4AA

Welcome to 4AA's class page!

 

Dear Year 4 children and parents,

 

My name is Miss Avery and this is my second year at St Edward's. After spending a year in Year 2, I now have the pleasure of working in Year 4 with Miss Dutton, Mrs Smith and Miss Atkins. Within school, I co-lead PE and the organisation of extra-curricular clubs. P.E and sport has always played a big role in my life so I am excited to be able to share that with the children. In the past, I have done swimming, gymnastics and dance as well as coaching football and achieving my black belt in karate. 

 

Outside of school, I am a brownie leader and have done this for 12 years. As well as, this I played steel pans with Mr Phillips for 10 years (from when I was in Primary School myself).

 

I have been so impressed with all children so far! Despite having no transition days before the holidays due to self-isolation, they have come into Year 4 so settled and ready to learn. Our first topic 'Water, Water Everywhere' has proven to be very popular. So far the children have enjoyed learning about the Isles of Scilly through the book 'Why the Whales Came' and can't wait to start our Science unit. If you would like to see more of our Autumn term curriculum, you will find it below this post.

 

Our P.E. days are currently on Tuesdays and Thursdays and just like last year, children can come to school in their PE kit for the whole day. Please remember that no earrings should be worn during lessons and a white round neck t-shirt with the school badge and plain blue or black shorts/ tracksuit bottoms should be worn.

 

We have many ways to communicate here at school, but currently the most efficient way would be to email the year4@stedward.bham.sch.uk email address which I will be checking daily and will try to respond to you as quickly as I can.

 

I am so excited to get to know the children more, I have already seen lots wonderful personalities shining through! Please don't hesitate to contact me if there are any issues, I am here to help.

 

Best wishes,

Miss Avery

Hello and welcome! This is my class 4AA and I am Thea. This week we have been doing some exciting activities. We made some rockets, which we wrote our aspirations on for Year 4. We also made some stars, we wrote what we need to have a growth mindset and how a person with a growth mindset would think. I wrote "You learn from your mistakes" on mine. We also drew a self portraits showing different emotions, it was really fun. We have started to read 'Why the Whales Came', I really like the Birdman and the book so far!

Have a great weekend :)

Meet our class!

Hello my name is Aksh and I’m here to tell you about our week. We walked to Mass on Wednesday for the first time this year, my favourite hymn was ‘Jesus you can use my hands’. We have also done gymnastics in PE where we have learned some jumps and rolls. Then we learned about a pop artist called Romero Britto, we are going to do some self portraits in his style next week. In English we read about the Birdman and discovered that he had been misunderstood by everyone on the Isles of Scilly and he was actually nice. I have attached some images so you can see some of what we have been up to!
