Welcome to Class 4’s page!
Our project this term is ‘Why should we care about the rainforest?’. This project will be all about the rainforest. We will be exploring and answering the following questions: ‘What are the layers of life?’; ‘What’s being covered up’; and ‘What can we do?’ To hook us into our project we will be exploring where in the world we can find rainforests and creating our own rainforest art.
Our aim in Class 4 is to create life-long readers! We are passionate about seeing our children develop into keen readers, who read for enjoyment. To help us on this journey we will be offering out rewards incentives, which your child will receive 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 to your child read at least 3-times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record.
Your child will be given a spelling quiz and a Maths Madness quiz every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for increased scores or full marks in spellings and Maths Madness quizzes.
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 Thursday this half term (with the amazing Freedom Factory!), so please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school on this day.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.
Mr Clarke and Mrs Blair
