Y5 and Y6 Class 4

Welcome to Class 4

Autumn 2018

 Welcome back to you all!

 

Another exciting Term ahead of us. Our term starts with a look into the interesting lives of the Anglo-Saxons. We will read and become familiar with The Beowulf story - it's a fantastic adventure story that allows us to explore History,  English  and Art skills all in one.

 

As the term proceeds we will be looking at making Quiche as part of our DT topic, the children will bring home a list of a few ingredients - which they will select- to make their own individual design- a yummy treat that will save the chore of cooking an meal for one evening!!

 

I am sure you will soon hear, in Class 4 children are rewarded with Fab Ticks for being considerate, working hard, trying etc, etc. However, this term there are extra Fab Ticks to be gained - a total of five a week -  these will be awarded in acknowledgment of reading 3 times a week at home, this will also help with the Owls and Bells friendly, but competitive, house point challenge that is announced weekly during assembly time.

 

It is so important to listen to your child read, just ten to fifteen minutes a night will benefit your child's progress greatly; taking time to explore new vocabulary, summarising text and making predictions and most importantly just gaining an enjoyment out or reading which will all help to build a life-long love of reading. Please do come and ask if you feel you require further support or advice to support reading at home, I will happily talk you through some ideas.

 

As part of our Maths work, daily practice at home of times tables will  really help and give your child the confidence to tackle complex word problems- times table knowledge underpins so much of the maths they do -a simple CD in the car will really help with this.

 

Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Thursday. PE will be on a Monday and a Friday, however, it's always useful to have their PE Kit in school all week just in case things get changed.

 

We welcome anyone who would like to share an expertise with the children or hear them read, help with maths or get messy with the clay, just come and see us.

 

Many Thanks and as always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

 

Miss Miners (Class Teacher) and Mrs Skinner (Teaching Assistant)
