Welcome to Class 4!
Welcome to Class 4! I am looking forward to working together with you all so that we can create a very exciting and productive year at school. I hope that you and your child enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Class 4 has to offer! Our class TA’s are Mrs Phelps and Mrs Evans. Mrs Pillai will also be with us until Christmas.
We’ve had a great start – visiting The Natural History Museum in London and then watching Beauty and the Beast at the London Palladium was incredible. It was humbling to be there at such an historical, yet sad time. The children will never forget seeing King Charles III and the Queen Consort in their car as we drove through London. I’m sure this will be a moment the children will never forget. Last Friday, the Year 5 children enjoyed an afternoon of tag rugby at The King’s School Gloucester and on Tuesday, Class 4 were introduced to the fascinating world of robotics by QinetiQ, a local company of scientists and engineers with expertise in science and engineering. Congratulation to Jack, Charlie and Oscar who will progress to the STEM inter-school challenge in Malvern. What a start!
Welcome to Reading in Year 5/6...
This year, as a school, we are focussing 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 let me know and I will willingly send you a copy home.
· The children will go swimming and have PE on Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE and swimming kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. ALL JEWELLERY TO BE REMOVED.
The last thing I would like to say is that my door is always open. Please feel free to come and speak to me at any time if you have any concerns.
