Class 4

Class 4 is a mixed year 5 and year 6 group. They are currently taught by Melissa Pinfield, the Deputy Headteacher.  Mr Hunt works with the class on Monday afternoons teaching Art or DT and PHSME.  He also takes Year 5 for maths.  They are supported by teaching assistant Heather Thomson.

Information from the teacher

Childline Schools Service

Here is the weekly timetable for class 4. Here is the topic web for the term.  The topic for the Spring term is “Worlds of Wonder”.

Although PE is timetabled for set days, please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times as inclement weather can effect our timetabling. Can pupils also ensure that they have a waterproof coat in school as we are often outside for outdoor learning.

Homework 17th January 2020

  1. Work on your reading. There are a few yet to quiz so make sure you are still reading as often as possible .  Aim to read at least 5x a week.
  2. Work on your 8x tables and recap your 4x tables on the TT rock stars site. You can always change the time you answer your questions in if that helps.
  3. Work on the statutory spellings for Year 3 and Year 4. Try different ways to learn them to make sure you are secure on how to spell them.

Visit to the Eden Project

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday 27th November we visited the Eden Project as part of our Brazil topic.  We were brilliant botonists for the day and investigated the relative size of leaves in the Mediterranean biome and the rainforest biome.  Here we are measuring leaves and looking at what a coffee bean is really like. Thank you to Mr Caboche for driving us there.

The Real Pirates of the Caribbean docudrama

To conclude their learning about Edward Teach, a real pirate of the Caribbean, Class 4 has made this docudrama. The children wrote the scripts, drew the pictures, created the props and performed the drama scenes; we hope you enjoy it.
