Welcome to 4C
Our class teachers are Miss Connolly and Mrs Stanley
Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure children have their full kit in school.
Book bags should come to school every Monday. It is important that home readers are shared at home and returned to school.
Children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to school every day.
Spellings will be given out at the start of each half term. It is beneficial for the children to practise both at home and in school, in preparation for a weekly test every Friday.
R.E – Pentecost
During Pentecost we will be thinking about the way we live our lives, the way we treat others, and by our words and actions, show if we have an attitude of service.
Often we are especially influenced by those whose actions speak powerfully of a life of service.
We will be discussing people who have impressed us deeply because of the way they live. We will consider how we are inspired these people.
English- Poetry Study
This half term we will be studying the work of Benjamin Zephaniah.
We will share his poetry and create our own poems based on his style.
We start the summer term looking at fractions. In the next few weeks we will be adding and subtracting fractions as well as looking at fractions more than one.
Our Topic this term is The Anglo Saxons. We will be asking questions and investigating how the invasion of the Anglo Saxons changed Britain.
Our P.E this half term is athletics. We will be working on our sprinting, high and long jump. This week we have recorded our personal bests. Our highest jumper jumped an impressive 95cm.
PE this term is still on a Wednesday so don't forget your PE kit of blue shorts, red t-shirt and pumps/trainers. We are beginning our competitive game of rounders so will be outside a lot of the time. Because the weather isn't quite warm enough, children can bring tracksuit bottoms and wear their school jumper/cardigan if it is a bit on the nippy side.
The last swimming session will be on Monday 18th March. All the children have made fantastic progress in the pool and Mrs Stanley and myself are very proud of you all!
On Friday 7th September, we are having a show and tell session to get to know each other better. Please bring in something special to share with your class. This could be a photograph, toy, card, teddy bear, book etc. Try to choose something that has a special meaning to you and practise what you are going to say about your item. Don't worry if you can't find anything to bring in- think of a special person or time in your life and you can talk about that instead!
This term, we will be looking at riddles, dilemma stories and persuasive advertisements. Also, in the lead up to Christmas, we will be doing some exciting work based upon the Christmas adverts by Aldi, featuring Kevin the Carrot.
In addition to our English lessons, we will be doing lots of grammar, handwriting and spelling. Weekly spellings will be given out each Monday to be tested on Friday.
Here are some useful websites to practise your English skills at home:
This term, we will be learning to add, subtract, multiply and divide larger numbers using different written and mental methods. We will be learning to measure length, area and perimeter. We will also be looking at fractions.

This term our RE topics are:
We will also be celebrating Harvest later this term.
This week, we have been looking at healthy snacks. We have discussed what is already on the market and participated in food tasting to find out what we enjoy in 4C.
We all tried something new, from honey to raspberries.
Following our research, we decided what we would like to include in a healthy granola bar.
Please find the ingredients list below as I’m sure the children would love to have another go at home.
Brown sugar and butter
We worked on our peeling and grating skills and especially enjoyed getting messy grating the chocolate.
