Welcome to Class 4!
Welcome to Class Four, Mrs Batchelor is our teacher, Mrs Wykes, Mrs Lakey and Miss Parker are our teaching assistants.
This term our topic will be ‘The Titanic'. We will be reading 'Titanic Survivor' and 'Kasper, prince of cats' and using these and our topic as inspiration for writing instructions, explanatory texts, balanced arguments and many more. We will also be learning about life cycles in our Science work.
Years five and six are important years as we prepare for the SATs and the transition into secondary school. To help the children with this please encourage them to read at home and then quiz them on what they have read. Please use ‘why’, ’how’, ‘how do you know’ and ‘what makes you think that’ as sentence starters.
Times tables are really important in our Maths work so rehearsing them will really help (times tables rocks stars is brilliant for this; all children have a login). Every Friday the children attempt to defeat a Superhero, please encourage them to practice for them.
Please come to school in your PE kit on Thursdays and Fridays.
Each term Class 4 will have homework as well as daily reading and weekly spellings to learn, spelling tests will be on a Friday.
