Welcome to the Spring Term.

 

Our topic in Class 4 this term is `Captain James Cook’. To enhance children’s understanding and enjoyment of the topic, we would like to link it to home learning and we would very much appreciate your support with this. 

 

Children have been asked to carry out their own research on Captain Cook and to present this information in creative ways.  There are no rules on how the finished project will look (or sound!).  Some children may choose to draw and write; others may prefer to use computers, create models or songs, or perform drama.  The possibilities are endless!   There are many local sources of information which we hope families will enjoy accessing together.  Time and resources will also be available in school. 

 

At the end of term, Class 4 will host an open afternoon, where every child will present their finished project.  Families will be invited to share this event with us.  We want all children to be proud of their learning and to enjoy showcasing it to others, so please encourage them to take pride in this opportunity.  This is a chance for all children to use their imagination and to express their individuality.  We hope families will also enjoy being directly involved with the project. 

 

Alongside our topic, we have a lot of exciting things happening in Class 4 this term. We have started reading a new book, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, which the children have already engaged very well with. In Maths, we are focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages, before moving onto geometry. If your child would like to complete any additional work at home, please encourage them to do so. We would be more than happy to see any work that they have completed.

 

In addition to the project, we would like children to continue to read as much as possible and to record it in their reading records. Reading records are due in to school every Monday and will be checked each week. Children can read on their own or with an adult and they may record this by themselves. Please also encourage your child to access `Times Table Rockstars’ as much as possible when at home.

 

Finally, we ask that PE kits are sent into school every Monday morning and taken home on Friday afternoons. PE kits should consist of a white t-shirt, black/navy blue shorts and plimsolls.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Many thanks for your continued support,

 Mr Evans and Mrs Pearson
