Welcome to Class 4
Welcome to Class 4!
We are looking forward to working together so that we can experience a very exciting and productive year at school. We hope that you and your child/children enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Class 4 has to offer! Our class TA is Mrs Evans.
This term we are looking forward to teaching some exciting topics, such as: Crime and Punishment in History, Evolution and Inheritance in Science, and creating our own class film in Computing. During the first half-term, PE will be netball and will take place on Wednesday afternoon and swimming will be on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that you have the correct kit in school and all earrings are removed, or tape is applied. Swimming kit comprises of, a sensible costume, suitable trunks (not shorts), goggles and an optional hat.
Welcome to Reading in Year 5/6...
This year, as a school, we are focusing on developing all of our children as enthusiastic readers. Therefore, reading will be a key part of the curriculum and timetable. As well as Guided Reading, your child will be expected to read independently or with an adult daily. Please can you ensure your child has their reading book and blue home/school diary in school every day. Please sign the home/school diary when you have listened to them read at home. When listening to your child read, please can you always question them about what they have read to check that they are reading with understanding and inference. If you would like a set of question prompts to use with your child, please see the resources section on the class page.
We are also running a 'Grand Draw' raffle system whereby, when a child reads five consecutive times and has a signature from an adult, they receive a raffle ticket to add to the class jar. At the end of every half-term, a golden ticket is drawn and the lucky winner will receive a non-uniform day pass.
The last thing we would like to say is that our door is always open. Please feel free to come and speak to/call us at the end of the school day if you have any concerns.
