Class 4 is taught by Miss Thwaite who is extremely lucky to be joined daily by Miss Mulligan, as well as Mrs Reid, Mrs Barlow and Mrs Horton at various point throughout the week. Class 4 is made up of children from both Year 4 and Year 5.
This term our topic is all about the 'Awesome Americas’. We will be taking on the role of young geographers as we study the human and physical features of both North and South America. We will be focussing particularly on the mountains and rivers that are based within these areas before taking a closer look at Brazil and the rainforest that continues to grow there. We have some excellent Art, Music and Cooking planned throughout the coming weeks whilst looking at several different countries that make up the Americas.
A few reminders for children and parents:
PE this term will be on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon. On a Monday we will be visiting Settle Swimming Pool for our Swimming lessons. Please ensure that children have their PE kits with them in school every week.
We will continue to learn the ukelele in our music lessons on a Thursday and it has been brilliant to see so many children taking these home to practice. Please can we remind children to make sure these come back into school ready for lessons.
New spellings will continue to be given on a Monday with a 20 minute foccused spelling lessons each day, these spellings will then be tested on the Friday.
Along side this, Class 4 will continue to use the accelerated reader scheme where they take books home to read. Once the book has been read we take a quiz which helps us with our comprehension and gives us the chance to read lots of new interesting books. We ask that children read 3 times at home every week and that their reading diary is signed.
Just a reminder that children should bring the following to school with them every day:
- Water bottles
- Book Bags
- Reading Books
- Homework Diaries
If you have any questions or concerns at any point throughout the year, please do not hesitate to come and talk to us before or after the school day.
