with Mrs Barber, Mrs Simmons & Mrs Newman
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.
Spring Term 2020
Happy New Year 4JB! I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday and you are ready for another exciting term in Class 4JB! This term there will be plenty of exciting things to look forward to. Our main topic this term is science based where we will be learning all about 'Living Things’.
Our novel study this term is one of my all-time favourite children’s books: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore the novel through drama, reading and writing. Further topic areas include: Harris Burdick art and poetry writing; mountains, rivers and biomes in geography; using Photostory in IT; RE & PSHE lessons including taking part in a PSHE linking project with Herringthorpe Junior School (a trip to New York Stadium is planned on Friday 31st January to begin our project) Spanish with Senora Simmons and PE lessons- gymnastics and tag rugby as well as orchestra every Friday. Please remember to bring your PE kit on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday, including outdoor pumps/trainers.
Homework in 4JB includes: reading 5 times per week, 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. Details of this homework can be found on our class page below too. Homework standards have always been very high in 4JB and I'm sure you will continue to do a fantastic job with this too!
Well done to all the children who have managed to achieve their Bronze Reading Award at the end of the autumn term. Remember you need to read 6 books at home on our Reading Challenge list detailed below on the website to achieve this- come on 4JB let’s have a new year’s reading resolution and make it your goal to read more this year!
