Green 2018 - 2019

Mr Robinson

Welcome to Green Class

A very warm welcome to Green class. Here is all you need to know about the Autumn term. I hope that you find the information useful.

There are some big differences between KS1 and KS2. Firstly, your child will be able to bring money in and buy their own snack at morning break. Secondly, their lunchtime will be 15 minutes shorter and they will have no afternoon playtime at all.

Please could you read regularly with your child at home and write it in their homework diary. We will be reading Horrid Henry books, David Walliams books and Roald Dahl as our main class text throughout the year. I welcome any work, books, artefacts related to any of the areas we are studying this term, brought in from home. If you have any queries or want help, you’ll be more than welcome to pop in for a chat.

Maths: This term we will cover the following

This year there will be a huge emphasis on learning the times tables as by the end of year 4, they should be able to recall all the times tables up to 12. We will be using the online Times Table Rockstars website to help us and completing daily tasks. Please help your child by practising them at home. You will find login information in your child's diary.

We will also be focussing on place value of number and addition and subtraction. We will also concentrate on problem solving and reasoning.

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

We will begin the year with a poetry unit where we creating images by using better adjectives, verbs and nouns. After that, we will be learning how to write a set of instructions that can be fiction and non-fiction, using sequencing words and imperative verbs.

In the next unit, we will use the text, I’ll Take You To Mrs. Cole by Nigel Gray and Michael Foreman.

We will be focus on joined up handwriting, sentence structure, paragraphs and using full stops and capital letters consistently.

Everyday, we have a guided reading session. You can really help your child by reading with them 5 times a week and asking questions about the text. Ask the why and how questions.

We will be learning who were the Vikings and where are they from. Your child will look at Viking homes, settlements, warriors, boats, art and culture and Viking gods.

This science topic will invlove us studying balanced diets, and nutrition. This will include us looking at animals which are herbivores, carnivore, omnivores and what makes a healthy meal?

We will look at the importance of exercise and see how we can measure performance, how our body is affected by exercise and use different ways to record our results to draw conclusions.

RE: Christianity

We will be finding out about stories of Jesus, focussing on parables and miracles. Why were these stories important? We’ll look at Daniel and Lion’s Den and the story of the Prodigal son and try and understand the meaning and lessons learnt.
