We are the Lion class – our teacher is Miss Jones, our teaching assistants are Mrs Tasev and Mrs Patterson. As Year 4, we are lucky enough to be learning in one of the classrooms in the new school building. 

We are very excited to be some of the oldest children in the school and act as positive role models. We have the responsibility of jobs to take care of our classroom such as organising the reading corner and watering our plants which helps us work together and keep the classroom tidy and organised, ready for learning. 

In Lion class, we always try to be the best we can be and are working hard at becoming independent, problem-solving Key Stage 2 learners. We know that everyone makes mistakes and that it is part of learning so we like to see mistakes as something positive that show our learning journey. 

We like to learn in all sorts of different ways; using drama and talk to inspire our writing; using resources and practical activities to support and justify our Maths knowledge and we like to have active Maths and English lessons outdoors. We are working hard on our times tables, hoping to know them all by the end of the year! We are also practising our super neat handwriting so that our work always looks smart and we earn a pen licence. 

This term, we are learning about Heroes from around the world and discussing what makes someone a hero. We are also looking forward to our other topics, such as ‘Vikings’ and ‘Rainforests’ – we can’t wait to share some of the exciting things we do in Year 4!
