Class 4 2017 - 2018

Mrs Smith

Topics for the autumn term 2017:  
History & Geography with cross-curricular links with Literacy:  The autumn term will focus on the study of the Victorian age and social change.  This will include our residential trip to Ironbridge, where children will visit Blists Hill Victorian town, and see how the Victorians really lived.

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, and working on spelling, grammar and punctuation skills.

Art: This term will involve studying the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, linked with our Victorian topic.  Other activities will link with autumn and clay work.

Design & Technology: Children will be designing a paper carrier bag.

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. During the second half of the autumn term, we will be looking at fractions, as well as square number and prime numbers. Later in the year we will be including revision for Year Six, in preparation for their tests.

Computing: To be linked with Music in musical composition.

Science: To be confirmed with Mrs Marsh.

Religious Education: The focus is on Christianity.

Music: Work will include musical composition, using computer software.

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 Friday afternoons. PE sessions are outdoors when weather permits, or in the school hall, and for this half term will include dance.  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.
