I hope you've all had a great Christmas and New year and are raring to get back into it!
Our topic for the term will be China and Shang Dynasty.
The teacher in Class 4 is Mr Seaton and we are lucky enough to work with some other great adults and teaching assistants in school like Mrs Whitt, Mrs Cannings, and Miss Jackson as well as the wonderful booster teachers Mrs Belton and Mrs Doel. On Wednesday afternoons children will be doing art with Mother Jean and also drumming with Kyle.
I warmly invite all parents/carers to come into school and help out around the class room or to hear readers. We also may need helpers for school trips and library visits. Whether you have helped out in class already or have never been in to help your time will be greatly appreciated.
What will we be learning this term?
Our Topic for this term is China and the Shang Dynasty. In science we will be learning about sound. In PSHE we will be learning about being an encourager. In computing children will be learning how to develop an interactive game. In RE children will be learning about the journey of life and rites of passages in different religious contexts. Have a look at the bottom of this page for some fun and interesting links to do with our topic as well as games to help with reading, writing and maths.

Spellings - Every week children will be given spellings to learn on a Friday and tested on them the following Friday.
Reading - Where possible it would be great for children to read to an adult every day in order to develop their reading, writing and comprehension ability. Please record this in your child's organiser and feel free to communicate with me using your child's organiser.
Times Tables - In class 4 we have a times tables test every Monday. Please help your child in practicing and learning these at home.
Other Homework - A homework menu will be sent home with children in their first week
Homework Club - This year homework club will be every Thursday after school from 3.35 - 4.45.
