Welcome to Year 5!
We have some fantastic activities planned for the year ahead within our half-termly creative topics and many home learning opportunities if you are self isolating or... more
Welcome to Year 4 with Mrs Blomeley and Miss Laitl!
We are looking forward to the year ahead and the action packed topics that we have planned. Our first topic is How did the Romans change Britain?
During this term we will have a Roman Workshop, with a visit to our classroom from a real Roman Soldier! He promises to bring Roman history alive with his travelling museum of hand made replica Roman artefacts and enlist the children to take part in a Roman timeline drama!
In addition to our varied curriculum subjects, Year 4 children will take part in weekly swimming sessions every Thursday. Their other PE day will be each Tuesday. Year 4 children are fortunate to receive music tuition from Tameside Music Services and this year they will be learning how to play the Penny Whistle each Wednesday.
Homework in Year 4 will consist of the following:
Spellings, which will be handed out each Friday, with a task to write sentences for four of the words. MyMaths will be set weekly to consolidate the learning we have been doing in class during the week. Each half term there will be a creative homework task that is linked to the current topic. Seesaw is an online journal where you can complete activities that have been set, as well as adding videos and voice recordings to supplement your answers. Other online learning will include Times Table Rockstars, Education City, Linguafun (for Spanish) and Letterjoin, which is our handwriting scheme.
Our aim is for all children to read for pleasure. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to endorse this value by encouraging your child to read with you at home daily.
Look out for our class blogs for regular snapshots of our activities and learning opportunities.
