Class 4

Mrs Sumption

Class 4 Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back to the new Term! We hope you have all had an enjoyable Easter holiday.


Our topic this term is Frozen Kingdoms. This has been designed to lend itself to Whitemoor’s immersive approach to teaching and will incorporate Geography and History, Art and Design Technology and of course, English and Maths. Please see the Curriculum Coverage below.


As usual, any resources, information or knowledge about the topic from home particularly, information on either the Arctic or Antarctic and exploration of the regions will be gratefully received; the children do love being actively involved in this way. You could also support your child’s learning through reading around the topic at home, and encouraging some independent research to help them during the coming term.


Our ‘opening event’ this academic year has been chosen as a fun and enjoyable introduction to the topic that will include investigation and no doubt promote some questions about the topic!


Homework this year will be as follows:

  •  Reading, Spelling and Timetables Practice every day - to be checked at school each Friday
  •  Topic homework as set
  •  SATs revision YR 6


We really do value all the support you can give your child particularly with reading, filling in Reading Record Books, completing tasks set and with encouraging homework to be brought in on time. For those children moving on to secondary education, instilling good homework habits is essential!


Reading Books should be brought home each afternoon and brought back to school the following day. Drinks bottles (containing water only please) for ‘in-class’ and a healthy snack for break time will be needed each day. Helping your child remember these is of huge assistance to us in class as the morning can seem very long without a mid morning energy boost!


PE will be taught on Thursday day each week. We are asking that children keep their PE kit at  school during the week as occasionally the timetabling of PE lessons can be weather dependent.

The Class will also be swimming this term; details of this will follow in the coming weeks.


Finally, our Class 4 team would like to say thank you for all the support shown last term. As ever, it is very much part of our school day to ensure that the individual needs of all the children are met and we look forward to everyone settling back into the Spring Term happily. Please feel free to contact us if you need to make an appointment for a chat, we are always here. 


Kind regards,

Mrs Sumption and Mrs O’ Mahoney
