Class 4 consists of years 5, and 6. In our class, we have four adults working with us. Mrs Reid (Mon/Tues/ Weds am/ Thurs am) and Mrs Adjei (Weds pm/Thurs pm/ Fri) are our teachers. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Lilwall. Miss Andrews is a trainee teaching student in our class too. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate in coming to see us.
In English this term, we are reading ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will use this book to support our writing across a range of genres. Our English homework will be related to grammar and punctuation exercises one week and an extended writing piece the next.
In Maths this term, we will be using basic skills and written methods to support our arithmetic and reasoning. We will explore fractions and decimals and solve problems related to this. Homework will be related to what we have been learning each week, as well as continuing to learn our times tables.
In Science, we are learning about States of matter and Properties and Changes of Materials. We will investigate changes in water by heating and cooling and mixing materials in different ways.
History, Geography, Art and Design
Our main topic this term is Vikings. We will study their lifestyles, food, clothing and pastimes. We will look at where they travelled in geography and how they used ships with oarsmen. In art and design, we will focus on Viking Long Boats.
In RE this term, we are focusing in on how religions use the different arts in their worship.
We will be completing outdoor PE(weather permitting) on Mondays and swimming on Thursdays this term.
All homework will be set on a Thursday to be returned on a Tuesday. We will send spellings home with homework and test them on the following Friday in class too.
