Class 4 2018 - 2019

Miss Wells

Welcome to Class 4!

 

Our topic during this term is 'The Great Plague'. The children will be travelling all the way back to 1665 to learn about the Great Plague. They will learn all about how the Great Plague started and how it spread. The children will also investigate the sympotoms of the Great Plague and how the specialist doctors tried to cure it. We will also explore other details of the Plague.

In English, we will be focusing on the text 'My Story: The Great Plague' by Pamela Oldfield. This will tie in with our topic. We will also explore texts such as The Pied Piper of Hamelin. We will look at a range of genres including diaries.

We will work on improving our spelling, punctuiation and grammar throughout English and other curriculum subjects. Spellings will be given out as homework each week. The children are to practise their spellings for homework so that they are ready for their weekly spelling test every Friday.

In Maths, we will start by looking at Number and Place Value up to thousands. The children will regularly develop their number skills be recapping counting in 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10. The children will also start to begin counting in multiples of 6, 7, and 9. We will also explore counting in multiples of 25 and 1000. In Maths, the children will also be regulalry using their skills to solve mathematical problems.

All children have a log in for Times Table Rockstars so please access this if possible as it is a fun way for the children to practise their times tables.

In R.E, we will be starting the topic of 'People'. The children will begin by exploring their own family tree and then they will look at Jesus' family tree.

In Science, we will be exploring 'Electricity and Sound'. The children will begin to understand the basic components needed in an electrical circuit. The children will be able to make their own cirucit using bulbs and buzzers!

Important Information

P.E- The children will have P.E on a Wednesday afternoon each week. Please make sure that your child brings in their P.E kit for this.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. This will consist of spellings, times tables and relevant activities (linking to what we have been learning).

Please encourage your child to read at home as this is important to their overall progress. Please sign your child's reading diary at least twice per week.

Please check the school website, twitter and newsletters for any unpcoming events.

Thank you,

Miss Wells & Mrs Ollier
