Welcome to the Year 4/5 class page!  


Summer Term                                           

Welcome back.

I hope you have all had a chance to relax over the holidays and enjoy the spring weather.

Our first topic will be the Romans and we will learn about the incredible organisation of the roman system. Romans is a huge topic so we will look at many aspects of this period particularly the legacy left behind in Britain.

Our literacy lessons will be based around the ‘Jane Considine - Write Stuff approach’. Grammar and vocabulary will be taught alongside the literacy lessons and pupils will have a weekly spelling test on Friday.

In maths pupils will recap written methods for multiplication and division. We will explore decimal numbers and fractions and shape using manipulatives to understand concepts. Pupils will have a weekly times table, mental arithmetic test and should try to work on the timetable they find challenging and the speed of their number fact recall. 

Maths with manipulatives

In science we will be investigating the following topics: Living things and their habitats and will be doing experiments and investigations into these.

Practical science lesson

The class have PE lessons on Monday afternoons so please make sure your child is dressed for PE on a Monday. For PE lessons please ensure that children with earrings have removed them for safety.

Year 5’s will have guitar lessons on a Wednesday so please encourage your child to practise and ensure their instrument is in school for their lesson. In music Year 4s will have recorder lessons on Wednesdays.

Pupils will be expected to read at home and school regularly and keep a record in their reading journal. Children will be asked to complete a book summary (reading review) to show their understanding of the text read before moving onto another chapter or book.

Homework will be set on Fridays and pupils will also be asked to complete topic based projects termly. As always if you need to speak with me just catch me before/after school or make an appointment with the office if you need a longer meeting.
