Welcome to Year 4 at Atlantic Academy Portland!
Year 4A's teacher is Mrs Watson...Year 4B's teacher is Miss Swan. Miss Swan and Mrs Watson said they are very excited to work with their new classes and to get to know all the fantastic children in them.
Miss Gulliver and Miss Halcrow are the Year 4 Learning Support Assistants.
The topic for Term 1 in Year 4 is Belonging and the local area. We will be creating some super self-portraits and be undertaking some exciting learning about Portland and can't wait to show this off in their learning showcase at the end of term!
Linked to the topic of Belonging, Year 4 will be reading the hilarious book in English, 'There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom' by Louis Sachar. They will be using this unit of learning to create some wonderful descriptions, diaries and dilemma stories. They will also write from the character's perspectives.
In Maths, children will be recapping and extending their knowledge of place value and then will move onto addition. They will be working hard on learning their times tables too!
