Welcome to class 4’s page!
Our project this term is ‘Why did the Vikings dare to invade Britain?’ focusing on the Vikings, what made them special and their victorious battles. We have been hooked into our project by making Viking shields and axes, by re-enacting a huge Viking battle on the play ground, making Viking bread and Viking stew, writing in Viking runes and much more!
We would love to see more reading in Class 4. Your child will get a prize for reading at home – a bronze prize for reading 50 times at home, a silver prize for reading 125 times at home and a gold prize 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 prize 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 passing their times table test.
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 Wednesday, so please make sure your child has their PE kit in school each week. Swimming lessons are every Friday for this half term.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.
Miss Wheeler and Mrs Blair.
