Class 4

Welcome to Class 4's page!


We have so many exciting things planned for the Pentecost term and are looking forward to building on our learning from the Lent term (despite all the interruptions we have had!)


Our History topic for the term will be one that focuses on local history, specifically that of Nottingham Castle.


Our main PE this half term will be cricket, which will take place on Wednesday mornings, so please come to school ready in your PE kit. We are also very lucky to be having Forest School activities on Thursday afternoon with Mrs Hudson, so please come to school on Thursdays in clothing suitable for this.


The children will resume their paper-based TTRS tests each week, where I will set the tables to be learned each week as homework. Hopefully, they children have been making good use of the online game to help them increase their rock speed for recall of their times tables and division facts!


Spelling tests will be on Fridays this term and will once again be set as a 'pyramid' of spellings to learn each half term, which they will also be able to practise on the Spelling Shed website.


Reading diaries will be checked each Monday for 3 signatures from an adult/older sibling to confirm that they have either been heard reading or had their comprehension of what they have read checked. Please feel free to use a combination of school and home reading books as well as the Rising Stars online reading tasks.


As always, many thanks for your support this year.
