Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Miss Robinson - Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!

2021-2022

 

Welcome to Class 4 with Miss Robinson. Our class page includes lots of useful information about all of the things that we get Up2 in our busy and exciting classroom.

 

In Class 4 we work alongside Mrs Weaver as our teaching partner. Mrs Weaver will be working in Class 4 every morning and will be covering my out of class time on a Thursday afternoon. 

 

This spring term our topic is Journeys Across Europe. Children will find out the names, locations and features of European countries and capitals. They will also discover fascinating facts about Europe, including the work of famous artists and composers, traditions and culinary dishes of different countries. The children will then study in more depth a region in a European country, focusing on the geographical and cultural aspects of the chosen location. They will compare their chosen location to an area of the UK.

 

As part of our science curriculum, children will be learning about 'Animals including Humans' where they will explore the digestive system in humans and the functions of teeth. They will extend their understanding of food chains to more complex food chains and food webs. In art we will be responding to the work of Renoir and Hockney and learning about how technology is influencing artists in today's modern world, whilst in computing we will be exploring 3D design and ebook creation. Alongside this, we will be developing hockey, football, handball and dance skills in PE.

Useful information:

  • Our PE lessons are on Monday afternoons. Please make sure PE kits are in school all week in case of extra opportunities. You may wish to include some warmer clothing for our outdoor sessions, particularly when the weather is colder. PE kits should include socks, a pair of trainers for outdoor games and plimsolls for indoor games. Please make sure that all items of clothing are named.
  • Spellings will be tested every Friday. 10 new spellings will be sent home every Friday to be learned for the following Friday. Children should know how to spell the words and be able to use them in a sentence. This is very important and will also be tested. All pupils have log in details for Spelling Frame; this is a fantastic online tool to help pupils to practise their weekly spellings. Please see link below. 
  • Times tables will be tested every Friday. Children will use timestables.co.uk to practise their speed of recall of times tables facts up to 12x12. This will support their learning in preparation for the National Multiplication Tables Check. Children have been given personal log in details to timestables.co.uk to practise at home. 
  • The Year 4 Reading Challenge challenges children to read at least 3 times or more to an adult outside of school each week. Reading records are collected in every Friday. If children have read 3 times or more, they can give themselves a tick on our class reading chart.  If they have read at least 3 times a week, every week, all half-term, they will receive a special reward. Children should also complete a comprehension homework task once a week.
  • Creative Homework should be completed once every half term. This will always be themed around our current learning topic. Parents and carers are invited to our classroom to celebrate the children's wonderful homework once every term. 
  • The cloakroom noticeboard is full of useful information including the week's spellings, timetables, dinner menus and up-to-date letters.
