Welcome to Class 4

Class Teacher: Miss Scutt

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Forster (Monday and Wednesday) and Mrs Turner (Tuesday).

We have lots of interesting and exciting things to learn this half term. Please look below to find information on the Class 4 curriculum, activities, timetable, spellings and homework.

This half term...

Our Learning Challenge question this half term is 'What happens to the food we eat?' and our class text is The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers. 

Homework, Spellings and Activities

Homework

Homework books are sent home on Wednesday and expected to be returned to school on each Monday. Children should complete one homework task, of their choice, from the menu each week. If your child struggles to complete their homework at home they can attend a lunch time homework club on Wednesdays.

There will also be activities set on My Maths and DB Primary, which the children can choose to complete to develop their skills and learning at home.

Spellings

Spelling lists will be sent home every Monday and the children will be tested on the spellings from that week on the Thursday. Children are expected to practice their spellings at home in preparation for the test. The spelling journal has a 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' grid for children to use when practising. Please bring your spelling journal to school everyday. You will need this for our spelling lessons. You can also use the DB Primary website to practise your spellings at home.

Physical Education

Physical Education lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesdays we will be learning Hockey with Miss Scutt and on Wednesday we will be learning Karate with Mr Bennett. 

Children are expected to have full P.E kit in school for both sessions and suitable outdoor clothing for any lessons which are outdoors. If the weather conditions are poor P.E will take place in the school hall. 

Indoor: white t-shirt, navy shorts, white socks, black plimsolls.

Outdoor: white t-shirt, navy jogging bottoms, school hoodie, white socks, trainers.

Reading Records

Reading books and a signed reading record should be brought into school daily. Children will earn praise points if they read every night and if their reading record is signed. 

Gospel

Class Four are participating in Gospel singing this year, every Friday morning. Our wonderful teacher, Mel, is teaching us how to perform and show off our voices.

Useful Links for Children

Autumn Term One Learning

In Autumn Term One we have worked incredibly hard and many children visited Mrs Webb to show their excellent work. In English, we have developed our undestanding of fronted adverbials and prepositional phrases. In Maths, we are now able to add and subtract 4 digit numbers by using equipment and formal methods. We have also extended our understanding of the world by exploring parliament and holding our own debate. In Art, we have created Roman mosaics and in history we have explored why the Romans wanted to invade Britain.

Mental Health Week

This week the children participated in well being activities to help their minds relax and focus on the environment around them. Here are some photos of when we practised our deep breathing by blowing bubbles.

Welcome to Year 4

The children have had a fantastic start to the year already and have earned 16 class points this week for their excellent reading at home, behaviour in school and academic work. This week we have focussed on the presentation of our work making sure our handwriting is our best and we are setting out our work correctly. In Maths, we have been exploring four digit numbers and understanding what each number represents (take a look at the pictures below). In addition, we have explored our feelings about year 4 and identified what has gone well so far. Keep up the good work Class 4!
