Welcome to the Autumn Term.

 

Our topic in Class 4 this half term is `A Child's War’. This half term we will learn about various aspects of the war including:

- The events leading up to the war and the role that Hitler had

-Rationing

- The Blitz

-Evacuation

-D Day

-Anne Frank

-The Holocaust

And much more.

 

 

At the end of our topic, we hope to have a V-Day celebration where the children can come to school dressed in WW2 stlye clothing. This will be a celebration of all the hard work the children have put into the topic. They have already made a fantastic start and we have been blown away by their enthusiasm to learn about these important historical events.

 

Alongside our topic, we have a lot of exciting things happening in Class 4 this term. We have started reading a new book, 'The Lost Magician', which the children have already engaged very well with. In Maths, we are focusing on place value. We are recapping the basic skills and ensuring children feel confident with this. In English, we will be reading a book called 'Anne Frank'. The children will use this as a basis for diary writing. After this, we will read 'The Strange Case of Origami Yoda'. The children will complete various writing and grammar tasks based on this very exciting book!

 

We would like children to continue to read every night and to record it in their reading records. Reading records are due in to school every Monday and Thursday, 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 children come to school in their PE kit on Tuesdays.

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

Many thanks for your continued support,

 Miss Dixon and Mrs Pearson
