Welcome to Eagles Class!
Eagles is our year 4 class, taught by Mrs Catchpole
We enjoy a creative approach to the curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. We also link the curriculum to outdoor learning and the children will experience opportunities to learn outside the classroom. We also link the curriculum to outdoor learning and the children will experience opportunities to learn outside the classroom on a regular basis, alongside timetabled Forest School sessions.
In Eagles class children continue to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to challenge themselves across the curriculum.
The children learn through a range of high quality classroom based activities and a range of practical tasks which caters for all learning styles. We link our learning objectives to our termly themes and the children immerse themselves in their learning.
Our Autumn topic is Romans, and is our history based topic. We will also practise a variety of art techniques and skills.

Parents: I would like to welcome you all and signpost you to the parents update page on the website. Here you will find some documents and resources to support both you and your child’s mental health and support anxieties you may experience during these transition times. There are also some social stories for children to help explain the coronavirus and the impact on school. I will be adding more as I source them so please keep an eye out!
I hope you find these helpful.
Important information for Year 4:
Learning logs are given out on a Friday and need to come back into school by the following Wednesday. These will contain a variety of work each week linked to the learning in class. There will be English, Maths and Science plus occasional topic based learning activities.
Spellings and Times tables are given out on Friday and must be returned the following Thursday in order to organise new ones for next week. It is important that your child accesses the online learning, including TT Rockstars and Purple Mash, in order to practice their times tables. This needs to be as much as possible. There is a statutory assessment on the multiplication tables in June which all Year 4 pupils will take part in.
Forest School sessions take place on a Monday afternoon – please make sure children have wellington boots, waterproofs and a warm coat. These are part of the everyday school uniform and may be needed for additional outdoor learning sessions at any time, so please make sure your child is fully equipped in school.
Children have PE on a Tuesday afternoon – please make sure children have the correct PE kit in schools at all times.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to welcoming all the pupils in September!
