Welcome!
 
From all Y4 teachers and TAs we wish you a very warm welcome back to school and into Y4.
 
This learning blog provides a central area to catch up with the fantastic learning experiences the children will be having over the year.
 
Look out for photos, videos and home learning links to support your child's learning.
 

We have been working hard over the summer to get school ready and we cannot wait to see you all again and get going on an exciting learning journey. 

 

This webpage will be used as a space to celebrate pupil's achievements and to provide information, where needed, to parents and carers.

 

We will be starting the year with a mini theme all about who we are. We will be looking into our heritage, the idea of equality and the strength community has when it is diverse.

 

Parents and carers, if you need to contact your child's teacher the best way to do so is to use the following email: Y4@huntersbar-jun.sheffield.sch.uk

Please put your child's class and name in the subject line and we will try and get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Here's to a successful year.

 

 
Mr. Beauchamp, Mrs. Bridges, Mrs. Amin, Mrs. Wales, Mrs Schmidt, Mr. Hewson and Mrs. Booth!

Theme unit 1
 
As part of our whole school theme unit titled Who we are, the Y4s will be investigating and exploring the following central idea:
 
Our school community is made strong by learning about
diversity and recognising that people bring different perspectives, ideas, knowledge and cultures.
 
Look out for some wonderful pieces of artwork and poetry showcasing the pupil's understanding of the themes diversity, equality and peace.
 
Please look at the key knowledge the children need to know by the end of the two week unit. 
Fun testing on these words, ideas and facts at home and in school will help children remember them in the future and allow them to think in different ways.
