Year 4


Dear Families



We welcome you all back and hope you had a relaxing and restful break! We are so excited for another term of learning with the wonderful Year 4 Children! This term our topic is Ice and Fire. For this we will be exploring the Ice age, Stone age and history beyond that. The children will not only get to explore this but think about the way we live now in comparison. The focus text in English this term will be The Ice Monster in addition to exposure to other similar texts. We have some VERY exciting things planned for the children and can’t wait to get started. For their stunning start the children had to dig clues out of ice blocks, create their own biscuit igloos, got to experience what life would have been like living in a cave and got to learn about the History of the Woolly Mammoth; creating habitat globes. What a start!

Attendance and Punctuality


We do our very best to support your child’s learning and expect children to attend school every day, unless they are unwell.  We also expect children to arrive on time for every session. 

Children who have good attendance make good progress and achieve more highly.



Healthy Schools


At Highlands our aim is to help our children become healthy and happy citizens of the world. To support this we would like you to make sure your child has a water bottle to help keep them hydrated at school. They will also need to have a healthy breakfast before they come to school.

We are also working hard to provide our children with the healthiest lunches possible to make sure they are ready to learn in the afternoon. On a Monday and  a Friday your child is allowed to have one treat in their lunch box. All children are able to bring a healthy snack to have at playtime such as a piece of fruit or cereal bar.

Please remember we are a milk and water only school.
