Dear Parents

We hope you are all well and have had a lovely Christmas holiday – welcome back

This is what Class 4 will be covering this term. Please also see the curriculum map which accompanied this letter for more detail.

Topics – Our topic for the 1st half term is Brilliant Brunel and we will also learn about Forces in science. For the 2nd half term, our topic is Amazing Journeys and we will learn about living things and their habitats in Science.

Homework – will be set on a Thursday and will need to be completed by the following Tuesday. There will usually be spellings, X tables and reading (x15 mins daily) as well as a quest (project) which is split into weekly tasks.

Reading – please continue to hear your child read. It makes such a difference to their reading in all curriculum areas if they are heard at home regularly. The children have reading log books and when your child has collected five signatures, they will receive a golden ticket which will be entered into a weekly draw where two pupils will have the chance to win 15 minutes of golden time.

PE will be gymnastics in the hall with Mr Tyrrell on a Thursday and an outdoor netball PE session will be taught on a Friday by Mr Tyrrell. There will also be swimming every afternoon week commencing 9th January 2023.PLEASE NOTE: The Thursday PE session will change to a Tuesday after half term.

(Come to school in PE kit on Thursdays & Fridays-please wrap up warm for outdoor PE)

Water bottles – please make sure your child has a full, named water bottle in school which we will send home on a Friday for cleaning.

For more detailed information on each subject area, please see the curriculum map which was emailed with this letter.
