Year 4 Mars
Welcome to Mars!
I am Miss. Smith, the class teacher. I absolutely love reading; sitting down and getting lost in an adventure story is one of my favourite escapes from reality. I couldn't possibly pick a favourite subject as they are all excellent in their own right however I do love teaching maths and PE.
Alongside me are our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Brown and Mrs Clements. Although we don't have them all the time, when we do, they are always ready to welcome the children with a smile and help whenever they can. We are one of the three Year 4 classes, with Titan and Saturn. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. However, Mars was also the Roman god of war and second only to Jupiter. So, don’t undermine us!
Children in Mars are creative, enthusiastic and always ready to learn! As a class, we have created an environment that is built upon respect for one another, fun, and support for each other. Children in Mars are seen as individuals who can achieve anything that they dream.
Our main focus this year is Independent Learning where children will build upon the skills they already have and develop their questioning, respect for the work they produce and utilise 3B4T.
Alongside this, all year 4 children should be aiming for their timetables star so they can rock their multiplication test at the end of the year. We need to be practicing these whenever we can, especially at home!
Through the TLC curriculum, the children will open the door to a world of dragons, wolves, robots, and so much more! A love of reading is stimulated through this curriculum and our tremendous selection of books encourage children to holistically develop.
We look forward to what can only be a fantastic year!
