Class 4

 

 

Welcome to Class 4's page

 

Dear parent/Carers

Welcome back, I hope you have all had a restful summer break. I'm very much looking forward to seeing all the smiling faces. We have a busy half term ahead of us but I've planned some interesting topics that I'm sure the children will love. As always if you are concerned about anything please do not hesitate to contact me.

This half term:

In Topic – We will be studying a history unit looking at conflict. We will be focussing on the Viking invasion, exploring why they invaded and how this changed the history of Britain. 

In Science we will be exploring Gravity. I have planned several experiments which I'm sure the children will enjoy. We will also look at the theories of scientists.  

In Maths Both Yr6 and Yr5 will be starting on Place value. We will also be doing daily arithmetic quizzes; if your child is not confident with their times tables please encourage them to learn them as this will give them greater confidence in the following units of work. 

In English: We will be using our class novel of 'The Nowhere Emporium' to look at complex sentence structure which we will use in a short narrative. We will also be looking at list poems. 

In R.E: We are looking at the domestic church, focusing firstly on family. 

In DT: I am hoping to include some cookery perhaps baking some Viking soda bread. We will also be looking at attachment technique. 

In Music: We will be looking at melodic phrases.  

In ICT : We will be looking at coding.

In PSHE: looking at gifts and talents.

Spanish: Describing ourselves to others

 

P.E Children will have Swimming on  MONDAY and then gymnastics on FRIDAY Please can you ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their P.E kit. 

 

Homework- I have included an optional homework grid on our class page. There are also games on your child's Active learn account and in purple mash. 

Reading- is very important it not only develops a love of reading but also develops imagination which is essential for story writing. Please wherever possible encourage your child to read at home and bring their reading and library books back into school when they are ready to change them.  We are wanting to inspire a love of reading if your child is not enjoying their school book and prefers to read a book of their own please just make a note in the reading book journal so that the children can be rewarded for reading for pleasure.

        Spelling-spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. 

        Time tables/arithmetic - Each Friday i will also conduct a mini times table/arithmetic test which will normally focus on what we have been learning during the week.

Personal Belongings

Please make sure that all belongings are clearly labelled with your child's full name as we are getting a number of items left daily that are unclaimed or are taken home by other children in error.  Many thanks for your help with this. 

 

Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any questions throughout the year.
