Class 4

 

 

Welcome to Class 4's page

 

Dear parent/Carers

Welcome back to the Summer term and yet another busy one. Our year six children will be gearing up for their SATs which will run from the 9th -13th May and we will be doing everything possible to ensure their success. As I’ve said before the SATs are just a very small part of your child’s educational journey, so I will be continuing to teach a full and balanced curriculum ensuring that we are caring for the whole child. After a very tricky couple of years your child’s mental wellness is my main priority and I do not want them to worry about these tests.

 

This half term:

In Topic -We will be looking a the Anglo-Saxons concentrating on our substantive concept of civilisation. We will be exploring Anglo-Saxon society and kingdoms, the conversion to Christianity and the return of the towns. 

In Science we will be exploring the heart and system circulatory system. I plan on doing lots of experiments that I'm sure the children will love. 

In Maths YR6 We will be looking a touching all the units that we have not yet covered in order to make sure they are equipped to answer any SATS question starting with area and volume, then ratio, then angles and nets. 

YR5 will be looking at decimals and percentages

In English: We will using a short clip to base some of our writing on. We will be looking at character and setting description, writing a diary entry and writing a short narrative. 

In R.E: we will be looking at sacrifice then moving onto transformation. 

In Art: We will be looking at different techniques to represent nature.

In Music: We will be looking at Motown music. 

In ICT : We will be looking at creating Games. 

In PSHE we will be continuing to look at keeping ourselves safe we will then be moving onto the Trinity.  

 

P.E Children will have their  P.E sessions on TUESDAY and  THURSDAY. Please can you ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their P.E kit.

 

Homework- I haven’t included a homework grid as I feel that the maths, grammar and comprehension books the children are already doing is enough. Children must hand their homework in on Friday this give us the opportunity to go through it on Monday so I can support the children with any misconceptions. If you are unsure which pages your child needs to complete I add the page numbers to Google classrooms every week. 

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.
