Year 4

Welcome to Class 4P and Class 4S

Mrs Mills

This year I am looking forward to...

Exploring circuits in Science and DT. I enjoy practical learning and can't wait to see our pupils design and make advertising boards. I hope Year 4 are as excited as we are about delving into our History driver subject. I can't wait to see them become Viking and Anglo-Saxon experts.

My top tip for learning is...

Believe in yourself! Listen, ask questions then give it your best shot, and I will be proud. When you feel well, you will learn to the best of your ability, so I believe it is just as important to focus on our well-being and self-esteem in my classroom. "Always remember you matter, you're important and bring to this world things no-one else can".

Miss O'Shea

This year I am looking forward to...

Immersing ourselves in the Vikings and the Anglo Saxons in our History leaning.        I am also excited for exploring electricity in Science and Design Technology though lots of exploratory activities. 

My top tip for learning is...

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and always have a go. The best learning is achieved through trial and error. Remember we are all on a learning journey together which is so exciting!

Everyone a Mayflower Reader | Hear Me Become A Reader

There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!

'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.

With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.

The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).

If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).

Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!

Please see the links below, which provide step-by-step instructions in 'logging in' and 'recording your reading'.
