Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We hope you have had a safe and enjoyable Christmas break.

 

Our topic this term is ‘World War 2’. Despite being a predominantly History topic, this topic will also be lend itself to Whitemoor’s immersive approach to teaching and will incorporate Geography and Science, Art and Design Technology and of course, English and Maths.

 

As usual, any resources, information or knowledge about the topic from home is always gratefully received; the children do love being actively involved in this way.

 

Our ‘Topic Event’ this academic year will happen in the first couple of weeks of the new term and will give the class the opportunity to learn more about the life of an evacuee during the War years. We are hoping the children will spend the day in costume, but more details to come!

 

Homework this year will all again all be accessible online through Google Classroom and will be as follows:

 

Reading, Spelling and Timetables Practice every day

Topic homework as set on our Whitemoor Topic Grid

Maths weekly for Yr 5

SATs practice for 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.

 

PE kit need to be worn to school every Tuesday day; Go Active will continue to be coaching the children each week.

 

Water bottles for in-class and a healthy snack for break time are essential.  Maintaining hydration and fueling hungry tummies is vital to aid concentration and learning. Providing your children with these is of huge assistance to us in Class!

 

Finally, our Class 4 team would like to say a big ‘Thank you’ for all the support shown last year. Please feel free to contact if you need to, we are always here!
