Welcome back Class 4!

Knowledge mat

 

We will be taught by Miss Greenwood, Mrs Cutler and Mrs Shield, with Mrs Gallagher teaching every Thursday morning.

Reading and Literacy

Children will read their own book with an adult in Class 4, at least once a week. Aside from this, they will also independently read and read as a whole class. Children are expected to read at home for at least 15 minutes a day, and to an adult whenever possible. Our class novel for the first half term is…

How to train your dragon!

Class 4 do Literacy every morning for an hour, where we will build our writing skills. Children will receive a comprehension homework, for practice, every two weeks.​​ Our termly project may link with our themes of writing.

Project

This term our project is ‘Did a dinosaur drink this water?’ Within this project, we will become scientists, investigating the water cycle and how it works, how water can be cleaned an how water is used every single day. Water is all around us and we will use our geography skills and find out about different rivers around the world, what they are used for and the environmental issues that they can cause. We look forward to reading and basing our writing on a range of stories based on this topic! Have a look at our homework menu (on Showbie) to join in at home. 

Maths

Class 4 do an hour of maths every morning, practicing our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving throughout every objective. Currently, we are developing our knowledge of place value in numbers with up to 4 digits. We will have a huge focus on learning our times tables this year, specifically using TT Rockstars to help us. This is easy to join in with at home. https://ttrockstars.com/

Every other week, children will receive a piece of maths homework, linked to that week's learning. Ask your children to explain 'how they know' the answer to a homework question, or what they have learned at school - to practice their reasoning skills! 

General Reminders 

Children will need their PE KITS (black shorts and a white t-shirt, with pumps or trainers) on a Thursday morning for PE lessons. PE kits can stay in school throughout the week. Children should always have their trainers, weather depending on where their lesson will take place. Earrings must be removed for sports. Please make sure that uniform, as well as PE kits, are labelled with names.

SPELLINGS will be handed out every Friday for your child to practice, and tested the following Friday afternoon. Aswell as practicing on your sheet, you can log onto spelling frame at home, which provides games and ways to learn your given spellings for that week. Water bottles and reading books must be in school every day.

HOMEWORK will be  sent home via your child's existing Showbie account. Homework should be completed by the following Wednesday morning at the latest. If this is not completed then children will be asked to do use an iPAD/ laptop in school to complete during playtimes and lunchtimes. Please do not worry if homework is not immediately set via Showbie from Week 1 - we will be giving the children adequate time to settle in! Project homework ideas will be sent home and also uploaded to Showbie. Project homework must be uploaded to Showbie (uploaded potographs or documents), to be shared with the class in a 'project showcase' on the 19th October. 

If you have any concerns or problems, please come to the door before or after school and speak to one of our class staff members. If required, don't hesitate to make an appointment with us one day after school.

 

We are going to have a fantastic year in Class 4!

Miss Greenwood
