Your class teacher is Miss Parks and your TA is Mrs Denton.
It's a brand new year and it is going to be a fantastic one!
Our first topic is "What did the Romans do for us?" The children will be exploring the rise of the Roman empire and what it was like in Roman Britain. It's a great topic to get involved in, full of model-making, rebellions, exotic food and of course, a lot of study of the arts!
Useful things to know
What have we got up to?
Here is a reminder of the expectations, when learning multiplication tables:
By the end of year 2, they should know their 2x, 5x and 10x table.
By the end of year 3, they should know their 3x, 4x, 6x and 11x table
By the end of year 4, they should know their 7x, 8x, 9x, and 12x table.
Please, please help your child to learn their times tables. Knowing these by heart and being able to recall them quickly is invaluable to their learning. It helps them to progress more quickly with problem solving and multiplying and dividing larger numbers.
We are beginning Autumn term by looking at the work of Michael Foreman, a fantastic children's author. The children will analyse his books and try to recreate his writing style by writing stories of their own.
The book we are working from is called, "I'll take you to Mrs Cole!"
In Art, the children will have a look at capturing facial expressions on the page, in clay and we hope to create our own Roman statues!
On Thursdays the children will be working with Premier Sport while on Friday afternoons, I will work with them on recreating Roman dances and choreographing our own!
