Class 10

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 be taught by Mrs Beri on Tuesdays and Fridays. We also have our Teaching Assistant Mrs Dickens and our student teacher Mr Sheffield working with us.

English

Last half term we read ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. We planned our own marvellous medicine containing lots of weird and wonderful ingredients. We then used prepositions, accurate verbs, adverbs and amazing adjectives to rewrite the part where George makes the medicine. We have also continued to work hard on learning and applying our spelling rules and completing our Guided Reading tasks and reading comprehension activities.

Maths

In Maths we have looked at fractions. We have learnt what an equivalent fraction is and how to find equivalent fractions. We have also been adding fractions and finding fractions of amounts. We have continued to work on our Target Number morning work and our mental maths and arithmetic skills.

Science

In Science we have learnt all about ‘Teeth and our Digestive System’. We learnt about the names for our teeth and what functions they have. We also completed an investigation where we tested the effects of different drinks on hard-boiled eggs and linked these findings to our teeth. We were able to conclude that the best thing for your teeth is water as it effected the egg the least. We have concluded that too much Coco-Cola damages and stains teeth.

Topic

In Topic we have been learning all about the Romans. We have used atlases to learn about how the Roman Empire grew. We have learnt about how and why they invaded and what impact the Romans have on our life now. We also went on a brilliant trip to Wollaton Hall where we spent a day learning about life as a Roman and Roman archaeology.

Art

We visited the Nottingham Contemporary to see the exhibition of our work. The masks and writing that we produced made a really impressive display and we were really proud that members of the public could come and see our work.

ICT

In ICT we looked again at E-Safety and the importance of us being safe online. We then completed work on Digital Media. We have been using cameras to take photos in both portrait and landscape. We have then learnt how to upload the photos to a computer and edit the photos.

P.E

We have completed a unit on Athletics. We have learnt to set ourselves targets and to improve our performance in running, jumping and throwing.

P.E will continue to be taught throughout the year and will usually be taught on a Thursday and a Friday. We need to make sure we bring our 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!
