Welcome to class 4 – Spring Term 2
School reopening information
Thank You !!!
Can I just say a massive thank you to all of my parents in class 4 for doing a tremendous job in home schooling. I am sure that many of you have had to juggle running a home, looking after younger children and going to work, with the demands and pressures of home schooling. I know that many of you have had very limited technology, and some of you have had to share devices with other children in the household. Your samples of work have been very much appreciated, and I hope the children have enjoyed receiving feedback.
We begin school again on Monday 8th March, please can the children arrive for 08:50am and line up in the playground as before lockdown. They will finish at 3:20pm, please can you ensure they are picked up on time as the next bubble departs 10 minutes later.
The children will need to bring with them their lockdown books, reading books, water bottles, lunch and PE kit if it is not already in school. As the weather warms up we will be doing lots more activities outside so PE kits will be needed daily.
Please note that we will still need to adhere to Covid social distancing rules, and all rules in place before lockdown in classrooms will still be kept, ie hand washing, sanitiser, bubbles etc..
As soon as I receive any information, I will inform you immediately. Until then, please can you continue with homeschooling using the following link.
Please feel free to email me with any worries, questions etc…
Heroes for heroes.
Many thanks to parents, children and our wider church family, for all of your wonderful contributions to our ‘Heroes for Heroes’ project. We managed to collect over 40 boxes of Heroes to give to ambulance technicians and paramedics throughout the county. A huge thank you to Mrs Fitton for coming in to school to collect our donations and for distributing them amongst her well deserved colleagues.
I hope you all enjoyed World Book Day. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the day and we have received lots of pictures of children reading in very unusual places. Here are a few of them.
Spring Term 2 Year 4 Curriculum
English – In English this term, we will be reading the book ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. This is a super story and I know the children will really enjoy the storyline. We will also be looking at explanation texts, and will link it to our topic on electricity and also the lifecycle of a butterfly. Elements of diary writing will also be included within this unit.
Maths- In maths this term, we will be completing our work on fractions, and then moving on to graphs. We will then move on to our second book and the focus will be on decimals.
Religious Education – In our RE topic this term, we will be looking at betrayal and trust, and will link this to the Easter story.
French – In French this term, we will be extending our counting to 60; looking at different types of weather, and giving simple directional instructions.
History – This term we will be looking at the Anglo Saxons and we will be exploring theories behind the burial site of Sutton Hoo, and also what like was like at that particular period in history.
Science – In Science we will be looking at electrical circuits and the dangers of electricity. The children will be doing lots of practical work exploring various types of circuits.
