Summer term

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back into Class 4. I hope that you all enjoyed your break and you took some time to relax, being at home without the stresses of ‘home learning’. I am hoping that this term will be an enjoyable one for all of the children and they will be excited about our new topics and opportunities to learn.

The topic for this term is ‘inventions’. We will be focusing on the book, ‘Until I met Dudley’ by Roger McGough, during our English lessons. The topic will involve designing their own inventions and looking carefully at explanatory texts and instruction writing. I am hoping they will enjoy getting creative during this topic. The children have already been enjoying getting creative and have come up with some fantastic ideas.

We have started learning about some famous inventors and how their inventions have impacted our lives.

In Maths, the children have been exploring different shapes and angles, some of us will be starting to use protractors to measure angles.

In Science, we will be looking at electricity and will even be making our own string telephones. The topic has started well with a sound walk around school, we’ve decided that the noisiest area of the school is by Class 1.

PE will continue to be taught on a Tuesday, but once again please could all children have their PE kits in school every day with long hair tied back and earrings taken out.

I am not setting homework this term, as I would really like the children to spend time reading regularly at home. It really is so vital that children are exposed to a breadth of language and are learning new vocabulary daily. We were very lucky to receive some new brilliant books from FOSS at the end of last term, which are waiting to be read!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via Tapestry.

Kind regards,

Miss Glover and the Class 4 team.
