Welcome Message

In Class 4, after an unusual and sometimes challenging autumn term we  are looking forward to a very busy Spring Term!


Our new topic is North America.   In literacy we will be reading a range of  stories set in America.  We will also be looking at the history of and geography of North America.   This will help us to write letters, diaries, newspaper reports and biographies based on what we have learned.  As always we will be taking an enquiry led approach to our learning and the development of our key skills.


In numeracy we will continue to work on out times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars and will also be securing and developing our calculation skills before moving on to fractions, decimals and percentages.  Problem solving will continue to be a key focus of our maths lessons.



Our science topic this term is Living Things followed by Adaptation and we will be studying a variety of living things that are native to the Eden Valley and North America by comparing and contrasting their habitats.


Spelling homework will continue to be given on Friday to help prepare for our spelling test.  Numeracy homework will be given out on Thursday and needs to be handed in the following Monday morning.


This term will be outdoor games.  As the weather continues to be cold and unpredictable and the children will need to have their full indoor and outdoor PE kit (including pumps or trainers) in school on the days that we do PE.
