Our Learning in Year 4
In Birch class, we want our children to feel safe, happy and confident in all that they do. We aim to bring an engaging and creative curriculum, with a broad range of learning opportunities and challenges, to encourage them to have a positive attitude towards their learning . We want all children in Birch to love coming to school everyday and to want to become the best that they can be, reaching their full potential. We want the children to be inspired to become independent and co-operative learners with skills that they can continue to develop into the future. Every day is an opportunity to learn and develop at St Joseph’s, as we try to be the best that we can be. Not only do we believe in ourselves in Birch Class, we also believe in others, help one another, show kindness, friendship, love and encourage each other every day as we are all a part of the Birch Class family!
The Curriculum in Birch Class not only introduces new learning opportunities for the children but also builds on the knowledge, skills and attitudes taught in previous years to ensure that we are continually progressing in each area. We also want the children to grow in confidence both academically and socially throughout the year and through our creative curriculum, we ensure that the children learn a range of topics and grow their skills through those topics.
Our Topics this Year Include:
Autumn 1 – Ancient Egyptians
Autumn 2 - Rivers
Spring 1 - Anglo Saxons
Spring 2 - Changes in our Local Area - Ilkley
Summer 1 - Windrush
Summer 2 - Rainforests
Throughout the year we have planned lots of exciting trips and learning opportunities which tie in with our topics to extend and engage the children in their learning and ensure they have the #bestdaysoftheirlives, as a result inspiring writing, enthusiasm and a love for learning!
These exciting topics create a full coverage of the National Curriculum, as well as providing learning opportunities that will capture the creativity and imagination of our children. It is through these topics we endeavour to:
Believe in God, ourselves and others.
