Welcome to Class 4
Hello everyone! Welcome back and welcome to year 4!
Our Class 4 motto is "Shine Bright Like a Diamond!"
We have an exciting first half term planned and hope that you are raring to go! We will be starting our new topics straight away and can't wait to get stuck in. Our first topic is The Iron Man. The children have created some amazing models of the Iron Man, which are now on display in the classroom.
In maths, we are learning how to partition numbers and in English we will be writing a diary entry and newspaper report about the Iron Man.
Our next visit, will be to the local church where we will be learning all about Christianity.
In Science this half term we are learning all about states of matter. The children will be learning how to identify solids, liquids and gases, modelling the three different states and carrying out investigations into melting and evaporation.
Spelling is one of the essential components of successful writing. Being confident at spelling leads to confidence in all aspects of literacy. The ability to recognise links between word relationships has been proven to aid comprehension skills.
Each Friday, Class 4 are given six spellings to take home and learn for the following week. Please, could you spend some time each day practicing the spellings with your child?
Congratulations to our reading competition winner! Each time your child reads more than four times in a week their name will be entered into a prize draw at the end of the half term. One name will be drawn out of the hat and the winner will receive a book of their choice.
Congratulations to the winners of our Halloween competition! Well done to everyone that entered!! Have a fantastic half term! We look forward to seeing you back at school on Monday 4th November.
Thank you to those children that have completed our extreme reading homework. We have had some really unusual pictures. Take a look at our teachers extreme reading.
