Class 7

Spring 1

May I start by wishing you all a Happy New Year! I hope you managed to have a peaceful and restful time over the festive period. The children have settled back into school this week and have made a superb start to the new term. They have come back enthusiastically and are eager to learn and apply their knowledge and skills. Once again, I was extremely impressed with the homework that was handed in and uploaded onto Seesaw at the end of last half term. It was clear how much effort and creativity had been put into the work produced. Keep it up kids and thank you parents and carers for your continued support.

This curriculum newsletter will tell you all about the units and areas of learning being covered in this first Spring half term. All the children will be learning the same topics but will cover the specific year group expectations for Year 3 and Year 4. Our topic this half term is called ‘What lies underneath my skin?’ which links beautifully with our Science and Design Technology topics.

 

Autumn 2

Welcome back everybody! I hope you’ve had a peaceful and restful half term and have been able to recharge your batteries. The children have made a fantastic start to the new half term and have already produced work they should be very proud of. I was extremely impressed with the homework that was handed in and uploaded onto Seesaw at the end of last half term. It was clear how much effort and creativity had been put into the work produced. Thank you and keep it up! This curriculum newsletter will tell you all about the units and areas of learning being covered in this second Autumn half term. All the children will be learning the same topics but will cover the specific year group expectations for Year 3 and Year 4. Our topic this half term is called ‘How did Rome get its name?’ and is linked to our History and English units.

The children have two experiences this half term. The first is a trip on Tuesday 7th November to the Liverpool World Museum (have you completed the permission slip on Forms?) and the second is on Monday 20th November when we have The History Squad coming into school for the day to deliver a workshop to kick start our History topic on the Romans. The children are more than welcome to dress up for this day as a Roman if they wish to do so. 

 

Autumn 1

Welcome to Class 7!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Class 7. We are a mixed Year 3/4 class and, for this academic year, will be taught by myself, Angela Makepeace.  Supporting us in Class 7 this year is Carol Fairhurst, who supports us every morning and when we split into our separate year groups for Spelling and Maths lessons. Carol also teaches the class on a Thursday afternoon.

The children have made an incredible start to the year and have settled into our classroom routines brilliantly.  I have really enjoyed getting to know the children so far, and I know this year is going to be amazing! We have a superb year ahead of us and I can’t wait to begin exploring the topics we have lined up for the year with the children. All the children will be learning the same topics but will cover their specific year group expectations for Year 3 and Year 4.

The class curriculum map can be found below and this will give you all the information you need to know about what your child is learning. It also identifies our community link with Chorley Help the Homeless Charity, with whom we collect food and toiletry donations at certain times of the year. This year, we are also hoping to make links with a school in the USA and become pen pals with them.

PE day for this first half-term is Tuesday. The children can come into school wearing their school PE kit. 

If you do have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to call school or contact me via email.

 

Angela Makepeace.
