Welcome to Class 4!
Our teachers are Mr Oddie, who will teach mainly Maths and English, and Mrs Rigby for the other subjects. Mrs Holroyd will teach R.E. on a Monday afternoon. Mrs Newton is our teaching assistant and is in Class 4 for most of the week to support our learning.
In our class we now have 32 children altogether.There are 19 Year 5 and 13 Year 4 children.
Please have P.E. kits in school all week. This half term we will be doing games skills on Tuesday and dance on Wednesdays to start with. Our first swimming session will be on Wednesday 29th November. All children will need to wear a swimming hat and trunks or costume. If you need to wear goggles for swimming, please send a letter into school.
Keep checking our web page to find out what is going on in our class this year.
If you have any concerns at all, please feel free to ring us at school or come in and talk to us (before or after school is usually best).
We have already started our next cross - curricular topic " Sparks Might Fly".
We will be making some decorative lights in D & T lessons, so you'll need two AA batteries. School will provide everything else.
Topic Homework Task: Complete an electricity survey in your home. Go through each room and look for items that use electricity. Make a note of whether they run on mains electricity or are battery operated. If they do run on batteries, are these rechargeable? Which rooms have the most items? You can present your survey in a choice of ways. For example, it could be a list, a table, a tally chart or a graph. You could write a summary of your findings. Think carefully about the layout and the design to show your information clearly. This homework is due in by Monday December 11th.
Throughout the year, you can practise and improve your keyboarding skills. This is a fun program and all the instructions are there for you, so you can enjoy developing your skills independently. Good luck and have fun!
We have completed the first BBC Terrific Scientific investigation. Please look at the website at home and show your parents what it's all about. You can look at all the results from schools around the UK on the interactive map. We will be doing the next country wide investigation shortly.
