Welcome to Darwin class.

Welcome to Class Four, Mrs Batchelor is our teacher, Mrs Wykes and Mrs Farby are our Teaching Assistants


This term our topic will be ‘Vicious Vikings vs Anglo Saxons'. During the topic, we will be writing a variety of texts including instructions, newspaper articles, diary entries and many more. We will also be learning about electricity within Science.


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 Darwin class will have homework as well as daily reading.
