Welcome to Class 4’s web page.
What a wonderful year we have in store!
Your child will be taught by Mrs MacDonald on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and Mrs Lucas will teach for the remainder of the week. We share planning and many many conversations and so we are looking forward to a seamless teaching year, providing super opportunities for your children.
This year we are looking forward to exciting topics, beginning with Horrible Histories! Your children will be learning about the horrid side to some historical events, and this should really appeal to them! Pictures to follow!
The following information may be helpful for you.
PE – please note that currently our PE days are: Wednesdays and Fridays. Please please please keep checking with your child that they have all they need for PE, that it is labelled, and 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, and for your information we are now copying the statement form this document onto the top of your child’s spelling list so that you are aware of what your children are expected to learn. We hope you find it as interesting as both we and your children do.
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 your child has done! We award house points for those readers who achieve at least 3 x signed homework reading sessions in a week and more than that = more house points.
You can take a look at our timetable for an overview of how our week looks but, perhaps unsurprisingly we never rarely have a ‘normal’ week! What we can promise is regular fun and inspiring opportunities.
If you wish to chat about your child, or have any enquiries or concerns please come and chat to us or arrange an appointment. PLEASE also be reassured that we will chat to you when we feel that a discussion would be helpful to you or your child.
We've painted self portraits!
What a lovely lot!
The Pied Piper came!
What with fibbing mayors, plagues of rats, and upset towns people,
it was all a bit of a to do!
I tried really hard to capture images of every one of your children having fun, but some images were too fuzzy (because it was all happening so fast!) I hope you spot the one you are looking for and apologise if I didn't manage a perfect picture! Lots more of the year to go yet though for more opportunities!
