Happy New Year!!

Welcome back to another busy and exciting term here at North Walkden Primary School. I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and that the children are ready and raring to go for the term ahead.

This term the children will be learning about 'Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest'. Within the unit, the children will learn about:

  • The location, climate, culture and geographical features of the country of Brazil
  • The features of a rainforest and statistics of the Amazon
  • The animals and people that live within the Amazon
  • Deforestation, and its effects on us, animals and the people that live there

They will be producing lots of cross curricular work linked to the Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest including, art, design technology, computing and writing.

PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and will be taught by an external provider. The focus this term for Year 4 will be fencing, a sporting first at North Walkden, and I am sure that the children will love developing the skills necessary to fence. With this in mind, please ensure that your child has their full kit with them in school at all times (kits to remain in school until half term), so that they can access lessons fully and reach their highest potential.

A full kit includes:

- White t-shirt

- Black/navy shorts

- Black pumps

At North Walkden we really value and welcome support from parents in their child’s education. It would be of great benefit if you could concentrate on the following tasks and activities.

  • Learning all times tables up to 12X12. It is so important that the children know their times tables as it helps them in many areas of maths.
  • Working on telling the time both analogue and digitally.
  • Helping your child to understand money-including counting totals, making totals and giving change.
  • Hearing your child read on a daily basis and encouraging them to read different types of materials.
  • Working with your child to learn their weekly spellings

This term will also host our second class assembly on Friday 2nd February. Further details of this will sent out closer to the time.

I think that is all for now! Please see Year 4's newsletter of work for Spring Term 1, which outlines the focuses in each area of learning in more detail for this half term.

Thank you for your continued support, 

Miss Bosnjak, Mrs Firth, Mrs Corless and Mrs Winterbottom
