Hello and welcome to Class 10! We are a class of brilliant and hardworking Year 4 children and our teacher is called Mrs Cassidy. We will also be taught by Mrs Baker on Fridays.
There are lots of exciting things planned for our first half term including our Topic: ‘Stories from other Cultures’. This is an English topic and we will be reading a variety of different stories including ‘Tiger, Tiger’ and ‘The Honey Hunters’. We will be using maps, atlases and digital media to learn about the countries that the stories are set in. We will also be completing art work inspired by Edward Saidi.
In English we will be focusing on improving our grammar, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation. We will be looking at how we use different homophones correctly. We will also be working hard to develop our reading skills by sharing, exploring and discussing a wide range of texts.
In Maths we will begin the half term looking at place value. We will secure our knowledge of numbers and apply this knowledge to a variety of word problems. We will then move on to working on addition and subtraction strategies. We will also be working hard to develop our Mental Maths and arithmetic skills.
In Science we will be learning all about ‘Electricity’. We will look at what electricity is and how it was discovered. We will look at where electricity is used in the home and how to keep ourselves safe. We will also construct circuits and complete an investigation on how circuits work.
P.E will continue to be taught throughout the year and will usually be taught on a Friday. Class 10 need to make sure they bring their full P.E kits into school on Monday and leave them in school throughout the week. There may be unscheduled P.E activities that take place at different times during the week and we need our P.E kits ready so we do not miss out.
We are looking forward to another fun year! Watch this space for lots of interesting and exciting updates about our work in Class 10!
