Class 4 – The Publishing Panthers

Paragraphing Panther

Years 4 and 5

Teacher:

Mrs H. Rolling

Teaching assistants

Mrs V. Bower

Welcome to class 4, home of the publishing panthers !
In class 4 we have a mixture of year 4 and year 5 children all of which are challenged at the appropriate level. I actively encourage children as they enter year 4 and throughout year 5 to built on their independence and take responsibility for their personal organisation. In class, children are issued with their own set of equipment which they are expected to take care of and keep available to avoid any delays in our learning time.
The news letter will give details of this half terms topic and learning objectives across the curriculum. Our aim is to provide a wide range of engaging opportunities for children to develop their skills and knowledge supported by our current topic.
Home learning is actively encouraged namely with the practising  of weekly spellings and with MyMaths linked to that weeks aspect of maths learning. Regular reading is also essential for children to further extend their vocabulary and to experience a range of writing styles and genres. We are fortunate to have a library in class 4 which I have personally put together over the years and continually add to. Children are encouraged to borrow the books and I will suggest books and authors to further widen their appreciation of books.
As with every year, I am looking forward to the year ahead and, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact myself.
