Class 4 2017 - 2018

Mrs Smith

Topics for the spring term 2018:  
History & Geography with cross-curricular links with Literacy:  The Tudors

Literacy: This will focus on cross-curricular links with our topic, giving opportunities to write in different styles, as well as including grammar, punctuation and spelling.  We will also be developing creative writing, and working on spelling, grammar and punctuation skills.

Art: Tudor art and 3D work on Tudor architecture

Design & Technology: This will take place after half term.

Maths:  Lessons will follow areas identified in the National Curriculum, building on previous learning.  All children need to focus on knowing their times tables up to x 12. As the term progresses, we will be including revision for Year Six, in preparation for their tests. Work will also include conversion of fractions to decimals and understanding percentages.

Computing: Work will focus on e-safety, and the importance of how to keep safe online.

Science: Micro-organisms during the first half term, followed by Evolution and Inheritance in the second half term. 

Religious Education: A-cross the world - looking at symbols of faith and religion.

Music: Complete musical composition work using IT. Looking at the BBC 'Ten Pieces'.

French: Work in French will cover conversational French, revision of previous work and vocabulary building.

P.E. Class Four will be continuing to have their PE sessions on Friday afternoons. For the first half term, they will be taking part inJujitsu lessons with a trained instructor for one of the sessions. PE sessions are outdoors when weather permits, or in the school hall, and for this half term will include dance.  Please ensure that your child has their named PE kit in school every day. Please supply a hair bobble if your child has long hair, so they can tie it back and, for health and safety reasons, jewellery should not be worn.

READING: Please support your child by hearing them read aloud on a regular basis at home.  Even though many children in Years Five and Six have good reading skills, they still need the practice and the opportunity to develop their comprehension skills, discussing what they read and the new vocabulary they meet.  Each child has a Reading Journal, where they should record when they read and what they read.  They can also use the book to note new words and their meanings. They will also be heard during school time by a variety of adults.

Please contact me if you have any queries and we can arrange an appointment at a mutually convenient time. If more appropriate, a phone call can be made.
