Dear parents and carers,
Welcome back to Year 4 and 5! We hope everyone had a brilliant summer holiday and are now ready to work hard and learn lots of new things. We have lots of wonderful activities to look forward to which we hope you will find exciting. Mrs Morris and Mrs Gorman can’t wait to get started!
Mrs Gorman will be teaching all day from Mon-Wed. Mrs Morris will then take over on Thursdays and Fridays, although she will be in school all week working with other classes too. Mrs Bradbury will be supporting two groups towards the end of each week.
Our morning sessions will mainly focus on English, Maths and reading skills. The afternoons will be spent investigating a wide range of other subjects, the main focus of which will be our school topic of ‘Food Glorious Food!’
We are really excited about our topic work as we will be tasting and making our own bread, considering where our food comes from, and carrying out some messy investigations to discover exactly what happens to our food when we eat it. We are also looking forward to a visit from Warburtons Bakery later in the term to help us with creating our own sandwiches.
Children will have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The session on a Tuesday will be led by the Manchester United coaches. Please could you make sure that you child has their PE kit in school so that they can get the most from these lessons.
Homework in Class 4 will be given out on a weekly basis. Children will receive spellings on a Monday for a test each Friday. They will also receive regular English and Maths work to support our class learning. In addition, we expect the children to read each day at home and discuss what they have read with you. Please could you sign their reading records regularly and send them in each day so that we can see the exciting books they have chosen – we may even ask to borrow a few ourselves!
Thank you for your enthusiasm and support at the start of this new school year. We are both really looking forward to the adventures we will have with our new class this year.
We look forward to continuing a strong parent partnership. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to either Mrs. Gorman or Mrs. Morris.
The end of the day is usually the best time, when we can afford you more time.
Mrs Gorman and Mrs Morris
