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 Tuesdays. 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 the deep sea.
Grab your wetsuit! We're going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious creatures.
Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal?
What do real divers get up to under the surface? Create a fishy story about exploring an amazing underwater world.
Time to go a little deeper into our seas, make a model deep sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first!
What are those bright lights in the distance? It's a group of Bioluminescent sea creatures! Look closely and create a colourful , 3D art exhibition when you rise to the surface.
Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let's head into the Blue Abyss........
