Year 4

Meet the Year 4 Team!

 

4A 

Hello, I’m Mrs Hynam!

I’m really looking forward to being a Year 4 teacher this year. I started at Tredegar Park Primary School 9 years ago as a student teacher in Mrs Morgan-Boyett’s class.

I was lucky enough to stay here and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else!

I really loved my time in primary school, I was really good at reading and spelling and believe it or not, I was a super fast runner and used to win all the school sports races!  After being inspired by my favourite teacher, Miss Gill, I knew I wanted to be a teacher but ended up taking a ‘gap year’ after college which ended up

lasting for 10 years! I worked for a transport company, planning routes for lorry drivers - ask me any postcode!

When I’m not at school, I suppose I’m quite boring - I like relaxing on the sofa with some snacks while watching TV. My favourite thing to do is eat out - I wish I could do it everyday!

 

4B

Hi, I’m Mrs Trailor!

In my spare time I enjoy going on adventures with my children, taking my dog for a walk, reading and watching films. My favourite book is any of the Harry Potter books and I have read them quite a few times! I also love watching the Harry Potter films while drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows. I have lots of Harry Potter things in my house but my  favourite is my Lego Hedwig.

I love to  go to the beach because I enjoy hunting for creatures in the rock pools and paddling in the sea. My favourite subjects when I was at school were Music and Art, these are still some of my favourite subjects. I can’t wait to do some painting with you all! 

If I wasn’t a teacher I would love to be a zoo keeper, particularly a zoo keeper looking after sloths

as they are my favourite animal!

 

What will be learning about throughout the year?

 

Autumn Term - Supermarket Sweep

Year 4 will be going 'wild in the aisles'!

We will be finding out where supermarkets get their stock - how far does the food travel? We’ll also find out how supermarkets work - how do they advertise and decide what offers to put on. We’ll be having lots of discussions too - what do we think about self service checkouts? We will also be getting creative, making our own supermarket adverts and recording some tannoy announcements!

Remember...if you’re at the checkout and you hear the beep...think of the fun you could be

having with Supermarket Sweep!

 

Spring Term - Explorers of the Earth

Beep Beep - could all passengers in Year 4 please fasten their seat belts!

We are going to be explorers! Where shall we go? What country have you always wanted to visit? 

We will be looking at where different places are in the world, the history of these places and the cultures of these places. We’ll be finding out about their favourite foods, how they live and comparing them to where we live. 

Don’t forget your toothbrush!

 

Summer Term - Famous Faces

From Neil Armstrong to Charlie D’Amelio - we’ll be finding out the stories behind lots of famous faces. What are they famous for and how did they become famous? 

We’ll find out lots about famous people in history and how they changed the world as well as some modern celebrities who are taking over TikTok and Instagram!

Is being famous as good as it sounds with big houses, lots of money and fancy cars?

We’ll soon find out!

 

 

Now that you are in Year 4...

  • You will have the opportunity to take part in Dragon rugby sessions.
  • You will be taking part in 'Class Brass' when you will learn to play an instrument!
  • We will be going swimming!
  • You will be learning how to develop your handwriting by joining.

 

What can you do at home to help? 

  • For our ‘Supermarket Sweep’ topic you could take your children to the local shops and ask them to find British products, give them their own shopping list or even ask them to find out how much your shopping will cost.

 

  • For our topic ‘Explorers of the Earth’ you could try different foods from the countries we study. You could ask family or friends if they have visited the country and if they have, interview them about their experiences. You could also help your child learn a few words or phrases in the language of the chosen country. Why not use Google maps to find where different countries are located. How far away are they? You could even make a list of the places you and your family have visited or would like to visit.

 

  • For our ‘Famous Faces’ topic, you could discuss who your own favourite ‘Famous Face’ is and why? Tell your child about famous people from your childhood. Ask family and friends, what they think they would be famous for and what they would do if they were famous.

 

Please encourage your children to use Mathletics and Oxford Reading Buddy at home - these are fantastic resources for children to practise their skills.

  

Hwb is another resource that can be used at home - you will find a range of educational apps to support your children's learning.  You will also find lots of information about the new Curriculum for Wales.

 

You can also visit the 'Connect' page on this website to find exciting activities that you could do at home. I'm sure the staff will love knowing you're watching their videos!

 

PE Information

Children will be taking part in weekly PE sessions to help them stay fit and healthy as well as developing their skills such as balance and coordination.

Our PE sessions will be on a Wednesdays.

Please ensure that all jewellery is removed - thank you!
