Woolsthorpe (Yr 4)
WELCOME TO SUMMER TERM IN WOOLSTHORPE CLASS
After a very strange time of Home Learning and then being back at school for a short time, I cannot quite believe we have already reached the Summer Term! It was wonderful to have you all back for those final few weeks of the Spring Term and you really showed me just how resilient and WONDERFUL you are! I hope that you will return with the same fantastic attitude to your learning in your last term as WOOLSTHORPE WONDERS.
I’m delighted that some of you have kept up with using Accelerated Reader during the holiday period and maybe I’ll be giving out more certificates when we’re back at school. Don't forget that you can now do quizzes online at home once a reading book is finished - it is important that these are done independently and we look forward to seeing your progress through the Summer Term. Congratulations to those of you who have also been using TTRockStars to practise your times tables knowledge and recall. Remember the more you practise, the quicker and more confident you will become!
The term ahead is varied and exciting, with plenty of great opportunities to enhance the curriculum. Our theme will be ‘TRADERS AND RAIDERS’ – learning about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will also be exploring the theme of RESPECT during our Faith mornings and begin to develop our dancing skills in preparation for our virtual May Festival.
By now, you're getting more used to the idea of Knowledge Organisers which are available for both our theme and for core subjects. These are made available via Dojo for your reference - please look out for these at the start of the term. Parents, please do encourage your child to regularly review these at home - it is important that they all learn and understand this knowledge and have further opportunity to discuss it with you at home as will help them to be able to verbalise the knowledge they are learning in class and remotely.
We will continue to keep parents up to date with our learning developments and give out general messages and reminders out on Class Dojo, so do remember to turn on your notifications and continue to check in frequently. As we did at the end of Spring Term, we have now reverted to home learning to complement what we do in school (i.e. homework) - this will be available on SeeSaw - please do let us know if you have any connectivity issues with this and we will do our best to resolve any problems (I’m sure that you're all a whizz on this by now!). It will help us enormously if you could continue to upload your child's independent work by any weekly deadlines (or as soon as complete would be even better).
In order to see what we're covering in Term 5, please take a look at the Medium Term Theme Plan for Parents below.
If you have any problems at all, please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to continuing working with you and your amazing Woolsthorpe Wonders.
