Larch Class


Welcome to the Larch Class!



A warm welcome back to everyone for the second half of the summer term. We hope you have enjoyed your week off- it was very well deserved! Again, a big well done to all of the children for how they conducted themselves during the class assembly, Mrs Saxon and myself were incredibly proud! Our curriculum focus this half term will be;


Maths: consolidation of the 4 operations, data analysis, mass and capacity, fractions and decimals and consolidation of place value.


English; we will be looking at Fizzlebert Stump: the Boy who left the Circus to join the Library by A. F. Harrold.


Science; we will be looking at sound.


Topic; we will continue to look at the topic- Who lived in Britain first? This half term we will focus more on the Bronze and Iron Age. Home learning challenges are due in for Monday 3rd July 2017.


RE; we will continue to look at the life of Jesus.


PSE; kindness and e-safety.


Music - Mrs Geelan will be focusing songs linking to our Topic.


Our PE sessions will take place on Tuesday afternoons (with Coach) and Friday mornings. Please make sure you have a full PE kit in school and tracksuit bottoms for chillier days if we are outside. It's usually easier to leave your kit here and take it home for a well-deserved wash at the end of each half term. Please could girls remember to have a bobble to tie back their hair and we will provide tape to cover any earrings worn. It's also a good idea to include a pair of socks in the kit if girls like to wear tights for school.

Spelling - Spelling lists will be sent home in a Home Spelling book on Fridays. The words will have been taken from the Year 3 and Year 4 English National Curriculum Spelling lists. Please learn your words carefully for a test the following Friday. Please remember to bring your spelling books in every Friday so we can give your child a new spelling list. Spelling tests will be conducted in the spelling book.

Maths - My Maths homework will no longer be set. Instead, children will be asked to complete Bug Club activities at home. Each week children will be asked to complete a specific task linking to our grammar focus of that week. There is no set deadline day for the children to complete the task, however we do ask that children complete the task before the end of the week.

Reading - Children will be able to select a Home Reading book every Friday from a selection of books at one level below that which they read for Guided Reading sessions. This is so children may consolidate their skills and enjoy reading with confidence. Books may be kept for an extra week if needed.


Home learning challenges- Children will be set home learning challenges on a termly basis. This terms home learning challenge will be focused on the early history of Britain and will be due in on Monday 3rd July 2017



Thank you so much for your support over this past year!

Mr Cox and Mrs Saxon
