Welcome to Class 4's page! Here you will find any relevant information about what is going on in our class including homework and what we have been getting up to on our learning journey.
Homework should be consolidating what we have been learning in class; hence it should not take too long to complete. If your child finds the homework difficult please do not hesitate to let me know or leave a comment in the book so that we can focus on working on those skills some more at school. Homework will consist of 3 pieces - a maths or literacy task accompanied by a spelling list and times table practice. Please find details of your child's homework on the website if you are unsure of what it is your child needs to complete. Homework should be handed in no later than Thursday and the spelling and times table test will be on a Friday. Please also encourage your child to read and question your child on what they are reading to ensure they have a good understanding of what they are reading.
In Class 4 we use the Class Dojo points system where every child has their own icon and children will be awarded points for doing the right thing, good answers and working hard. As easily as points can be awarded, these can also be taken away. Each week the children will be given the opportunity to earn these points and then at the end of the week there will be a small prize for the boy and girl who has earnt the most amount of points.
During Term 5 we will be looking at the Anglo-Saxons - this will be incorporating elements of Geography, History, Art and Design & Technology. We are also starting this term by looking at a myth from the same time period - Beowulf. Therefore the children are given as many opportunities to understand the Anglo-Saxons as it is incorporated into our writing too.
Throughout the Summer Term we will also be looking at 'Living Things and their Habitats.' This will include looking at both plants and animals. It will involve looking at the different ways the species can be classified.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to ask us.
