Welcome to Class 4 Owl!

 

SCHOOL YEAR 2021-2022

 

Class 4 is a mix of Year 5 and 6 pupils. Our class team is Mrs Law (Class Teacher) Monday - Thursday and Mr Carpenter (Class Teacher) on a Friday. We are supported in class by our Teaching Assistants Mrs Holloway, Mr Holliday and Mrs Turbill. 

Homework

Spelling: The children receive spellings on a Monday (listed in planners). These are practised in school and at home throughout the week. 

Reading: Children are encouraged to read at least 3 times a week. We have a reading reward scheme in class. The more you read, the more rewards you receive!

Maths: An overview of the weeks Maths objectives are given, with a few examples to try at home. 

Times Tables Rockstars: All children have their own log on to this website and are encouraged to practise their times tables in order to become fluent and confident.

Our Y6 pupils also receive some SATs style homework to prepare them for their end of year assessments.

PE days:

Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday (with Mrs Taylor from Sporting Start) and a Thursday (with Mr Holliday). Children are encouraged to come to school on these days in their PE kit. 

Autumn 1 (2021) 

 

Our first whole school theme was ‘Horrible History!’, which we were very excited about. Class 4’s history focus was on WW1.

In English, we based most of our work on WW1 and the novel War Horse (by Michael Morpurgo).

We wrote poems, a diary, a letter and a propaganda poster/speech.

We extended our history learning by studying the causes of WW1, countries involved, life in the trenches, the U-boat War and the Christmas truce.

In Art, we created pictures of poppies using different media and we developed our clay skills through the making of poppies (inspired by the ceramic artist Paul Cummins).

   

   

 

Autumn 2 (2021)

 

Our whole school theme is ‘Into the Night!’ In English we will be basing most of our reading and writing on the novel ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell Boyce. This book is about a boy called Liam Digby who wants to go to space. Liam's unusual size gets him into lots of adventures (and trouble) along the way. We will be writing a space themed story, a formal letter and a newspaper report. Alongside this, we will be studying mountains in Geography, Space in Science and creating our own marble run in DT.
