Mr Taylor Mrs Gaddes
Teacher Teaching Assistant
A very warm welcome to Elder,
This year we will undertake the curriculum in a fun and stimulating way, providing opportunities for all children to excel in an inclusive and safe environment. We will look at the world around us and try to make every topic we cover an adventure and a journey.
Topic – Why Do We Visit North Wales?
As summer is finally upon us, we are going to begin our localities study where we will compare our hometown of Bury with the seaside town of Llandudno. We hope to spend some time within the area, studying what makes Bury unique and why it has become a successful market town. We will then compare what we have found out to Llandudno and why the North Wales town has become such a popular holiday destination. We will be visiting Llandudno to experience the town first hand and hopefully enjoying the sunny weather.
Alongside our topic we will be looking at time in maths using both 12 and 24 hour digital clocks as well as analogue time.
P.E. Kits and Swimming
Please could you ensure that your child has an indoor and an outdoor PE kit in school. This should include a white T-shirt, black or white shorts, pumps and trainers and a tracksuit for colder days.
All year 4s will be continuing their swimming lessons on Fridays. These sessions will continue until July, enabling the children to have 21 free swimming lessons. We would be grateful if you made sure that your child has a swimming kit with them every Friday until further notice. They will need to bring a towel, a sensible swimming costume, goggles and a hairbrush if required. Long hair should be tied up and if for any reason your child is not able to participate, please could you provide a letter. The children may also achieve swimming awards, notification will be sent home is they achieve this.
