Class 4 

Unfortunately, the year hasn’t started how we had all hoped. You should all have your details to login in to the VLE and access the remote learning. The work will be set each day and you will have some recorded lessons from me. I can’t wait to see the work that you produce and I will be giving you feedback virtually. Details for the spring term learning plans can be found below, along with the homework list for this term. Please feel free to complete some of these tasks throughout this time if you would like to. Stay safe, take care and keep smiling!

Firstly, I’d like to say happy new year and a warm welcome back to school! We settled back into school life and into our class routines well in the Autumn term. We worked really hard and I know we will continue to do so. In class 4 we are lucky to have the help from Mrs Thomas, Mr Lockwood and Mrs Brain throughout the week.

Our new topic for this term is ‘Protect our Planet’ which will have a geography focus exploring climate change. It will be really insightful to learn about what changes (big or small) we can make to help manage the effects. In history this term, we will be learning all about the Iron Age. The homework activities for the children this term allow them to continue their learning surrounding the topic and give them the opportunity to choose tasks from different subject areas. Please see the downloadable document for more details.

In literacy so far we have developed our skills and produced some great pieces of writing. This term will be continuing to refine our grammatical understanding and writing skills through exploring a range of text types while using our topic and class books as focus points.

In maths we will continue to have one lesson a week on shape, space and measure. Our other lessons will initially be focussed on the multiplication and division unit of work. Golden 50/100 will continue to be a weekly numeracy activity for the Year 4 children and will be completed on alternate weeks for Year 5 with the other being an arithmetic paper. We will also undertake the mega maths challenge at the end of each half term.

Spellings will continue to be handed out weekly with the year 4 test on a Tuesday and year 5 on a Thursday. All of the spelling sheets for this term are available to download on this page.
