John Donne Primary School

Green 4

Here is the information you will need for the first half of the Summer Term in Year 4.

Our Year 4 team is:
Ms De Carvalho (G4), Mr Dearlove (R4), Ms McGill (B4), Miss Chrysanthou (TA), Miss Taylor (HLTA), Mr Ash (TA) 

Our topic is:
Dealing with Dilemmas, and we will be looking at the question, “What is the best way to deal with challenges?”

We will be looking at challenges in different context. These will include emotional challenges faced by characters from different stories, personal challenges and problem solving across the curriculum.

We will be using the book Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne.

Besson Street Gardens: Each class will be visiting Besson Street Gardens every 3rd Wednesday morning where they will be learning about the local environment.

Children will have an Independent learning book with a guided list of ideas about our topic. These are just ideas and children are free to explore the topic in other interesting and exciting ways should they choose.

PE kits:
Red 4 – PE kits on Friday
Green 4 – PE kits on Tuesday. Bring trainers in for marathon training. Blue 4 – PE kits on Thursday. Bring trainers in for marathon training.

Other information:
Parents are reminded that school starts at 8:45am. It is really important they are not missing out on any learning so please make sure they are in on time.


Many thanks,

The Year 4 Team.
