Autumn Term 2020
Welcome to class 4B
Finally we are back at school. It is so lovely to see everyone again after so long.
We hope everyone had a lovely summer and has come back to school ready to learn.
Your class teacher is Mrs Blower and we are very lucky to have Mrs Bowker who also works with us in class each day, helping us to learn. Some children will be working with Ms Green and Mrs Haslam in the Forest Room. Mr. King is also working with a group of children who have English as an additional language each morning.
This term in Maths, we will be looking at number value as well as comparing numbers and rounding them to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We will also be practising our times tables a lot so please practise your times tables at home. You can go online to Purple Mash times table games or TT Rock Stars.
We are also learning how to write a warning tale in English, based on a text called The Selfish Giant!' We will be making story maps and actions to help us to remember the text, which we will then change to make a new warning tale later. We will also be working on making a writer's toolkit to help us remember how to write amazing openings for our stories.
In Science, as part of our study of the digestive system we will trace the route of food through are bodies learning about all the organs and body parts that are involved in this process and the roles they play.
In our computing lessons, we will be learning all about e-safety to ensure that we understand how to stay safe on the internet through media communication and online gaming.
In PSHCE, we will be looking at our school and the community, planning new goals, celebrating differences and looking at relationships. We will also be looking at different emotions and how we can look after our mental health.
If we are particularly hard working or well behaved, we will be rewarded with ‘Shadsworth Money’ (small paper coins) which we can save up and spend in the school ‘Shadsworth Shop’ on a wide range of prizes for various amounts.
Home Reading Books will be staying in school for now but we are reading in class every day. If you have any books at home, try to find a little bit of time to listen to your child read and discuss any misunderstandings of the text.
Please keep your PE kit at home. We will let you know when you need to bring it back into school.
Homework will be put onto the website in the next few weeks and homework books will be sent home. Try and complete the activities set and send your book back into school at the end of term.
