Welcome to Class 9 Croeso i Ddosbarth 9
Tymor yr Hydref / Autumn Term
We are excited to welcome you back to school at the start of this term. We are looking forward to getting to know you all and have lots of exciting things planned.
We will start the year with a topic called 'Fy Milltir Sgwar'. This will include thinking and learning about our local area - past and present, identifying problems and ways to look after our local environment. We will carry out a variety of writing tasks linked to this topic. We are hopeful that we will be able to take part in a number of local visits (as long as restrictions allow), including a visit to the Redrow Nature Reserve, taking a walk along the heritage trail and a visit to Buckley Museum. As part of the topic we will also explore the idea of belonging.
PE lessons are on Mondays and /or Wednesdays. Children will need to attend school in their Mountain Lane PE kit on these days. Remember this should include jogging bottoms in case of colder weather, as all PE sessions will take place outdoors.
If children wear earrings, please ensure that they are removed or taped up on these days.
Year 4 are timetabled for the forest on Tuesday mornings. You will be informed when these sessions will take place. On these days the children should come in to school dressed in suitable, warm clothing and waterproof coat. They should also bring a change of footwear e.g. wellies / walking boots.
Homework and reading
This year, children in Year 4 will bring a reading book home on a weekly basis. During the first few weeks, children's reading will be re-assessed and a suitable book will be issued accordingly. These will be distributed by the start of October.
On a weekly basis the children will be having spelling lessons. Some of the children will be bringing a list of spellings home to learn. They will be tested on them in their sessions in school.
We look froward to getting to know the children and having a fun term!
