Welcome to Class 4

We are a Key stage 2 class of Year 4 and 5 children. Our Teacher is Miss Glover and she is helped by Mrs Smith and Mrs Wild. We are situated in the outside, eco-friendly classroom.

We enjoy learning maths, science and writing the most; we also like going to after school clubs. We think our lessons are really good and this year we want to do lots of topic work.

Welcome back into Class 4

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back into Class 4. I hope that you all enjoyed your break. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the gifts and cards received by class 4 staff- they were greatly appreciated.

I am pleased to inform you that we have a new member of Class 4, Mrs Napier Ford, who will be working with the children in our class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.

The topic for this term is ‘The River Severn’. We will be focusing on the book, ‘Why The Whales Came’ by Michael Morpurgo, during our English lessons. The children have already shown a great interest in learning more about our nearest river! Any information you have at home on the topic would be great.

Homework tasks will be set in the next few week; the children seem to have enjoyed the freedom of the Viking homework last term (which were fantastic), so I hope they will show as much enthusiasm this term.

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

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

Kind regards,

Miss Glover and the Class 4 team.

Flu Immunisation Programme

The Gloucestershire Immunisation Team will soon be visiting Slmbridge Primary School to start the flu immunisation programme.

Don’t worry – there are no needles involved! The children are immunised with a quick and simple nasal spray.

All the details have already been sent home, but are attached here just in case you need any other information.

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.
