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 into environmental issues in our world today. We will learning about eco footprints, global warming, rubbish and recycling. Finally we will thinking about what we can do at home and school to help. All of this work will cumulate in an assembly at the end of term. We will be telling others how we can all work together to make a difference. Parents will be invited to this assembly. As soon as I know the date in July I will let you know.

In English we will be continuing with our storytelling English work, our story for this term is The Prince and the Birds. From this story we will be writing our own version and writing non chronological reports about birds.

In Maths we are going to be revising our understanding of negative numbers, prime numbers and square numbers. We will also be extending our knowledge of fractions and decimals and also telling the time, converting it from 12 hour to 24 hour and reading timetables.

Mrs Peacock will continue to work with the Year 5s in maths on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Fridays we are all working together to improve our problem solving skills, we love ‘Problem Solving Friday’!.

Alongside all of this maths learning the ‘Beat That’ challenges will continue. We are so proud of how the children have risen to this challenge, thank you for all your support at home with these.

Forest School will continue on a Thursday afternoon, this week (Thursday 20th April) will start with group 2. Mrs Munns has been very appreciative of the adult help so far with Forest School. If you have any Thursday afternoons free to help, please let Mrs Munns know. The children have really enjoyed Forest School so far, they have all come back with huge smiles on their faces (surrounded by mud!) and have been full of stories about what they have been doing. The children who are not at Forest School each week will be having Mrs Richards and Mr Campbell for the afternoon, they will be completing Science investigations and looking at music from around Europe. All sounds like lots of fun!

Our PE days this term will be Wednesday and Friday; please ensure your child has a full named PE kit in school at all times.
