Dream

Welcome to Year 4 – Dream Class

 

In Year Four, we dream BIG! We set our goals high and strive to achieve all that we can.

“Don’t be scared, dare to have fabulous plans. I encourage you to not be afraid to dream, to have great ideals, to be builders of hope.” Pope Francis.

 

Welcome back! There are twenty eight pupils in Dream Class this year, along with Mrs Gartside and myself, Mrs Whittaker.

This year, we will be finding out all about the achievements of the Ancient Egyptians and learn about the Pendle Witches in our history topics. We will explore the hills and mountains within Europe in our ‘Survival’ topic, learn about earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis in our ‘Angry Earth’ topic, and find out more about the land use within the local area in our geography fieldwork focus.

Using Maths No Problem, we will develop our mathematical skills and we will also be working hard on learning all the multiplication facts in preparation for the multiplication assessment at the end of year Four.

 

We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.

If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email on swhittaker@olsa.lancs.sch.uk

Mrs Gartside can be contacted vis her email: rgartside@olsa.lancs.sch.uk
