Welcome to Class 4
Class 4 is made up of 10 Year 5 children and 22 Year 4s. We are taught by Mr. Hammond with help from Mrs Hounslow and
Mr. Hammond loves the outdoors and even lives on a boat to be closer to wildlife. He loves to feed his swans, geese and ducks breakfast every morning. Mrs Hounslow is an amazing baker and this helps us when we do DT. We hope you enjoy looking at what we have been doing during this year.
Google Classroom - As well as our web site, Class 4 will be using Google Classroom's site for links to homeworks for Maths and English as well as our exciting, fortnightly creative curriculum challenges.
Please make sure that you can connect to Google Classroom as we will be using it much more this year to track our out-of-school activities. If you are struggling please let us know so that we can help you.
Other important information
P.E. - Please have P.E. kits in school all week. We will aim to have P. E. twice each week on Monday and Thursday Afternoons. In case of chilly weather, please include in your PE kit bag a plain sweatshirt/fleece and plain, long black leggings or jogging bottoms for outdoor lessons (we will be aiming to have most of our PE lessons outside).
Swimming - In the Spring Term (20th February) 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 later in the year. This year swimming will be every afternoon for a 2 week block.
Homework - English and Maths Homework will be posted weekly on Google Classroom on Monday evening (unless it is a bank holiday) and must be completed by the following Monday. This will be evidenced and assessed through Google Classroom.
Spellings - These will be posted on the website on a Friday, children will be tested on the following Friday on word selections from the appropriate National Curriculum spelling lists. We will be giving spelling guidance using The Spelling League Program while children will be completing daily start of day spelling grid activities to support learning completed at home.
Multiplication tables - will be enhanced through a weekly paper Multiplication challenge. Children will be tested on their multiplication tables knowledge every Friday. During the week, children will also be receiving several Timestables Rockstars online sessions to enhance learning. This should be supplemented at home by accessing this site using your log in (this will be supplied).
Keep checking our web page to find out what is going on in our class this year.
If you have any concerns or questions at all, please feel free to ring us at school or come in and talk to us (after school is usually best).
