Brown are very excited about the year ahead and we can't wait to get to know you all.
This term, our theme is Vikings and Anglo-Saxons and we have lots of exciting activities planned for you including pot making, designing jewellery and even some shield making.
In Maths during this term, we are looking at Roman Numerals, Place Value, the four operations and measuring so it's going to be a busy term and we have lots of resources to play with... I mean help us!
In English for the first half term, we are using a short film about an unknown warrior called Jotun to inspire description and diary writing.
Meet the Team!
This is my third year at Templars Academy and my 15th year working in education. After teaching in year 4 last year, I was very happy to be in Year 4 again this year. Outside school, as my children are both grown up, my husband and I have been visiting some new places as we love travelling both in this country and abroad. When I am at home I like sewing and making things, gardening and I like going swimming. I have a brother and a sister who are both older than me and I have a cat called Millie who is very noisy! I am very excited about the upcoming year and learning more about the children as time goes on.
This is, scarily enough, my first year at Templars Academy. I've joined the school as part of an apprenticeship alongside a handful of other great people. I'm currently 20 years old and quickly approaching 21 which you could say is pretty cool, but honestly it stands more as a monument to how old I really am. Which is not very. Thankfully. I love playing guitar and experimenting with all things creative and new, whether this be practical or theoretical. I have one younger brother, one older step-brother and 2 older twin step-sisters, one of who has Down's syndrome so I spend quite some time helping to care for her too and we get on really well. I've always wanted to become a teacher and taking my first steps here at Templars Academy is a big, big joy to me and I hope to give 100% of all my effort for the time that I'm here. So keep your fingers crossed for me.
There are many other opportunities to continue your learning outside the classroom. There are the half termly projects to choose from, including a free choice for me to learn a bit more about the things that interest you. While you work on your Timestable Rockstar Status in school, you can continue this at home to build up your coins to spend improving your avatar, as well as learning your timestables which will help your progress in maths so much - so it's a winner all round!
Each week, there will be new tasks to complete on Mymaths and Purple Mash as well as lots of games available on both that you can access anytime. Lastly, the really fun bit - reading. Reading at home, at least 3 times a week, gets you a raffle ticket for the end of term draw to win books to keep! Each 50 signatures in your homework diary will earn you a certificate too. Don't forget you can also quiz at home. All the logins are in your homework diary.
If you need any help or have any questions, please let me know.
PE this term will be on
