Class 4 - Years 5 & 6

Welcome to our Class 4 page!

 

Our teacher is Mrs. Mooney

and our teaching assistants are Mrs. Dare and Mrs. Wiffin.

Autumn Term 2020

 

Welcome to Class 4. This term our big topic question is 'How do we live?'

We will be covering lots of different things within this. For more information, please see the medium term plan below. 

 

Our PE days this term are Thursday and Friday. Children should come to school in PE kit on these days. 

 

Because of the current Coronavirus restrictions there are some extra rules at the moment. Children should only bring their water bottle, lunch box if needed, spelling books and reading folders to school. 

 

Unfortunately, Mrs Mooney is currently unwell and a regular supply teacher, Mr Parker, is looking after her class.

FAO: Year 6 parents: 

 

Please see the information below provided by Hedingham School with regard to transition .

"As you can all appreciate, due to the current climate, Hedingham School will not be able to offer an Open Evening where parents and students can visit the school. I appreciate this is extremely frustrating for us all and acknowledge that there is no substitute for observing our students in their learning environment. However, we are preparing a 'virtual programme' which will include a tour of the school, students in lessons, Headteacher's presentation, live Q & A for parents to attend and student presentations. There will also be a School Prospectus which we will distribute to all primary schools.

We will endeavour to provide you with exact dates and times once we finalise the arrangements.

Topic: Ancient Greeks

 

Welcome to the last week of this academic year. You have all been working so hard, I am so proud of you all. Just this last week of work to do and then you can have a great summer holiday!


You have finished your learning about the Ancient Greeks now so this week's learning includes work from other curriculum areas that you many have missed including science, RE and art. 

 

For maths there is some work included in the main pack but there are also some additional year group specific resources you can access through this page. 

 

The all resources document is in full colour, but the individual activity documents have at least some of the colour removed to make them more printer friendly. 

 

Have a great week. If you are coming in to school, you will be given time to access these tasks as part of your learning.

Mrs Newland's Challenge of the Week: 22.06.20

 

Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

 

I saw from Portfolio and Tapestry that lots of you had had a go at some optical illusion art last week. If so, I hope you kept hold of it for this week's challenge! If not, it's not too late. You can still have a go. I'll upload the instructions to all of the class pages on the school website!

 

This week, we are going to add to it. I'd like you to experiment with taking photographs of you pretending to fall. Once you have one you are happy with, print it out in black and white, cut it out and stick it onto your art work!

 

Don't worry if you don't have access to a camera and/or a printer. You can draw your picture instead, or cut something out of a magazine. You could draw a picture of an animal if you prefer..

 

Ge creative and let me see your masterpieces on Portfolio or on Tapestry!

 

I hope you like mine!

Mrs Newland's Challenge of the Week - 01.06.20

 

Good afternoon everyone.

 

I hope you all had a lovely half term. 

 

Thank you to those who sent their pictures of the toilet roll tube challenge efforts. They were brilliant! You can see pictures of them all if you click on this link: 


https://www.st-margaretscofe.essex.sch.uk/whole-school-photos/

 

This week, I would like to create a display/piece of artwork in school to demonstrate what lock down has meant to our community. Perhaps you have learnt a new skill? Perhaps you have discovered somewhere new that is now your favourite place? Perhaps you have been particularly artistic. Perhaps there is one particular thing you have enjoyed doing. 

 

You could send me a photograph, a picture, a poem, a piece of writing, a collage... The possibilities are endless! Please send me your idea via the message section and/or the Portfolio section of ClassDojo. I will then print them out to use in school. I would really like every child to be represented so get those ideas coming! 

 

Have a great week everyone.
