Summer Two - Timetable.
Our half term together as a class! We still have lots of exciting learning to do before all the children go to Class 5. This half term we are going to continue to focus on our animal and nature topic. In Literacy, we are going to finish our discussion unit before moving on to a unit looking at fantasy writing. This is a great opportunity for the children to demonstrate their amazing imaginations!
In Maths, we are continuing to look at time before moving on to statistics. We will finish this year by looking at shape and direction and finishing with some consolidation. This is the term we will finally do our official multiplication check. This is the last hurdle so keep up the practice on TTRS. After the multiplication check is complete we are planning a day of celebration! So look out for that.
We also have some exciting things coming up this term in other subjects. In ART we will be making some animal prints and in design and technology, we will be making our own bridges using various materials. On the first week back we have our jubilee celebration and we also have sports day and art week this term! How exciting!
Finally, PE will continue to be on a Thursday and a Friday, and spellings and homework will stay the same. Our trip will happen this half term. We are just waiting for confirmation on this!

Another fantastic week in Class 4! We have been focusing on our diary writing skills this week. We have been learning our model text through drawing a story map and using actions.

We continued to make great strides this week. 14 children got 25/25 this week and everyone else is very close to this! Keep up the good work! Finally this week, we have had some fun in Class 4. We have been doing some coding to create letters, painting inspired by Monet and we even tried some fencing. How incredible!

We will be focusing on writing an exciting new chapter for the story but before we do that we are going to learn all about what makes an excellent story! In maths, we are continuing our unit on multiplication and division. We are going to focus heavily on Times tables this term so please continue to use times table rockstars to practise your times tables!
PE will return to Thursday and Friday so the children will require kit on these days. Homework will continue to be set on a Monday and will need to be handed in by Friday of that week. The spelling test will also be on a Friday.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
We have made it to the end of an eventful term! I am so proud of the children's efforts this term. Despite it being a difficult term they have been fantastic! We have completed our Roman Bulla project and recorded our Christmas performance. This is in the video resources centre on the website for you all to view. We had so much fun making it. As we approach the new term, Mrs Mee will be joining us as the class teaching assistant. She is an amazing hard working member of staff who is excited to start with the children. Talia has been a great help over the last few weeks and the children have really enjoyed her company. She made the children an amazing card with drawing of them all on it. Please look at it above! On a final note, Im sorry for not posting on the class page as much recently. This will resume in January.
Finally, thank you for all your amazing gifts and cards. They were really thoughtful and not deserved. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A lovely week in Class 4. The children are really enjoying Wild tribe and they are learning some key skills including using a drill and screwdriver safely. Thank you for sending the children in with the correct clothing! It allows the children to have fun and enjoy the activities without having to worry about being cold.

Welcome back Class 4! We have another exciting half term ahead of us and the count down to Christmas has begun. Homework will continue to be set on a Monday and due in on a Friday. Spelling test will also continue to be on a Friday morning. The only major change this term is that the class shall be receiving wild tribe sessions on Thursday's. How exciting! For this they shall require:
- Long sleeves top
- Waterproof coats
- Waterproof trousers.
- Clothes they don't mind getting messy.
The children need to bring their clothes with them on a Thursday to get changed into at Lunch time. These sessions are very engaging and teach the children lots of adventure and forest skills. We have also got two exciting DT projects this term as well some Christmas preparation. We have a very busy term ahead!
Thank you all again for your continued support.

This week we were also very lucky to have a visit from Reverend Lee who talked about the Holy Trinity which has been the focus of our RE unit. What an amazing term it has been. It has been a pleasure teaching Class 4 so far and I hope you all have a fantastic half term!

The second to last week of term. We have achieved so much this week to be proud of. On Wednesday we delivered our Harvest Celebration at Church. The children delivered a fantastic and confident performance and despite little practice time they didn't look nervous at all. A big thank you too all those who came to watch. If you could not make it, the performance will be on the website soon! We have also completed the London Mini Marathon this week which the children really enjoyed. We completed 2.6 miles and the children enjoyed wearing their numbers completing the challenge. Finally, this week we have been making our Roman Mosaics using paper and tiles. The children will complete these next week! One week to go. Don't forget Parents evening is on Tuesday and Thursday next week. Thank you for continued support this half term.
