The Year 4 Team
We have a team of dedicated adults working with the children to support their learning. In addition to our class teachers, Mr Radburn and Miss Smith, our teaching assistant, Mrs Perry will also be supporting groups of children further to her classroom responsibilities.
PPA (Planning, Preparation & Assessment)
On Tuesday afternoon, the Year 4 teachers will be out of class on PPA time. Mrs Wright and Mr Wardle will share the responsibility of teaching Redwood Class and Sycamore respectively.
Our main topic this term is ‘Ciao Italia!’ We will be taking a virtual tour around Italy, learning about its landscape, people and culture, with a particular focus on the Campania region. Our studies will also examine volcanoes and earthquakes and their impact on the landscape and people.

Midlands Music Service Workshop - Volcanoes
The children in Redwood and Sycamore liked their visit from the Midlands Music Service, learning about Volcanoes. They enjoyed composing and performing small pieces of music to represent the different stages of a volcanic eruption.
Merry Christmas from Mr Radburn, Miss Smith, Mrs Perry and all of the children in Redwood and Sycamore classes. We hope you all have a fun filled festive season and the happiest of new years.
