Miss Burke and Mrs Shaw
A big warm welcome to all of King smith class! I hope that you had a fantastic summer break and are well rested for the year ahead!
This year pupils are kick starting their term by following the adventures of the famous outlaw
Pupils will be engaging with a fun style comic book , following Robin on his adventures in the quest to steal from the rich and give to the poor. Mr Bates will even be helping us with our own forest style adventures as we embark on a half term of forest school activities!
This half term we will be focusing on uplevelling our vocabulary and creating exciting pieces of fiction style writing. We have already started working hard on our character descriptions and are building up to writing our own adventures of Robin Hood.
In maths pupils will be focusing on strengthening their problem solving skills, while developing in all other areas of the maths curriculum. This half term we will be building on our ability to calculate mentally, round numbers and recall multiplication facts..
As we head through year 4, it is really key that pupils make a good effort to learn their times tables all the way up to 12x12! Remember to check out the links below for times table games and log in to your my maths accounts for more times table work.
During reading sessions, we will be working hard to develop comprehension skills using fiction and non-fiction texts.
Our library is currently out of use while we develop it into an exciting reading zone, so school reading books will be issued next week.
Please remember to read with your child on a daily basis - there are RED prizes to be won!
This half term we are beginning to learn the recorder during music lessons. Pupils will be learning to read music and recall the notes in order to perform a range of pieces. Recorders are provided for pupils.
In DT pupils will be using clay to recreate a medieval style pot, and will use pattern and paint to decorate.
As part of our WOW Day we would like pupils to bring in a shoe box to build a model forest - more details to follow.
As a school , we have signed up to a new and exciting PSHE curriculum that will cover all aspect of life with pupils . We are excited about this project as it will help develop pupils socially and morally.
