Welcome to Year 4!
Road Trip USA!
Buckle up, put your shades on – we’re off on a road trip across the U S of A!
Flying from Birmingham International, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the amazing sights and sounds of the Big Apple. We will be using our map skills to navigate our way around some of its most famous landmarks and will get the chance to send postcards home to ask the question: Do you wish you were here?
Learning how to send an email is important, especially when you want to book a day trip or reserve a room. We must be sure to ask those all important questions: Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?
We will meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with fascinating customs and traditions.
Then we will plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four, they want to spend three weeks in the sun!
It’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair – off we go!

Parents may also wish to see the Safeguarding section of our school website which includes details on E-safety:
In school we were exploring animal classifications. Here is an activity you can print off at home.
School Closure Activities due to Covid-19:
Please find below lots of activities, both practical and written, that you can do with your child during the school closure. As we cannot anticipate how long this will be for, we have given you links to items that you can print, do online or undertake as a family. Further activities will be posted directly to your child via the Google Classroom in due course.
