Welcome to Class 4’s web page.
We have lots of wonderful learning planned for the year ahead!
Your child will be taught by Ms Butterfield every day except Tuesday afternoon when they will be taught by Mrs MacDonald (who covers Key Stage 1 PPA time). Mrs MacDonald will teach Shape Space and Measure as well as RE each week.
We start the year with an exciting History topic about Nurturing Nurses as well as learning about various famous people through out Literacy, starting with Pocahontas. In October, we have Partake Theatre doing workshops about Robin Hood who is another of the famous people we will be learning about.
This term's Science is concerned with animals including humans.
The following information may be helpful for you.
PE – please note that currently our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please please please keep checking with your child that they have all they need for PE, that it is labelled and it fits. As the year progresses your children do insist on growing, which we all barely notice but their footwear particularly clearly demonstrates! We aim to send their PE kits home half termly for a good wash.
Homework – this will provided on a Friday and we ask that wherever possible it is returned as soon as it is completed, but by the following Thursday at the latest so that it can marked.
Spellings - Please note that your child’s spelling homework relates to specific National Curriculum statutory requirements. These will be practised in school as well as being sent home. It is really helpful if you work with your child to try and learn these spellings two or three times a week if possible.
Reading - In class 4 we invite the children to take 2 reading books home at a time. Each day we offer the children the opportunity to change their books provided that both have been read with an adult. We do ask that you sign and date your child’s reading record so that we know where they are up to and we welcome your comments about how well your child has read and/or enjoyed their book. We award house points for those readers who achieve at least 3 x signed homework reading sessions in a week.
You can take a look at our timetable for an overview of how our week looks but unsurprisingly we rarely have a ‘normal’ week! We can promise regular fun and inspiring opportunities.
If you wish to chat about your child's progress or have any concerns of any sort, please come and chat to us or arrange an appointment. Please also be reassured that we will chat to you when we feel a discussion might be helpful to you or your child.
