Welcome to Class 4’s page!
Our project this term is ‘Why did we change from Stone to Iron?’. This project will focus on the Stone age, the Bronze age, the Iron age and everything in between! We will be exploring how the world looked millions of years ago and how humans have changed and adapted over the years. To hook us into our project we will be researching and creating early human top trump cards and then creating authentic cave paintings, made from natural ingredients, and painted straight onto our classroom walls!!
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. Please bring your books into school by Thursday, so they can be safely returned. Your child will receive a new book each Monday.
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 Thursday this half term, so please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school every Thursday.
Swimming lessons will be every Friday this half term, so please ensure your child comes with the correct swimming kit every Friday.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.
