Class 4

A message from your teachers

 

Welcome to Class 4's page

 

Dear Parents/ Carers

 I hope you and the children have had a restful summer break. I am very much looking forward to further developing your child’s learning journey in Class 4. As you will be able to see we have an ambitious and very busy half term ahead.

This half term:

Our topic is World War 1 we will be exploring how and why World War 1 began and looking at significant people and events that happened during the war.

 

Literacy - We will be tying in our WW1 topic into our writing. We will be exploring the vocabulary and structure of letters and diaries of the time and producing our own. We will also be looking at the text ‘The War Horse’ again drawing on the vocabulary used. We will also be creating a short story focussing on new vocabulary and setting description.

 

Art- We will be continuing with our WW1 theme and looking at the artist Henry Moore. We will be mastering our drawing and painting techniques.

 

Science- We will be exploring and experimenting with Light and colour, I have included a key knowledge and vocabulary sheet.

 

Religious Education - We will be focussing on the love of God and relationships.

 

Computing- We will be extending our programming skills and creating a playable game with scorepad.

 

Spanish- We will be looking at describing ourselves.

 

Numeracy- We will be focussing on number and place value and statistics.

 

P.E is now on a Wednesday please can you ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their P.E kit.

 

Homework- I have included an optional Home learning grid on our class page if you would like to complete.            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.
