Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to Class 4JB! This term there will be plenty of exciting things to look forward to. Our main topic this term is history based and we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, including a trip to York to visit Yorvik and Dig on Wednesday 15th November.
Our novel study this term is The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo and there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the novel through drama, reading and writing.
Further topic areas include: sound and electricity in science, sketching and painting in art, making an Anglo-Saxon village in DT, internet Safety in IT, RE & PSHE lessons, Spanish with Senora Simmons and PE.
You will be taking a letter home with you about homework in 4JB and this includes: Reading 5 times per week to take part in our reading quest, learning a times table given to you by Mrs Barber (children are expected to know all of their times tables confidently by the end of Y4) learning weekly spellings and activities related to our topics which are handed in on a fortnightly basis. Homework standards have always been very high in 4JB and I'm sure you will also do a fantastic job with this too!
You will need to bring your PE kit to school for lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Each week I will choose a 'star of the week' based on good behaviour, work and attitude. The star of the week will have the opportunity to take Leo home for the weekend to look after him so he doesn't get lonely in the classroom. They can also complete his diary describing his exciting adventures.
