Welcome to Class 4!   

 Wow, here we are in the summer term already!

Class 4 have made excellent progress in all areas of their learning and I can safely say our theme of:

Heroes, Shields and Mythical Creatures was a great hit!

This term we will be studying the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Greece in our theme entitled:

 Who Let the Gods Out?

Our Science focus is ‘Living Things including humans’ where we will be studying food chains and classifications of animals in greater depth.  In Art, we will be looking more closely at shades and tints and using water colours to create an Ancient Greek scene.  In Music, we are learning the songs from the BBC's ‘Heroes of Troy’ production – watch this space – there may be a date for your diary to come and see it!  Our Active Read text is the aptly named ‘Who Let the Gods Out' by Maz Evans, which is a mixture of modern day childhood antics and Ancient Greek God chaos!

 

 We have a fun-filled term ahead with lots of great learning taking place from the start!

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 We will continue our drive to  improve our times tables knowledge, ready to take part in the government pilot tests in June.  Please ensure you support your child with regular practise of their times tables and of course their spellings too.  Who will be the Champion of Class 4's Rock Stars?

 

 Expectations and Extended Learning: 

Reading - Children should be reading at least five times a week. This can include books from home.  This year we have introduced a new planner. Please continue to use it in the same manner as the old reading diaries - when your child has read make a comment on that day.  If they read over the weekend, then you can use the notes section at the bottom of the page.  Planners will be checked every Monday and Star Reader stamps will be rewarded if your child has read 5 or more times.

Lucky Listeners Extended Learning - The aim of 'Lucky Listeners is to develop fluency, vocabulary and confidence to read aloud. This will be set on a Thursday and due back the following Thursday with as many signatures as possible that correspond to the amount of times your child has read the text aloud.   

Spellings and Times tables - set on a Friday.  Please remember to regularly log onto Spelling Shed, Mathletics and Times table Rockstars! 

If you have any questions about your child's learning in Class 4 please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you for your continued support,  

Mrs Hughes, Miss Hodey and the Year 4 team!
