Welcome to Class 4
Class 4 is made up of 10 Year 4 children and 23 Year 5's. We are taught by Mrs Harwood with help from Mrs Hounslow and Mrs Oddie.
Mrs Harwood loves Harry Potter as you will discover. She even has her own Youtube channel called Mrs Homework. Mrs Hounslow is an amazing baker and this helps us when we do DT. We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been up to this year.
Other important information
Please have P.E. kits in school all week. We will aim to have P. E. on Mondays and Wednesdays each week. The daily mile will take place every day so we will need trainers and old clothes for when it's muddy. In case of chilly weather, please bring a sweatshirt/fleece and tracksuit , leggings or jogging bottoms for outdoor lessons. We will be aiming to have most of our PE lessons outside. In the Spring Term we are hoping to be going swimming so swimming costumes, towels, swimming hats and goggles (if wanted) will be needed. More information on the afternoons we will be going will be given in the Spring term. This year swimming will be every afternoon for a 2 week block.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be completed by the following Thursday. This will be set through Google Classroom. Spellings will be handed out and put on the website on a Friday and children will be tested the following Friday, words will be from the Year 4 and 5 National Curriculum spelling lists. Times tables will be given every Friday. Children will be tested on their times table knowledge the following Friday. Sheets and games can be downloaded from the links below or on Google Classroom.

What is Britain?
It's a jam packed term, this term we are going to be learning all about the UK. We will be looking at counties, mountains and rivers which make up our wonderful country and how immigration has shaped out heritage. In history, we will be looking at the cotton industry in Lancashire and how it helped to put us on the map! In our DT topic, we will be researching about pastries and creating our own British pastry creations. In art, we will be creating landscape collages using the amazing view from our school. Ukulele's are back this term for us to practise and possibly even take home. All of our homework is on Google Classroom and this will supplement our learning in class. What a great topic to be celebrating our Queen's jubilee celebrations with too!
Some parents have been asking about the Maths we have been covering in class. I will put some crib sheets, worksheets and websites for the topics we will be covering. This is completely optional.
In maths, we will be learning our times tables all year so we can get faster at them. We have been learning all about how important our times tables are and how useful they are in maths. Alongside our Times table Rockstars work, we have been practising our groovy dance moves and using our incredible singing voices to learn our tables facts. Why don't you join in at home?
Here are some great games you can play too! Can you get faster at your tables?
