Class 4

 summer 21
Showing 1-1 of 1

If you wish to know further information relating to the curriculum in Class 4 please do not hesitate to speak to Miss Guirdham, the class teacher via Class Dojo.



During this term we will be covering a variety of topics such as place value, decimals, fractions, measures and geometry. As well as consolidating our skills in multiplication and division. Quick recall is essential for these topics, therefore children should be practicing times tables and number facts regularly at home alongside Times Table Rockstars.

. . 


Our first English topic this term is ‘Stories with dilemmas’. We will be looking at a few texts however our main book will be James and the Giant Peach! We will write our own stories too! Our second topic involves looking at play scripts. 

We are currently reading A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket in Class 4. The children have been really enjoying the mystery so far.  


Religious Education  

We will be exploring ‘Life in the Risen Christ’. Reflecting on Jesus’ resurrection and what this means to us.



We will be investigating and learning about the digestive system! Including all the different functions within the system. We will also look at types of teeth and food chains! There are lots of opportunities to use experiments in this topic.



This terms PSHE will be taught by Miss Gill and will cover a variety of issues and topics for example, how to recognise pressure and strategies to deal with this and what can affect our thoughts and feelings.



This term we will be focusing on ‘Still life’ and researching artists such as Paul Cezanne. We will develop out sketching and observational skills.


Design Technology

Starting with the Eatwell plate, we will research ‘Global foods’ and plan a product.



This term we are going to continue learning to play the glockenspiels with Mrs Naylor.  


Physical Education

Class 4 PE days are Monday and Thursday with One Goal. Please ensure that child comes in their PE kit on these days. Pumps/school shoes should be worn inside on school days. Trainers should be in school at all times, so the class can use the track. Thank you for supporting this.



French will be led by Miss England based upon the topic of ‘Where in the World?’



Each week, the class will receive English and Maths homework via Class Dojo, paper copies are also available for children to take home if they are struggling to access Dojo. There may also be other subject tasks e.g. Science or for children to complete. Homework is due in each Wednesday. Please support this weekly homework with your children’s regular reading, use of TTRS and Read Theory as well as Bug Club.


Home Reading

Please try to read daily with your child.  Each week children are required to have three signatures in their reading record to show that they have read, as our new Bug Club scheme is up and running the online books can also be used to facilitate this as long as the reading record has still been signed.
