Welcome to Class 4!

Welcome!

We are back in our refurbished building and although there are some changes due to Covid 19, things are ticking along smoothly in Class 4. We currently have two teachers - Mr. Brown and Mrs Ellis alongside our two teaching assistants, Mrs Barnes and Mrs Lund. We got off to a great start doing lots of catch-up learning to make up for all the time missed during Lockdown. Children - please do remember to wrap up well as it's getting colder and the windows are open!

Homework

Homework will be set on Seesaw on Monday (or sent home). This is to be completed by Friday. There will also be Spelling Shed activities to complete.

Topics

We have already looked at Romans and how Julius Caesar extended the Roman Empire. We looked at Roman foods and how the Romans contributed to the world we live in today.

We are now working on our Rivers topic:

Literacy

One of our core areas, we have spent lots of time improving writing and also working on our reading skills. The children wrote some amazing Horrid Henry stories recently and enjoyed reading The Wolves in the Walls!

Reading books

Children will read daily in class, either quietly to themselves, in a guided reading group or with an adult. They will bring a reading book home daily. Books should be handed in on Friday and a new one will be issued on Monday. Children will also have another library book to read. Of course, children should feel free to read other books or materials at home.

 

PE

This will be on Tuesday and children should come to school in an outdoor PE kit.

 

 

We have looked at the Water Cycle:

Science

We started the year looking at teeth and then the digestive system. We learned how to look after our teeth and what the functions of different teeth are.

We are now learning about electricity. This includes how to stay safe and also how simple circuits work.
