Year 4/5 – St. Andrew – Mrs Taylor

Spring Term Curriculum

This term Year 4 and 5 are learning about the amazing author C S Lewis, who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia.  As part of this topic, the children will learn all about maps and the skills required to read them, about cold climates, mythical creatures and most importantly, about the life of C S Lewis.

The children will be given greater opportunity to be creative with the design and presentation of their work this term which they are really excited about - so are the teachers!

In Maths the children will continue to concentrate on multiplication and division and in English they will develop skills to write an outstanding setting woven through a portal story.

Year 4 children will take part in Samba lessons this term which will culminate in an end of unit concert.  Year 5 children wll continue with music too.

Here’s to another exciting term of learning

Reading

All children are expected to read regularly every week to an adult; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets.  When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house.  Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.

Home/School Planner:

Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.

Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning. Children will receive a merit for planners that have been signed when returned on Monday.

Class Expectations:

  • We will respect each other and their property.
  • Have a positive attitude to learning.
  • Always try our best.
  • Listen to all staff and children.
