We had a fantastic day exploring Walton-on-the-Naze for our zones of the world topic. We spent the day on the beaches looking at fossils, co-ordinates and identifying physical and human features. We also made some really smelly potions from things we could find hiding around the beach!
We all had a wonderful day!

Welcome to Year 4
I am Miss Seaman the class teacher and I would like to be able to tell you about the fantastic activities and learning we will be engaging with throughout this year. We will also be working with Miss Ford and Miss O'Connell who will be supporting us throughout our learning journey. We will be working with a cross curricular approach to ensure our literacy and mathematics skills are being applied widely and frequently.
I am Mrs Donegan the class teacher and I would like to introduce the team working in the Shark Class this year. We have Mrs Claydon, Mrs Baker, Mrs Kadlec and Mrs Taylor. We are focused on ensuring our learning is active and fun as we move through our topics this year.
We really want our learning to connect with those experiences the children have at home and therefore would ask you to focus on the following:
Reading daily - this could be magazines, books, newspapers, comics or the internet (with parental support).
Handwriting - we are focusing on handwriting and presentation of our work ensuring that we are taking pride in the writing. This will be supported with a weekly handwriting sheet sent home in homework folders.
Times Tables - the learning of times tables is important as it really does underpin so much of our maths work and a daily session of answering questions, whether that is during the walk to school or at the meal table would benefit your child greatly.
Homework - as well as the above home expectations, we send home half termly creative homework tasks. We ask for a piece to be brought in every Friday.
PE kits - PE kits need to be in school everyday. The PE kits should consist of a plain t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls. In the winter we recommend that your child has a pair of longer sport trousers. Please ensure your child is not wearing earrings on PE days.
You will be notified when your child will be taking part in swimming.
If you have any questions in relation to your child please feel free to speak to the office to arrange a meeting.
