Class 4 2018 - 2019

Mrs Smith

Topics for the autumn term 2018:  
History & Geography with cross-curricular links with Literacy:  The Rainforests of the world

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, including building character, plots and settings within story telling, and working on spelling, grammar and punctuation skills.

Art: Drawing & shading skills / links to rainforest leaves and plants

Design & Technology: This will take place in the second half of the 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: Revision of basic skills; graphics and presentation skills

Science: Classification of Living Things

Religious Education: Christianity focus - 'Good News' and 'How do Christians describe God?'

Music: The History of Music

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 Fridays. PE sessions are outdoors when weather permits, or in the school hall.  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.
