Welcome to Class 4!

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Summer term is already underway with the children working very hard. We have a busy and exciting term ahead which gives the children plenty of opportunities to be active and creative and to develop their learning.

‘Wonders of the World’ is our topic this half term; the children will find out about manmade wonders of the world and the natural wonders of the world. This topic will enable us to teach in a cross curricular way which will give us the opportunity to develop the children's skills in design and technology, art, history and geography.

Our writing will be linked to the topic which will enable the children to develop story writing and non-fiction writing, including persuasive texts. We will continue reading 'Wonder' by R. J Palacio as our class story and will be using this in class discussion and group work.

Our focus in Science is habitats, food chains and identification keys.  The children will have the opportunity to work outside and to work scientifically and practically. The Day spent in Grizedale Forest on our residential, will further develop the children’s understanding in this area. In RE will focus on our school’s key values of kindness, hope and perseverance.

We will continue to follow the ‘No Nonsense Spelling’ programme which is linked to National Curriculum requirements and provides a structured programme to develop children’s strategies for learning to spell.

Maths will continue to be taught in line with the age related national curriculum - activities will be planned and differentiated to ensure your child’s mathematical needs are met; significant focus will be on developing an ‘I can do ... ‘attitude and developing reasoning and problem solving. Remember that the key skills of quick recall of multiplication and division facts and time telling are important and improve with practice.

In PE, the children will be developing their throwing and hitting skills through Kwik Cricket and will be taking part in athletics activities.  We will continue to learn to play ukulele on a Thursday.

Homework will continue to be given out on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Homework will consist of a piece of work linked to the topic or to the science for the term and a piece of maths homework which will consolidate areas of learning specific to your child.

Many thanks for your continued support. Please contact us if there are any problems or worries that your child may have.

Mrs K. J. Carr & Mrs L. Fletcher
