Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to Summer term in Year 4. We have lots of exciting things planned for this term!  Our topic is Our Local Area and we will be learning about how Durham (particularly Gilesgate) has changed over the last 200 years! This term we will be going swimming on a Tuesday afternoon so remember your swimming gear each week. Please keep your usual PE kit in school in case we do other sports activities during the term. Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be returned every Wednesday.

 

You can bring your reading book in on any day of the week and I will make sure it is changed that day - the more often you read, the quicker you will improve! You will also need to bring your water bottle into school everyday. 

 

I will share any important information on this page and will update our Class Dojo page as regularly as possible.

If you have any questions, please just ask.

Mr Grant :)
