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 ably helped by Miss Wilkins and Mrs Dunn.

We enjoy learning maths and are excellent at our times tables! We are also very good at writing and love reading.

We think our lessons are really good and this year we want to do lots of topic work.

Term 5- SUMMER TERM

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine.

This term is a short one, with a few things to bear in mind so I will include some key dates for your diaries:

  • Redwood trip on Tuesday 10th May- letter to follow.
  • Swimming sessions will continue on Monday afternoons.
  • Young voices (for our Y5s) Friday 20th May

Our topic for this term is the Egyptians, hopefully the children will enjoy learning about this period of history. They are always so enthusiastic about our topics.

I will include our homework grid for this term which is based on our topic for this term:

Please continue to support your children with their spellings and remember to use our new app, ‘SirLinkalot’!

Timetables continue to be a BIG priority and I appreciate your support with this. They will take their official test in June, so it is really important that they are still a focus.

If you have any worries or concerns please feel free to send me a message on Tapestry,

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Glover

Term 4 in Class 4

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a wonderful half term. The children were all really keen to tell me about their week off and all the fun things they did- it seems lots of people watched ‘Sing 2’.

This term seems to be a busy one in Class 4, so I will included some key dates for your diaries:

  • World Book Day (Thursday 3rd March)
  • Red Nose Day (Friday 18th March)
  • Swimming (Starting on Monday 21st March)

Our topic for this term is ‘Edward Jenner’, we will be learning about his significance and why he is such an important local figure. I think the children will really enjoy exploring his life.

I will include our homework grid for this term which is based on our science topic for this term, ‘living thing and their habitats’.

Happy New Year

Dear Parents and Carers,

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

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.

Homework tasks: the children seem to have enjoyed the freedom of the homework last term, so I hope they will show as much enthusiasm this term as we continue with the list of various activities. Here is the activity sheet- river severn homework

In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions and measurements and improving out knowledge in these areas. Once again, I would like to promote the ‘Times Table Rockstar’ game that we are using across the school to encourage children to learn their times tables in a fun and engaging way. I have been impressed with the children and their determination to learn their times tables.

In Science we will be looking at properties and changes of materials. Mrs Malkin hopes to carry out lots of experiments and get the children to start making scientific predictions.

PE will continue to be taught on a Thursday, 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.

Term 2

Welcome back Class 4,

I hope you all had a lovely half term! Class 4 have already been busy starting their new topic ‘The Vikings’. We spent our first topic lesson, looking at where the Vikings fit into our history timeline.

In English this term, we are reading ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’- the children have already written their own descriptions of an ‘unlikely hero’, based on Arthur.

In Maths, we are learning about methods of multiplication and applying our growing understanding of times tables to work with larger numbers.

The homework tasks for this term can be accessed below:

Kind regards

Miss Glover, Miss Wilkins and Mrs Dunne.
