Year 4/5W

Welcome to Year 4/5!

In our class we love learning new things! We like to impress our teachers by trying our best and by being independent learners. Our teachers encourage us to grow in confidence by completing tasks independently and take more responsibility for our work.

We have lots of wonderful things planned this year so please keep checking our website and newsletters to find out more.



This year we will be aiming to complete participate in ‘Active 30/30’ and complete 30 minutes of physical activity in school every day. We will aim to complete 30 minutes of physical activity at home as well, we would love it if parents could help us!

PE takes place every Thursday, however PE sessions may sometimes change, so please ensure PE kits are brought into school every week or left in school and taken home at the end of a half-term.



The children are now getting into the swing of the homework routine and know that all new homework is given out on a Wednesday and must be handed in by the following Monday.

We expect the children to be able to quickly recall times table and division facts for all times tables up to 12 but we will focus on one or two different times tables a week and build up to them all. We are really focussing on that quick recall so practise whenever you can: walking to school, shopping, in the car, anywhere!

Please note: children will be tested on their weekly spellings and tables every Wednesday morning. We will also check their reading logs to ensure they have been reading at home at least 3 times per week.



The children argued over who was most to blame for the tragic sinking of the Titanic. We debated between 4 suspects and produced a piece of writing.

The children loved learning about WW1! We learnt about life in the trenches, life on the front line and women’s suffrage. We finished the topic creating our own trenches!

In science we have investigated a range of experiments including rocks, changing properties and materials and plants.
