Class Teacher – Miss M Saville
Learning Support Assistant – Miss S McEnhill
Swimming - Monday morning
PE - Tuesday
I am Miss Saville, this is my second year working at Silkmore in year 4 and I am looking forward to all the exciting learning that will take place this year. When I was younger, I swam for Shropshire, played water polo and volleyball and also competed at National level in synchronised swimming. I love anything Disney or Harry Potter related which shows through my countless trips to Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World in Florida – it’s my happy place! When I am not in Disney, you will probably find me at the theatre… I love watching shows all over the country with my mum.
Autumn 1 Learning
Our first mini-mission this year is Augustus and his Smile, a story of a tiger who journeys through the jungle, the desert, the arctic and the ocean to find his smile. We will be completing some art work to accompany our own retelling of the story which will include lots of figurative language techniques that we will practice in class.
Our first maths unit of work will be surrounding place value. The key skills that we learn here is the base of our maths knowledge and underpins almost everything in maths. This learning will
therefore be recapped over the year throughout the different units that we will cover.
Reading and Spelling
Year 4 will take part in reading and spelling for 20 minutes each day. Their spellings will be written in their home school diaries to practice at home. We appreciate all the support you will give them to help practice at home in preparation for their tests. Reading books are needed in school every day so there is every opportunity to develop your children's reading skills.
Year 4 go swimming every Monday morning so please ensure they have the correct kit in school for this.
PE sessions are on a Tuesday afternoon and may be completed outside so tracksuits and trainers are advised. Earrings must not be worn for swimming or PE.
Music is delivered to Year 4 by 'Rock It' Music on a Tuesday.
