Welcome to Rowling Class – Year 4 & 5
Class Teacher: Miss Dade
TAs:Mrs Munns and Mrs Sharon Smith
Rowling class is the Year 4 & 5 class at St James. We will keep you up to date with all the things we have been doing on this page, as well as letting you know about upcoming events.
In topic this term we will be looking at our local area. So far we have drawn maps of the local area and completed sketches of old buildings in and around East Hanney. We focused on how we could use patterns to great texture within them. Next, we will be studying up to date maps of East and West Hanney as well as comparing them to maps from 1910. Looking carefully at the similarities and differences between the two. We will also be drawing our own maps of the local area.
In English we will be studying and writing short tragic stories and biographies. We will also be continuing to work on the grammar objectives for Year 4 and 5.
In Maths we are going to be revising the written methods for division and expanding our knowledge of fractions/ decimals.
The Year 5s are going to be taught by Mrs Peacock for Maths on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
In Science we are going to continue our work on sound.
Our PE days this term will be Tuesday and Wednesday; please ensure your child has a full PE kit. These items should be clearly named. Year 5s will be swimming this term and the Year 4s have the opportunity to do some tennis training at Hanney tennis club.
