SWIMMING: On our return we will be going swimming every other week, alternating with St Joseph's school. Our first swimming lesson will be on Monday 10th May. We will need PE KITS on Tuesday 4th May and alternate weeks from then on. PE every Thursday please.
We enjoyed learning about the Jewish celebration of Purim as dressed up and baked our own Hamentaschen treats.
ENGLISH and TOPIC
This half term we will be asking "Why is Manchester such a cool place to live?" We will write useful instructions about the city and some diary entries 'in role'. Our class book is 'The boy at the back of the class' by Onjali Rauf. This thought provoking, empathetic narrative will help to develop a range of English skills and link to our Manchester topic. It is also great for learning how to be welcoming to others; we have had several new pupils in our class, just like the boy in the story.
Guided Reading: Each week, pupils will use a variety of text types designed to expose them to a rich array of vocabulary and structural techniques to develop comprehension skills. In some sessions they will work in an adult led group. Teaching methods have been adapted due to considerations for social distancing, and will be kept under review.
Please read daily with your child - this could include reading aloud to them; listening to them read aloud to you; sitting together reading your own texts silently, or reading 'real texts' needed like recipes and appropriate news articles. It is important to discuss what your child is reading, for example: What is your book about? Which new words have you come across today? Why do you think the author chose this description?
Remember, each pupils can access a range of online books selected for them using their Rising Stars login. Please email Wren class if you need reminding of their personal details.
Spellings: Mrs Bowley will be setting and testing spellings on Fridays. Please practice spellings at home regularly using a range of approaches. For examples, see these ideas from our No Nonsense spelling scheme at the bottom of this page, where you can also find the full lists of spellings we use at St Georges.
By the end of Year 4, pupils are expected to know all of their timetable facts. This will be challenging for some and I hope that children will practice their target tables regularly at home to reinforce the learning in school. Please use your Times Table Rock Stars login https://play.ttrockstars.com/
This term pupils will be working on fractions including; equivalent fractions, counting in and adding fractions.
This half term we are learning about the Gospel of Jesus as part of our Christianity work. We will be asking how Christians show love to others and what we might learn from this in our own lives.
We will continue to develop our scientific enquiry skills as we discover how circuits work, through practical experiments. We will explore the impact electricity has had on cities like Manchester and find out about famous scientists like Alan Turing in our city. Have you ever seen his 'Manchester Baby' at the Manchester Science and Industry museum?
During Covid, we are sharing swimming with St Joseph's pupils. Please do you best to send your child equipped for:
Week 1 PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Week 2 swimming on Mondays, PE on Thursdays.
We hope you enjoyed the 2020 virtual St. George's Nativity video. Here's another treat for you all to enjoy...
