Year 4 & 5 - York

Welcome to York Class! 

Our teachers are Mrs Bateman and Mrs Wilson.  Mrs Bateman teaches us on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Wilson teaches us on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

When our teachers are out of class, planning and preparing, our class is covered by Mr Dessena and Miss Whitley. 

All the stationery we need for learning is provided for us apart from glue sticks and colouring pencils.

     

Our Topic for the Spring Term is South America.

We will be reading,"The Explorer," by Katherine Rundell in class.

Further information about the learning during spring term can be found on our topic web.

 

Reminders

Please remember to bring a named water bottle, named PE kit and a reading book: these should be in school every day, though we are timetabled for PE each Wednesday and Friday.
 
Home Learning
Children are expected to do at least 20 minutes reading at home at least 4 times each week.  Pupils use Accelerated reader to ensure they are comprehending their reading selections.
 
Children will also have mathematics, literacy and spellings tasks each week.  Please help children with this homework so they become strong in their number facts.  
 
Maths targets can  be supported by working on the MyMaths website for which pupils have their own username and passwords. They also have passwords for Timestable Rockstars to develop their recall of times-table facts.
 
Pupils also have weekly spelling lists to learn and these double as an opportunity to practise their handwriting.   
 
Homework is set on Fridays and taken in on Wednesdays.
