Mrs Knight and Mrs Bowley are looking forward to seeing you all back in school on March 8th. Please do get in touch through twitter #georges_mossley or our class email email@example.com with any questions or information which will help us all to settle into this new season.
SWIMMING: Lessons will start on 8th March and each week before Easter.
Thank you for all your hard work supporting your child with their home learning. It has been wonderful to see the rich and varied work they have produced. Well done!
We hope you enjoyed the 2020 virtual St. George's Nativity video. Here's another treat for you all to enjoy...
Check out Wren Class' dance routine below. A big thanks to the Active Tameside team and a well done to the children in Wren Class!
ENGLISH and TOPIC
This half term we will be asking "Why is there a canal in Mossley?" We will use this topic to write a non-chronological report. Do get in touch if you have any local knowledge which might be useful!
Our class book is Manfred the Baddie by John Fardell and this will inspire children in their narrative writing.
Guided Reading: Work is provided for home study on Google Classroom each week. Sessions will use a variety of text types designed to expose pupils to a rich array of vocabulary and structural techniques as they develop their comprehension skills in a supported group activity. Teaching methods have been adapted initially 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 Properties of shape and geometry. This is a good way of applying some of our basic number skills and to develop problem solving and reasoning.
This half term we are learning about the Jewish religion. We will find out about the story of traditions of Purim.
Our topic this half term is 'Living things and habitats'. I wonder what amazing things we can discover in our own gardens and streets!
As we are swimming each week, we will only have PE on Thursdays.
