Welcome to Year 4!
Our teachers are Mrs McBride (4M - Pandas) and Mrs Dyke (4D- Rhinos) and our teaching assistant is Mrs Caborn.
Throughout Year 4, we aim to create the opportunity for all children to immerse themselves fully into Key Stage Two and the exciting challenges that it brings! After successfully transitioning into Key Stage Two, the children now understand their role as independent learners within school. However, following on from the aftermath and disruption that the Corona virus caused last year, the wellbeing and happiness of our children still remain at the forefront of everything we do. Our first few days in the Autumn term will be focused on wellbeing and expressing emotions. This will then be underpinned by our weekly 'Jigsaw' RSHE lessons.
We have high expectations both pastorally and academically, working hard to master key skills such as: self-organisation, time management and to continue the commitment and motivation towards learning and developing, in our true Silverhill style - 'being yourself'.
Teaching and learning does not stand still! We are constantly striving to excite, challenge and motivate our pupils, particularly through our three 'Theme' topics' ('Boy in the Tower', London and The Anglo-Saxons). The content and rigour of our Year Four curriculum raises expectations and inspires our pupils to achieve the very best they can, in a fun and imaginative way! We enjoy bringing learning to life and immersing the children in real-life experiences as much as we can. This includes our extremely exciting residential trip to London!
