Class 4 Curriculum Information

Welcome to Class Four

Years 5 and 6 - Mrs Marenghi-Smith and Mrs Curtis-Noor

In Classes 3 and 4, we strive to ensure that our children have strong core skills in Reading, Writing & Mathematics, which are then utilised and given a context within a broad and creative curriculum. 

Reading continues to be a priority; children are encouraged to read widely for pleasure, whether that is electronic material or traditional books. We also take every opportunity to read throughout the wider curriculum areas, in order to develop valuable research and information gathering skills. 

Mathematics is also a priority. Encouraging an enjoyment of the subject is an integral part of Mathematics; learners at all stages are supported to find pleasure in challenge and be aspirational for themselves.

By the end of their time in Class 4, we aim for the children to be well prepared to continue successfully into secondary education and beyond.

In Class Four, we have been making Anglo-Saxon brooches and necklaces. We made them out of clay; we used special tools to carve out pictures and patterns similar to those found from the Anglo-Saxon era. They are currently drying, ready to be transformed into jewellery using paint.


 

This week Class four have been investigating light. We designed an experiment to prove that light travels in straight lines. There were lots of imaginative ideas about how to do this including shining a torch through a hole in two bits of paper and observing the direction of the light beam. We also discussed what would happen if light didn’t travel in straight lines.

This week we have been studying Beowulf, an Anglo-Saxon legend. We have used the knowledge and understanding gained during our Immersion week to set the scene for the book. We have focused on key reading skills including: selecting information from the text and explaining reasons for the author’s word choices.
