Foxes

Welcome to Blackbirds!

 

We are a Year 4/5 mixed class, made up of 28 children. Our teacher is called Miss Owen and our learning support assistant is called Mrs Evans.

 

So far this year we have experienced some super fun learning around the topics 'A Knight's Tale' and 'Into the Unknown'. From training to become a knight under King Arthur's tutelage, we retraced Ernest Shackleton's expedition into Antarctica.

 

This term we will be exploring the ruins of Ancient Greece, recreating our very own pottery and reliving the Olympics.

Important information

 

PE kit

We have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Occasionally you will need it for other activities, so it's best to have it in school in case!

One of our lessons is outside, so your PE kit should include suitable outdoor footwear, plain jogging bottoms and a rugby shirt/plain jumper, as well as black shorts and a red t-shirt for warmer weather.

 

Homework

  • Children are expected to read daily for about 15 minutes. This does not necessarily need to be to an adult, and can be either their library book or their reading scheme book.
  • Written homework is given out on a Friday afternoon, and is due back in by Wednesday.
  • Each week, children will receive about half an hour of Maths and English homework, as well as a set of spellings to learn.
  • Every other week, the Maths homework will be set online, using the website www.mymaths.co.uk
  • Each child has their own login, and will have received a letter explaining how to access the homework.
  • Each half term, children will receive a take-away task to complete at home over a number of weeks. This can be a project that you work on together, offering children different ways to present their ideas. Check back to our class page for updates on the take-away task!

If you need help, or don't have the internet at home, homework club runs on a Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtime in the computer suite.
