Latest Class Four News
At the end of Term 5, the class enjoyed a trip to Pizza Express for a pizza workshop. The class learnt about the finer details of making pizza before creating (and eating!) their own margarita pizzas.
Our topic this term is a combined History and Geography unit looking at Bristol and the Slave Trade. We will examine the roots of the slave trade focussing in detail on the Transatlantic Slave Trade. We will ask how and why it was allowed to happen, how it finally ended, and look at how the lives of those involved were impacted. We will also be looking at Bristol’s own relationship with the slave trade.
Hotwells on Holiday
To finish off our Hotwells on Holiday Europe topic we did some cooking as a class where we cooked two famous European dishes - pizza and chocolate croissants! The class had a fantastic time making (and eating these!) and they did a great job!
Our English book for this term is the excellent The Boy at the Back of the Class. This will be the basis for a narrative writing unit in Term 5.
This week we have been applying written methods of multiplication to solve mathematical problems. Your homework this week is linked to this learning.
We have also looked at scaling e.g. The sunflower is fives times as tall as the daisy. The daisy is 8cm . How tall is the sunflower?
In Class 4 it is important to be able to recall your times table facts quickly. We will practise them in school but you should also be practising at home at least twice a week. You can practice specific times tables here at www.timestables.co.uk. Adults - if you are looking for advice or ideas for supporting your child to learn their times tables please visit www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/advice-for-parents/help-with-times-tables/.
At the end of term there will be an opportunity to try for a Maths Olympics Award (see Ms Barnham for details) so keep practising!
Our science topic this term is the Living things in our Environment. We will begin this term by finding out about global warming, before focusing in on our local environment and the plants and animals within it. Our trip to Parkend on the 28th links very closely with this topic.
We will be using Lego WeDo software this term to write code controlling motors.
This week’s homework is a maths worksheet which continues on with our learning on solving mathematical problems. The homework is due back Thursday 13th June.
Your Weekly Spellings
Your next spelling test will be on Thursday 13th June. You will be tested on Week 1 words.
