GSO Test

Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!

We hope you have all had a lovely half term holiday and are ready for another busy term.  Just to remind you, the Class 4 teaching team is Mrs Wilson (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Walters (Wednesday - Friday).  We are also fortunate to have Mr Cialis and Mrs Campbell as our teaching assistants to support you with your learning too.

This term, we will continue to learn about the Romans, looking at how the Romans have influenced our lives today and finishing off with how the Empire came to an end. 
This term in Science we will be exploring the topic of Sound.

PE will continue to be on a Tuesday and Friday and the children are required to wear their PE kits for these sessions.  It is essential the children bring in their own kit as we are unable to share or loan kits due to Covid-19. 
The children will also need:
  • a water bottle in school every day
  • a coat
  • a healthy snack e.g. a piece of fruit or a vegetable (please no crisps, chocolate or biscuits)

To contact Mrs Walters or Mrs Wilson please either contact the school office, or email using the address below:

Spellings

 Spellings will be tested on Friday mornings. To help you learn you spellings have a go at some of these activities:

  • Draw a picture and hide your spelling words inside. 
  • Type out your spellings, using different fonts and colours for each word. 
  • Write your spellings in alphabetical order
  • Cut and stick letters from old newspaper and magazines to write out your spellings. 
  • Write a silly story and try to include all your spelling words.
