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 autumn term our topic is Invaders and Settlers. The children will take a journey of discovery as they find out about how England became a unified country. They will explore where the Anglo-Saxons came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today. The children will find out about life in Anglo-Saxon England and explore religious beliefs and the spread of Christianity. They will learn about the raids and invasions by the Vikings, finding out about the Anglo-Saxon kings who ruled during the ‘Viking Age’ and examine their influence and significance in British history.

 

As part of our science curriculum we will be exploring a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things, and learning about what electricity is and how it was discovered. To support this learning, we will be designing and making battery operated lights which can be controlled by a homemade switch in DT. In art we will be planning and developing Giacometti-style sculptures.

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 3 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.
