Class 4. Miss Logue
We are Class 4!
Our class is made up of 24 wonderful and enthusiastic children and we love to explore and learn new things!
Our topics for this term are ‘Busy Bodies’ and ‘All Creatures Great and Small’.
In English, we are learning to retell ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ using actions and will then write our own versions of the story. We are trying to make sure that we re-read our writing to check that it makes sense. We spend time in our phonics groups (Read Write Inc.) each day and are taught by Miss Logue, Mrs Pitchers, Mrs Hanley, Miss Sykes, Miss Grabowski or Miss Vendy.
We do lots of reading at school, and we love listening to stories. We read as a class, in small groups, in our phonics lessons and we can often be found in the reading corner enjoying a book with a friend. Each term we learn about different authors and their stories. Our focus author this term is Oliver Jeffers.
In Mathematics, we will continue to build a secure foundation of number and calculation, including place value of 10s and 1s. We will also be deepening our knowledge of shape and measure. We wish to develop budding mathematicians who question, seek challenge and are eager to test their knowledge. We encourage this by giving opportunities to reason, and explain thinking.
In science this term, we will be learning about ‘animals including humans’, focussing on the human element this half-term and the animal part next half term.
Adults who help us with our learning:
Our teacher is Miss Charlotte Logue and our learning support assistants are Mrs Paula Hanley and Miss Annabelle Vendy. On a Wednesday afternoon, we learn music with Mr Will Welsford, French with Mrs Lesley Allenby and Science with Mrs Kemble. Mr Ollie Brewin helps us during our PE lessons.
Things to remember:
- We have PE on a Wednesday and Friday but it is good if we keep our PE kit in school every day just in case we need it. (We are very good at finding the mud and puddles outside!) We also make sure that nobody is wearing jewellery at the beginning of PE lessons so we try to remember to remove it before we come school.
- We keep long hair tied back.
- We bring our water bottle to school each day filled with fresh water.
- We read with an adult and change our reading books at least once a week so we always need to have them in school.
- We share the learning that we have been doing at home with our teacher by handing our Homelinks books in every Tuesday. Our teacher then gives them back to us on a Wednesday with a letter to tell our parents what we have been learning at school and activities for us to work on at home.
- We enjoy a piece of fresh fruit each morning at playtime. If would like milk at playtime, please order it through Cool Milk.
- We work hard to take care of our things but this is much easier if they are clearly named.
