Year 4 Parrots


January 2020

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Happy New Year!


Our topic this term is North & South.  For History, we will be learning about Polar Explorers, including Ernest Shackleton. Our Science topics are Electricity and States of Matter. In Geography we will be learning about the North & South Poles, where are they located in the world and comparing these areas to Britain and our local area. We will also be learning about the amazing animals who live at the poles.


We will be visiting Byfleet Public Library during the first half term. This is to encourage the use of the Byfleet Public Library by local families, as well as to understand how libraries work and the history of the local area.


Homework will continue as in Autumn Term with weekly spellings stuck into the reading record books and Maths and English homework stuck in the homework books. Please return homework on Tuesdays. It will be given out on Thursdays. Spelling tests will take place on Fridays.


Please remember we advise your child to bring in healthy snacks, a named water bottle and named clothing.


Please check your child’s pencil case in case it needs restocking. Their pencil case should include the following items and MUST be named:

HB writing pencils

Colouring pencils


Glue stick

15cm ruler


If you have any questions in the meantime, please get in touch. Thank you for your continued support in Year 4.


Kind regards,

Miss K Yuen
