WELCOME TO CLASS 4
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.
IMAGINATIVE LEARNING PROJECT (ILP)
Summer 2 2021 ~ Pharoahs
Let’s travel back 5000 years, to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and ancient artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part. Become an apprentice and work for Ramose, the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt. Who knows what treasures you will find?

- Reading: at least five times a week (reading records to be handed in on a Monday morning and checked on a Tuesday morning)
- Spellings (these will be uploaded onto Google Classroom each Monday and tested the following Monday)
- Times tables facts (these will be tested each Friday)
- Optional Curriculum Project activities (see home learning ideas on Google Classroom)
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 Year 4. 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. Pupils in Year 4 will also be doing an online multiplication tables check in June. Pupils are asked to answer 25 questions on times tables from 2 to 12. They are given six seconds per question, with three seconds rest between each question, so the test should last less than five minutes.
Class 4 have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays with Mrs Wicks. Children must come to school dressed for PE on these days.
- Shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms - black
- Plain green T-shirt (no large print or design)
- Trainers or plimsolls
- Tracksuits may be worn for outside PE during colder weather
- No earrings or jewellery to be worn for PE
Please can all items of kit and school uniform be named.
We will continue to do a couple of yoga sessions a week (weather permitting). Please can girls wear shorts or leggings underneath their skirts.
