Year 4 Saturn
Welcome to Saturn Class!
Hello I am Mrs Whittaker and I am very excited to be teaching year 4 this year. I’m looking forward to a year of learning fun and adventure; catching dragons, stealing Aztec jewels and laughing with robots, as well as delving into different versions of some well-known traditional tales. Year four’s TLC books are amazing! We will have loads of fun acting them out and discovering a world of fantastic descriptive vocabulary that we can use in our own fictional stories.
Saturn is unique among the planets; it is not the only planet to have rings—made of chunks of ice and rock—but none are as spectacular or as complicated as Saturn's. Saturn class is going to be spectacular; investigating lots of different scientific questions and doing experiments to promote discovery and learning. The children will get time, space and resources to exercise their curiosity. Class discussion will take place and key questions will be answered.
As an avid geographer I enjoy asking questions to broaden my understanding about the world. I love to find out more about the planet, its mechanisms and the environment. As a class, we will take many opportunities to take learning outside, be active and learn through hands on experience.
Joining us on our journey will be Mr Knapp our teaching assistant, who will support the children’s learning while encouraging independence, promoting confidence and self-esteem as well as motivation and perseverance. Mr Knapp loves superheroes and all things magical, bringing plenty of creativity to the classroom!
We look forward to creating many wonderful memories with you all in Spectacular Saturn!
