Class 4 consists of Y4 and Y5 children.
Our aim is to nurture the children, in our care, to be adaptable, diligent, creative, self-motivated and thoughtful learners through a rich, varied and exciting curriculum.  
 We encourage children to immerse themselves in our topic and make links between all the subjects they are taught. Throughout the year, children also focus on developing the 5R's of learning: Resilience, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Reasoning and Reflection.
Key Timings:
PE - Monday afternoons
Homework- Handed in on Friday, Given out on Friday and the start of term
Club 99 - Every Friday
Spellings - Issued on Fridays, practised daily every morning and reviewed on a Friday.
The children have been given a homework task sheet from their topic, I am Warrior, they should complete at least three of these tasks by the October half term, hopefully they will complete one per week but can do more if they would like. These can be found in the green book they bring home. Please encourage your child to write neatly, using joined handwriting where possible, and using a sharp pencil.    
Your child will need to read at least twice a week to an adult at home and have their Reading Record signed. Any notes from staff will also go in the Reading Record so it is worth checking this daily. Any changes to your child's AR level can be found at the front of this book.
You will find your child's spelling list for the Autumn term on this page and they will need to keep practicing these at home. Spellings will be learned through daily activities and investigations in class.
Learning times table facts is vital and children should be able to recite their table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Y4. Therefore, it is really important that whenever you get a few minutes you keep encouraging them to revisit these so they can automatically recall the facts without having to use fingers or apparatus. The more your child practices the easier they will find calculations at school and out in the real world. The children will now have access to Times Tables Rockstars, an online resource that can help them practice.
