Aim High; Be Resilient; Take Care of Each Other.

Y5 and Y6 Class 4

Welcome to Class 4

Spring Term 2020

 

Welcome back! 

 

We will continue to focus on developing and nurturing in our children the desire and confidence to understand and apply a wider range of vocabulary choices to their work. We ensure the children have access to dictionaries and thesaurus throughout the day. It really has been wonderful to watch the children delight in using new and exciting word choices. This is something we encourage you to discuss at home too.

 

This term, you will hear we are finding out about the legacy of the Ancient Greeks on later periods in British Culture. This will include thinking about democracy, art and architecture. Our Science topic is thinking about properties and changes of materials. We will look at the way solid, liquids and gases react in different situations, with reference to dissolving, filtering, reversible and irreversible changes and burning. As part of our Art work, the children will be making masks using mudroc - a letter will be sent home to ask for your consent to use this material with your child. Their masks will be used to help inspire and perform their own simple Greek Myths. What fun!

 

Reading: This term Class 4 are reading Who let the Gods out by Maz Evans. This text was suggested by a colleague who also teaches Year 5 and 6. They said that the children really 'loved' this book - what better recommendation - so I thought we would give it a try too. Furthermore, this exciting novel links beautifully with our Greek Topic. As with last term, each child has their own copy of this text. We were very kindly donated money by The Friends.

We would like to say a huge thank you to them!!

 

Reading is so important on so many levels and can be easily supported at home. We suggest reading with your child at least 5 times a week. Maintaining regular reading opportunities will ensure your child is exposed to vocabulary and texts that will enable them to unlock an understanding into the wider world. More importantly, reading is a great way to relax and take a much needed breather from the busy life styles we all lead. The Read challenge has already had such a positive impact on the children's attitude to reading. thank you for your continued support at home.

 

Maths as always with aim to develop fluency across all four operations. I can not stress enough the importance of being able to recall times tables facts and fluency with the basic number bonds. 

 

 

Homework will be handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Thursday. PE will be on a Thursday however, it's always useful to have their PE Kit in school all week. 

 

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)
