Class 4 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Class 4!
We are a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 group.
This half term, our Science topic is all about Space and Light.
Class 4’s focus will be on the Solar System and what we know about Light; we will be exploring the planets in our solar system and learning more about some specific places, using a range of sources to learn more and planning and carrying out investigations about how light travels. We will be investigating what makes this area special through research, asking questions and exploring our knowledge and understanding. Please ensure your child is learning their Knowledge Organiser facts as there will be a regular quiz.
Please ensure you look out for the Space and Light Organiser (downloadable here) in preparation for our knowledge mini quizes.
This year we will be emphasising reading as a focus for our learning. Ensure that your home reader is in school EVERYDAY as we will be starting our day with reading and creating a calm and focused start to our day.
Class 4 will be swimming this term, ensure that you bring your swimming kit in every Monday and wear your PE kits into school on a Friday.
Remember home learning is always due back in on a Tuesday so it can be checked and sent back out to you each Thursday.
Our Curriculum Newsletter is published every half-term.
