Term 1 in Class 4

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Class 4, both to the new Year 4s and those returning into Year 5. I hope that you all enjoyed your summer breaks. All the staff in Class 4 had a lovely relaxing time and we are feeling ready and excited for a great year.

The first topic for this year is ‘World War Two’. We will be focusing on the book, ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo, during our English lessons. We will be exploring the themes of the book and should produce some excellent pieces of writing which we will hopefully be able to share with you over the course of the term.

In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and the four operations. We will be improving our knowledge in these areas. As some of you may be aware, as of this year, Year 4 children will now be tested nationally on their times tables. Therefore, it is vital that children are practising their times tables regularly at home and your support with this would be greatly appreciated.

PE will be taught on a Wednesday, but please ensure that all children have their PE kits in school every day with long hair tied back and earrings taken out.

In terms of homework, I will be sending out a homework sheet with a variety of tasks for children to complete over the term. All the activities will be linked to our class topic. I hope that this system will suit all the children and give them an opportunity to share their topic and research at home.

Each week, children will be given a set of spellings which they will need to learn for their weekly spelling test that will take place on Fridays. Reading is something I feel passionately about and it is clear to see the quality of a child’s writing is improved through regularly reading. For this reason, I ask that you listen to your child reading regularly at home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to me at the end of the school day.

Miss Glover and the Class 4 team.

India

Today, we spent the day celebrating India. We were so excited to learn more about the country and even had the chance to participate in an Indian dance workshop- which was brilliant (although it tired us all out). The children were really keen to try some Indian food; the Naans were a definite hit. The… Continue Reading
