Welcome to Dragon Class, here are a few bits and pieces to help you understand how our class runs.
Dragon class runs on a job share basis. Miss Vause takes the class on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Winterbottom on Thursdays and Fridays. We take it in turns to work Wednesdays.
In Dragon class we use Class Dojo to keep in touch with both parents and pupils: Copies of letters, photos, homework and reminders of events will be sent this way and messages can be sent and received where required.
PE this half term will be on Fridays. Please keep an indoor and outdoor kit in school every day in case of changes to the timetable.
Homework will be sent out on Fridays where necessary
Swimming will continue to run on Tuesdays as it did in Y3. Please ensure long hair is tied back and no earrings are worn on this day.
A spelling test will be done every Monday. (Spelling lists are in the children's planners for them to learn as well as on dojo if they leave their planner at school)
Maths mountains tests will be on Fridays. Please help your child to practise as often as possible as it helps so much in their general, day to day maths work.
We expect children to try and read at least 3 times a week either by themselves or to an adult. A mixture of both would be most beneficial. Children will be rewarded each week for reading at home.
We want your child to feel happy and secure at school and this is our ultimate aim to enable them to make consistent progress. If there are any problems, questions or concerns about your child please don’t hesitate to pop in and see us after school, send a message through class dojo or email if you prefer.
Our Topic this Half term is all about music
Shh, what's that noise? A bash, a crash? A shake? A rattle or a low, bass hum? Which do you prefer - an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof?
Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest!
Then, sing up and compose your own class song. Can you write a number one hit? Be sure to stand up straight, warm up your voice and sing your heart out.
When your performance is done, sit back and listen to calming classical melodies, a soothing lullaby or your favourite boy band ballad!
Can you hear me over there or do I need to TALK LOUDER?
