Panther Class (Year 4)

Class teacher: Mr Brown
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Coleman
1:1 Teaching Assistant: Mrs Taylor

Dear parents,

Welcome back after the summer holidays. Myself and my new teaching assistants, Mrs Coleman and Mrs Taylor, all hope you had a peaceful time, whatever you did and wherever you went. We hope you’re as excited about the new school year as we are and can’t wait to get started with a new year full of exciting learning, opportunities and adventures.

Curriculum overview

Our main topic this half term is Ancient Egypt. This will link to several areas of the Y4 curriculum over the next few weeks, and will be a great opportunity for children to learn about this fascinating period of human history.

Here are some documents that you may find useful: a copy of the class timetable, half-term plan and a copy of our class newsletter.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning that you would like to discuss with me, please aim to come and speak to me either before 8.30 in the morning, or at the end of the school day. Between 8.30 and 8.45 every morning, all teaching staff at Old Buckenham have a meeting with their teaching assistants, which is a crucial opportunity to discuss learning for the day and to decide on strategies to support specific children. These meetings also happen in Year 3 and are important to make sure we are supporting children in the right ways. As far as you can, please avoid coming to see me during this time.

Thank you for your co-operation and support in your child’s learning.
