Class 4

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, Mrs Wilde and Miss Wilkins. 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

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, even if it was not quite as you planned. Although things have been slightly different this year, the children have settled into the classroom brilliantly and they are getting used to the new routines. I am really proud of how well they have adjusted, well done everybody.

The first topic for this year is ‘Habitats’. We will be focusing on the book, ‘Voices in the park’ by Anthony Browne, 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, 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 Tuesday, but please ensure that all children have their PE kits in school every day with long hair tied back and earrings taken out. The children had their first session of quick cricket this week.

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.

Animals homework sheet

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.

Kind regards,

Miss Glover and the Class 4 team.

Whole School Covid-19 Risk Assessment – September 2020

Dear Parents and carers, 

We hope that everyone is enjoying the summer break and some of the lovely weather we are having. 

September is fast approaching and we are working hard to get ready to open our doors to all children once again; we cannot wait to welcome you all back. 

Below is our whole school ‘risk assessment’ which details all the measures we are putting into place as we welcome everyone back to school. 

See you all soon.

Year 4 and 5 Home Learning 13/07/2020

Hello Year 4 and 5,

The end of the school year is finally here! Although it does not feel like the normal end, I hope you can find the time to celebrate finishing another year of primary school. Both Mrs Randall and I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all and we hope you have the best summer you possibly can. There will be our normal ‘scrapbook challenge’ with a few added activities, if you do feel you want do some learning over the holidays.

I appreciate that lots of you have found this period difficult and you have done so well to manage it, whatever way that was for you. I hope you are all staying well and will enjoy your final week of ‘home learning’.

English:

Again, I have added the Pie Corbett, talk for writing pack. If you would rather complete another activity for your English task this week, I would love you to write a letter to yourself reflecting on this period. Think about what you have enjoyed/ found difficult, if you have started a new hobby, what you are most looking forward to when we ‘go back to normal’. These letters will be interesting for you to keep for many years and look back at in the future.

Maths:

This week, I will be giving you work on money. Many of these questions will require you to use addition and subtraction too, so I hope they are all manageable. I know we covered a few of these types of questions in an earlier pack but it is a useful topic to revisit regularly and not just in word problems.

Please remember you should regularly be practising your times tables, this has been particularly successful this year when using TTRockstars- which I will be setting up battles for you to take part in.

Topic:

I have added an activity that challenges you to ‘make a birds’ nest using materials that you find outside. It is a little bit different but hopefully you will enjoy this challenge, it says you can ‘add your stickers’ once you complete your challenge, this is to be added to your reward charts that were added to Tapestry a few weeks ago.

I hope to see some of you when you come in for your transition session this week,

Have a lovely week,

Miss Glover
