Welcome to Kingsbury Class (Year 4)
Teacher: Mrs Eleanor Taylor
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Stirling & Mrs Elkins
Bath Spa Teacher: Miss Harris
Inevitably, children will be absent from school from time to time because either they, or a family member, are self-isolating with Coronavirus symptoms, or because a family member has been contacted by the Test and Trace system. In these cases, it is expected that children continue with their learning while at home. Of course, children will not need to do school work when feeling unwell.
Work will now be set via Google Classroom. Your child has their login details stuck in their home learning journal.
Please also continue to read daily. practice times tables and use Spelling Shed to learn weekly spellings. Remember that children will not be able to focus for long periods of time as they do in school so frequent breaks may be necessary. As always, please get in touch with the school for support if needed.

Kingsbury Class is taught by Mrs Taylor, supported by Mrs Stirling and Mrs Elkins. We are lucky to be joined by Mrs Blake and Mrs Bartlett on a Tuesday afternoon, teaching RE and Music. Miss Harris, a Bath Spa Teacher, will be with us until Spring half term.
What to expect this term.
During the Spring Term, we will be learning about The Anglo-Saxons. During this exciting topic, we will write Hero Myths based on the epic poem 'Beowulf' and Quest Stories based on the Legends of King Arthur. We will use a variety of sources to explore Anglo-Saxon life, religion and culture.
In Science, we will be learning about States of Matter. We will explore the properties of solids, liquids and gases and investigate how to change the state of materials. We will also learn all about the Water Cycle and demonstrate our understanding by writing an explanation text.
In Year 4, we spend lots of time learning our times tables to ensure that we know them all fluently up to 12x12. Times tables are so important as they help us solve more complex Maths problems. There is a statutory test to check that children know their times tables during Year 4. More details can be found here. There are lots of brilliant websites you can use to help your children to practice their times tables at home. Here are just a few we use in school:
Home Learning will now be set on Google Classroom. More details will follow after half term.
As in previous year groups, children will be expected to read regularly. We will endeavor to listen to every child as least once week in school, but we expect children to be reading daily at home.
PE will take place on a Thursday and Friday. On these days, full PE kit should be worn to school, including trainers and a warm sweatshirt as we will aim to be outside as often as possible.
An important experience in Year 4 is our trip to Leeson House. This year, this will take place on the 8th and 9th July. More details to follow in the Spring Term!
