Welcome to Class 4. This is where children at St James spend their final years in Primary School.
Mr Mason, Mrs Porter and Mrs Yates are always busy working with the oldest children in our school. Whether we are learning about fronted adverbials, subordinate conjunctions, complex sentences or using parenthesis, or maybe something simpler like long division, creating pie charts, equivalent fractions or multi-step problem solving. It's fair to say that years five and six are put through their paces! Also thrown into the mix are some great topic adventures like Ancient Greeks, Earth and Space, Electricity or Mayan civilisation where we can show our creative side, be it art, design technology, geography or history.
In PE the children gain some great new opportunities from Mr Harper, bringing with him a wide range of new sporting activities that we have really enjoyed. PE days are Thursday afternoons - make sure children are prepared for all weather conditions!
Homework - Is set each Friday to be handed in the following Thursday. Homework consists of an English task in their book, A maths task online on MyMaths, Spellings (test every Friday) and reading (please continue to comment in their reading journal)
We hope your child enjoys their final years at St James - we will endeavour to support and challenge their learning throughout.
