Class 4 (Falcons) 2019 - 2020

Miss Byrne

I am so excited to be staying in class 4. During this year, we are going to be learning, inspiring, laughing and having fun whilst getting ourselves ready for our new adventures once the year has passed.

Parents- Any questions or queries, my door is always open for you to pop in. Or, you can email me byrne@kingsleystjohns.co.uk

Let us get ready Falcons!

Welcome to Class 4. We love extra responsibilities and helping the younger children settle into the KSJ family. In this class, you will find your school council chairperson and sports council chairperson, as well as the house captains. Most importantly, we are hardworking and determined to be the best that we can possibly be.

Our 3 key rules:

Ready, Respectful and Resilient

 

Our Christian Values this term:

 

Friendship

Thankfulness

Koinonia

 

We will be focusing on all three of the Christian Values however; I really want to concentrate on friendship.

“Good friendships are motivating, uplifting, and inspiring.”

Colossians 3:13

 

Loyal friends love at all times. Love is a language of the soul, it excites, it encourages and makes friendships meaningful and fun.”

“Loving friendships are rare gems, priceless treasures, and the desire of many, but friendships without love are like ships without sails and tunnels without light.”

Proverbs 17:17

The stories in the bible remind us that no matter what is put in front of people, there are ways around certain situations. Which can happen in friendships, it is important that as friends there are solutions to help overcome situations and bring the best out of each other.

“Sometimes, it's a case of friends having to go through uncertain times together to better understand each other.”

“Relationships with obstacles at the beginning usually turn out to be lifelong friendships. So be patient, long-suffering, and find solutions to get the best out of your friends”

Galatians 6:2

During the first half of our term, we are going to be looking at the book Star of Fear, Star of Hope. We will be looking at how the writer has used certain techniques to portray different characters and feelings. Our work will have a focus on this book and we will be completing a variety of work. During the second half of the term we will then move on to Can we save the tiger? We will use this to continue with writing a different style of text as well as working on different SPaG aspects.

 

Spelling

We will be using the Babcock Spelling Scheme; this will run alongside our Literacy and SPAG lessons. The knowledge gained will be taken in to all writing aspects.

 

Maths

During the first half of the term, we will be further developing our knowledge on place value, Year 5’s will be using numbers up to 1 million and Year 6’s will be moving on to numbers up to 10 million. We will be looking at the values of each digit within a number and how to portray numbers in different ways. We will then move on to addition and subtraction making sure that place value knowledge is continuing to show. After the half term, we will move on to multiplication and division.

During the week, we will also have a mental maths test to help us embed our learning.

Science

Within the first half of the term, we will be focusing on forces before moving on to animals including humans.

RE

In RE we will follow the Diocese planning; the work is based on 11 Christian theological concepts. This term we are going to be focusing on Good News, Christian Community and Incarnation.

PE

During this term of PE, we will be focusing on different skills and teamwork. We will be working towards the skills to play tag rugby, hockey (first half term) and then moving on to football and dodgeball (second half term).

Computing

For the first half term, our Computing lessons will link to our Literacy, as we will create a web page for the item we are advertising. We will be using the techniques for the adverts as well as continuing our computer skills. We will move on to scratch during the second half of term.

Topic

We are going to be exploring the Benin Empire. We will be looking at a variety of different aspects such as when Benin happened and where on the timeline it came. We will look into the kingdom and the everyday life. We will also have a look at the Rulers as well as religion.

PSHCE

For this term, we will be basing our PSHCE on ‘We can work it out’ and ‘Face up to it’ which are important skills to have.

 

Homework

Homework is slightly different this year; please see the PowerPoint attached to the class page if you need to look over it. The children will continue to have a homework book and it will contain a sheet that has eight acitivites that have been set. I would like the children to pick six acitivites to complete for this term. I would like them to bring their homework books in on a Thursday so I can have a look at where the children are up to. I will also be sending out the Year 5/6 spelling list as well personal lists that I would like your child to work on.

 

Pe will be every Thursday, however please ensure your child always has a named PE kit and bag in school every day. 

As part of our uniform policy, children with shoulder length hair should have it tied back and off their face.

All children need a named water bottle in school daily, we do not have the facilities to provide cups for those children that do not.

All uniform needs to be labelled to ensure you get it back at the end of the day!

 

Here’s to a great term 😊
