What are we learning about in Class 4?

Autumn Term - 2018

I’d like to say a massive welcome to all the pupils and their families of the new Class 4. What an exciting first term we have in store.  Our learning journey over the next year will be filled with happiness, determination and wonderment! 

The Stone Age

This term’s topic is The Stone Age! Through this exhilarating subject we will be recreating our own cave art from natural materials, discovering what it looked like to live in cave man times, exploring the world as an early human and delving in to books such as the ‘Stone Age Boy’ and of course ‘Stig Of The Dump’. 


The children will be bringing home a QR code so that you are able to access the dojo website or app from home. This will enable you to follow your child’s classroom reward system online, direct message myself and even upload videos and pictures that your child would like to share with me or the whole class.  This fantastic form of communication is great to allow the pupils homelife and school life to connect.


Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school on a Monday and Wednesday. This term we will be mastering the art of throwing and catching, moving on to running and jumping to finally bring these skills together to conquer the world of competitive games. Building on the basic skills in the first term means that by the time sports day is upon us in the summer term… Class 4 will be triumphant! 


The children will be exploring number, specifically place value over the next few weeks. We start this off by looking at Roman Numerals which is very interesting, maybe the children could show you how to write your age or phone number when they are at home? We will continue to hold our times table challenge on a Friday, please support your child by allowing them to practise theirs times tables.


The children will be rewarded at the end of this term with a prize if they read 4 times every week from now until the end of term. Reading is such an important skill and it helps the children succeed in other curriculum areas. Therefore, we would really appreciate your support by listening to your child read and signing their home links every time.


Similar to the reading approach, children will be rewarded for practising and will be tested on a Friday and also handed out new spelling then too. There are lots of creative ways to practise at home which siblings can join in! 

Thank you again for your continuing support
