Welcome to the next Class 4!

This week has been brilliant! We've had so much fun getting to know each other a little bit more, getting used to new routines and starting our new learning. I am very impressed with how well the children have been getting on, they are so enthusiastic about their learning - I think we have a good year ahead of us! 

I hope you have recieved the new curriculum leaflet which will tell you a little bit more about what is coming up! The new home learning grid has also been sent out this week - can't wait to see what everyone chooses to do! These are both availiable on the website if you need another copy. 

We have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday, please ensure you a full kit is in school and labelled. 

Homework and spellings will be set on a Tuesday and handed in on a Monday. 

Children are encouraged to record their own reading in their home-school contact book if they wish - this should be a comment on what they have read,and understood to help with comprehension. Please can an adult still sign their comment everyday, even if they are reading independently.

This week, In maths we have been learning about Roman numerals. We learnt numbers up to 1000. As the week progressed, the numbers we were looking at got harder and harder. We learnt that 1 = I, 5 = V, X = 10, L=50, C=100, D=500, M=1000. Also that to get 4 and 9 you have to subtract 1 from 5 and 10.

 

In english, we have been learning about significant authors. What makes them significant and their styles. We have started to learn about biographies and autobiographies. A biography is when you are writing about someone else life where as an autobiography is when you write about yourself. They also have specific features.
