Classes >> Puffin Class
Hello and welcome to Puffin Class! My name is Miss Hancocks and I am the teacher. We have 2 lovely teaching assistants in year 4 who will be looking after you too; they are called Mrs Hearn and Mrs Smith. We are all really looking forward to a wonderful year in our classroom!
In Puffin class I encourage all children to be happy, confident and independent learners. I like all the children to try their best at ALL times, to be kind and helpful and to keep our classroom neat and tidy.
There is a lot to look forward to in Year 4! Our classrooms are in the ‘new build’ so we have new resources to look after.
We also have exciting new topics… To kick start we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians in our topic, ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’. In the Spring term we then have ‘Born in the USA’ and ‘Raging Rivers and Mighty Mountains’. In these topics we learn all about the United States of America, the water cycle, mountains, rivers and coasts. We will start the summer term learning about our bodies – digestion, sound and teeth - it’s ‘Cool to be Me’. Our last topic is called ‘Invaders and Settlers’, where we learn all about the Vikings and Saxons in England and Europe.
What an exciting year we will have! I can’t wait to start our learning adventure together!
