Welcome to class 4’s page!
Our project this term is ‘Why do we need rainforests?’ focusing on rainforests around the world with a specific focus on the Amazon rainforest. We are looking at Manaus, Brazil in particular as this is the focus for our class novel, Journey to the River Sea. We have been hooked into our project by turning the entire classroom in to a rainforest, making rainforest animal puppets, sketching and colouring animals with oil pastels, making rain shakers, going on a bug hunt outside, lots of outdoor rainforest challenges and more!
We would love to see more reading medals in Class 4. Your child will get a certificate and a medal for reading at home – a bronze medal for reading 50 times at home, a silver medal for reading 125 times at home and a gold medal for reading 250 times at home. Please listen your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. We have given out some bronze medals already and we’d love to give out even more.
Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings and great scores in their maths madness tests.
Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned in school the following Thursday. They also have 6 pieces of project homework to complete. We love to see these as they are always amazing – they go straight up on our project homework display in the cloakroom for everybody to see. You have until the end of term to complete all six.
PE lessons are every Tuesday, so please make sure your child has their PE kit in school each week.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see me.
