Welcome to Blue class. We are a Year 4 and 5 class taught by Mr Cutts, Mrs Jones, Mrs Inskip and Mrs Chadwick. Click on the links below to find out more.

This is what we will be learning about in the Summer term:

Maths: This term we will cover the following through a range of varied fluency, reasoning and problem solving approaches:

Place value, mental and written calculations, fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio and proportion, statistics, problem solving, reasoning and algebra, measurement, geometry and properties of shape.

English: We will develop our literacy skills across a range of genres and text types through the use of the following texts:

Chester Zoo information leaflets, Ali Baba, Street Child by Berlie Doherty, a range of information, instruction and explanation texts and assorted poetry anthologies.

Topic: Victorians

Our history and geography focus for this term will be based on various aspects of The Victorians., including Victorian childhood and industry.

In addition to this, as part of our theme week, we will visit Englesea Brook Museum.

Computing:

The pupils will continue to develop their understanding of programming.

Science:

Animals including humans

This unit will teach how the human changes as it grows into old age.

Living Things (help our habitats)

The children will learn to describe the differences in the habitats of various animals.

Art: Botanical Sketching

The children will develop their drawing skills of plants and flowers, looking closely at line and tone.

D&T: Miniature Victorian doll’s house

The children will research and make a room for a doll’s house.

RE: Judaism / Islam

This unit will give the children a general overview of both the Jewish and Islamic faiths.

Music: Lean on Me

The children will learn this song and compose their own verses.

Homework:

Maths will usually be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Thursday. English will usually be set on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Monday.

Presentation expectations are the same as those for classwork.

PE:

Indoor games lessons, which include dance and gymnastics, will be delivered on a Wednesday. The children will need to wear their school PE kit: navy shorts and light blue t-shirt. Outdoor lessons will take place on Fridays for Y4 and will include rounders and athletics. This is dependent upon weekly weather conditions. It is therefore important that in addition to school PE kit, the children have pumps or trainers and a track suit in school AT ALL TIMES so that they are prepared for an outdoor lesson. The Year 5 children will have swimming lessons on a Thursday afternoon.
