Otter Class- Year 4

The Otters are back in the holt!

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that our little family of otters are reunited. It is lovely to have the whole gang back together and the emphasis is on settling back into school, keeping safe and having fun.


We are all now getting into the routine of staggered arrivals and pick-ups. This seems to be working well. We start the day with some independent reading and then a discussion about hobbies or the news, then onto our lessons.


Our topics for this term are great: the Rampaging Romans (history), Somewhere to Settle (geography) and Animals, Including Humans (science). We shall be having a Roman Day soon with the dressing-up so look out your old sheets to make a toga!


With five months off school, it is inevitable that a lot of reading practice will now be needed to help us catch up, so could you please support your child with their daily reading, remembering to sign the reading record book. We also have guided reading groups and 1:1 reading in class to help progress their skills too.


I shall be available to chat to at the start and end of the day. Mrs Webb will also be on hand if you have any questions or queries. If there is anything you would like to discuss in greater depth, please feel free to make an appointment with me by calling the office.


Many thanks.
