Hi, I’m Miss Alsop, and I’m really excited to welcome you all back when you come into Year 4.
This year is going to be full of fantastic topics!
The Egyptians is always a firm favourite so get ready to learn all the gory details! Did you know the Egyptians pulled brains out with a hook? We hope you have a keen eye for fashion because we will be putting together our own Viking fashion show! We also explore Paris and spend time learning about their culture and eating their food. Let’s not forget Science. Have you ever ventured inside of a human ear? There are bones less than 3 millimetres long!
Let me tell you about myself. I like running and baking – I bake a lot which means I have to run more than I’d like! This year, I have been training for the Great North Run, but after it got cancelled I’ve got a whole extra year to complain about how stiff and tired my legs are. I have two cats called Titus and Pullo, who I’ll be sure to tell you all about as their antics are mischievous and often hilarious.
I know you may be a little bit nervous coming back to school after all this time, but don’t worry. You’re going to be playing in the same yard, using the same door, and working in the same building. The only thing that’s changed is your classroom.
Your new room is absolutely huge, has its own reading area and is complete with a new computing hub filled with touchscreen ChromeBooks.
We’re going to have a brilliant year!
Hey, I’m Mr. Gray, and I’m so looking forward to welcoming you to my class next year. I’m very glad that we’re moving up to Year 4 together and I’m sure we’ll have a fantastic year.
What we’ll be doing in Year 4
We are going to cover some very interesting and exciting topics in Year 4. We’ll be travelling back to the Ancient Egyptians, the time when pharaohs were phoul, servants suffered and everyone believed in an awesome afterlife. Something I’m also very excited about is our Vikings topic, where we’ll be making our own viking clothes and having a viking fashion show! If you’re a foodie, you’ll love learning about Paris as we sample a range of French food. We’ll also be learning so many interesting facts about the human body, sound and electricity in our science lessons too.
A little bit about me:
I really like to spend my time outdoors - playing lots of golf and football. I also enjoy hiking with my friends. We have climbed lots of mountains in the UK and abroad, including Mount Fuji in Japan.
One of my other passions is photography. I like to take my camera with me to take pictures of landscapes when I’m hiking and travelling. Last year, I ran a photography club in school for Yr 4,5 and 6. Hopefully I’ll be able to see at another photography club session in the future.
Coming back to school:
It feels like such a long time since I’ve seen you all in school and I’m sure it will feel the same for you too. Depending on what guidelines are in place, some things in school may be a little different so that we can keep a safe distance but lots of things will stay the same. You’ll still be using the same yard to play and line up, working in the same building and you’ll still be moving to your new classroom.
I hope you all have a great summer and I’m looking forward to seeing you all in September!
