Year 4 & 5 - York

Welcome to York Class! 

Our teacher is Mrs Bateman. When Mrs Bateman is out of class we have PE with Mr Dessena and French with Mrs Crellin.

 

Our Topic for the Summer term is France.

 

We will be reading; "Rooftoppers" by Katherine Rundell and a selection of non-fiction, poetry and information texts that will support and enhance our main text.

 

Detailed weekly communications with York families are shared using an online learning platform.  Please contact Mrs Bateman for further information. 

 

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 Monday and Wednesday.
 
 
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 will often be tackled 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.
