Thistle (Years 4 and 5) 2019 - 2020

Welcome back Thistle Class!

Welcome Back!

We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are raring to go! We are really excited to be working in Thistle Class this year- we are certain it will be an incredible learning opportunity for all of us!

We have already begun our learning for this term - we started our term with a day dedicated SMSC day (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural day) where we explored and debated the importance of understanding our own moral standpoint and how we can work to be a better person individually and working collaboratively together. The children were keen to share their ideas and created their own Charter for how they envisage their year in Thistle Class. 

 

We have also begun to look at our topic of "The Romans" and the children have shared what they already know about this era. We have also begun to look at how to use Roman numerals within our maths sessions. In Art, the children have been inspired by the quote from Pablo Picasso "Every child is an artist"  and they have created portraits of this peers in his style of painting, understanding how different paint colours can evoke different feelings. 

 

Please visit this page frequently, as we will be adding more and more photographs and examples of the fantastic work that we will be doing in Thistle Class!

 A GENTLE REMINDER!

 

I would like to thank all parents for their support with homework tasks that are given to children.

As a reminder, children are given either Maths or English homework alternately along with spellings. The homework is given out on a Tuesday and is expected back into school by the following Monday. The children are also given a copy of the week's spellings to paste into their Reading Records. 

 

Children should be reading between 20 - 35 minutes per day and it should be checked by an adult at home. It is essential that children are reading as it improves their understanding and widens their vocabulary, which will support them in their work in class. Please make sure that you support your child with their reading. 

 

 

We have had an incredible start to this term and the children have really been working hard. They are showing great enthusiasm and determination in all lessons, and we are excited to be sharing the learning with them! 

A reminder that PE and Swimming will both be on Fridays, so both kits will need to be brought in, along with a snack to be eaten after swimming!

 

Homework is due in on Tuesdays and reading must be completed and recorded every day.

Many thanks for your help with this

Mrs Reid and Ms Sutton

 

Welcome back!

We hope everyone has had a fantastic break and enjoyed a well deserved rest!

We are already in full swing, delivering the new term's curriculum and we are excited to share some great learning with the children!

We were really impressed with the amount of children who had read over the Christmas break - remember, you should be reading at LEAST 20 minutes per day! We were also impressed with everyone's times table knowledge - we are noticing how much it is helping throughout our maths sessions.

 

Finally, if you have any problems, please do not hesitate to contact either of us, at any point.

 

Happy New Year

 

Mrs Reid and Ms Sutton
