Class 4/5

Welcome to our Class 4/5 Page!

Mrs Denyer and Mrs Razaq

This year Ms Denyer and Ms Razaq are your child’s class teachers and Ms Pearson is the teaching assistant.

The school day starts at 8:45am and learning starts immediately after so it is vital that children arrive on time. The school day ends at 3:05pm.

 

Current learning

This term our topic is ‘Frozen Planet’. Within this topic, children will be identifying the key features of climate change.  They will learn about the Arctic and Antarctica, the tropics and making comparisons with other parts of the world. In science we will learn to observe and measure the changing states of materials, focusing how water freezes and melts. In Art and Design, the children will use a range of media and techniques to represent the polar regions, ice forms and polar animals. In History, the children will learn about Polar exploration and will be able to write a biography of a famous explorer. In RE we are focusing on Biblical stories from Christianity.

 

Important days

PE – Our PE days are every Thursday. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!

Homework – Homework is handed out every Friday (when possible) and is due in by the following Wednesday. Please ensure that you do your homework at home as it ensures that you get extra practice. It’s so important! Homework will consist of spellings, reading and maths homework. Children will also have a termly topic project to complete which hopefully will encourage them to be imaginative and creative.

 

Reading books – Children need to bring their reading book and reading diary to school every day. They will read to an adult at least once a week. Children are encouraged to read at home at least 3 times a week. When your child reads, please make a note in their reading diary as your child is rewarded with a dojo and a sticker for their reading chart.
