This is Ollie the octopus. He is the Green Class mascot, and his tentacles represent our Learning Goals! Members of Green Class need to do the Learning Goals to get a sticker! After they have collected three stickers, Mrs Burrow or Mr Broadbent will exchange them for a large sticker, and put their name in the Good Learners box ready for the celebration assembly!

 

Our learning goals are...

  • Communication
  • Cooperation
  • Resilience
  • Perseverance
  • Enquiry
  • Pride
  • Respect
  • Reflection

We're currently mad about Times-Table Rockstars, on here we can practice our times-tables with fun games and even battle other classes (we get very competitive). Your child should have their login details so they can play at home.

 

Your child has been given their Mathletics  and Bug Club passwords and can complete additional work on there.

Please feel free to take a look at  Mathletics here     Bug Club here 

This terms learning:

Welcome back to summer 1! We're over 2 thirds of the way through our year but there's still lots more we need to learn.

Topic: Throughout this term we'll be looking at our local area of Rothwell and exploring its history and what makes our town so special. Together we'll compare maps old and new, look at our routes to school and even conduct a local area study where we'll write to our local MP about how we'd like to change Rothwell for the better.  

Science: From teeth to toes, we're all learning about the human body this term. Together we will be exploring teeth and how to keep them healthy, muscles and bones and even our digestive system (yes including all the yucky stuff!) 

Art and Design: Finally in Art we're working towards improving our observational drawings of animals. Each week we're going to be practicing and improving our artwork by looking at proportion, patterns and pencil techniques. Towards the end of our term we'll each create a page to go in Green Classes very own 'How To Draw Animals' book.

 

 

Weekly Routine:

We have 2 sessions of PE a week, our first session is Tuesday, where it is indoor PE and looking at dance.  In addition to this on  Thursday  we will be going outside for a games orientated sessions. Furthermore year 4 pupils will continue to go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. Pupils are required to bring the appropriate kit on these days which can be found on the school website/ prospectus. 

Homework is set each week to be completed in both the pupils English and Maths workbooks. Their work is to be marked every Monday and new homework recorded Tuesday afternoon in their reading records.  

Each pupil will have a personalised spelling list consisting of upto 10 words to learn for the following week, throughout the following week each pupil will get tested then receive a new list to be tested the following week. We currently test year 4 pupils one week and year 3 pupils the next.
