Welcome to Buzzards Class!
Welcome back to school! I hope you have had a relaxing summer. It is great to get back to some sort of normality! Our topic this term is a whole school topic – Nurture in Nature – each class pair has been give an allocated area of the school grounds to improve and use as an outdoor learning space.
We will be having indoor PE on a Tuesday and outdoor PE with Mr Murphy on Thursdays, so please make sure that your child comes into school dressed appropriately.
Please can I remind you that the Maths that the children will be doing in Year 4 and 5 will rely on them having a sound knowledge and recall of multiplication and division facts. It is a national expectation that children know all of their times tables facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. It would really help if the children could regularly play on interactive times tables games such as Times Tables Rockstars, Hit the Button and the games on Purple Mash to improve their recall speed and accuracy. When they are tested weekly, they need to be able to recall these facts quickly.
A spelling list has been sent home with your child, please help them practise at home – tests will be on Mondays. We will do times tables tests on Fridays – your child will know their times tables target.
We will be sending homework home on Wednesdays, this is to be returned the following Monday.
Please find this term’s spelling overview for both year 4 and 5 below.
