Other Curriculum Areas:

For other curriculum areas we will be covering in Spring please see the Year 4 Spring Overview. For more details on what we will be covering throughout this year these can be found in the files section below: Year 4: Whole Curriculum Overview as well as termly overviews. In addition, please find a range of documents below which will be helpful in supporting your childs learning this year such as key spellings and expectations.

 

The Growth Mindset:

In my own teaching, I am a great believer in the power of positivity and the growth mindset. The growth mindset plays a huge part in our learning. This mindset allows us to change our language which helps us to change an outcome. Hopefully it won't be long before your children begin to use the langauge 'I can't do it YET' and 'mistakes make my brain grow!' Here's a little video to explain it a little more (your children will become very familiar with Mojo!).
