Saturn – Year 4 & 5

Summer Term is here!

My name is Mr Wickings and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, we also have Miss Harvey supporting us with our work too.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is “Anglo Saxons”. We will be researching who the Anglo Saxons were and where they came from, creating information texts, and artworks including sheilds. We will also be having a trip to further your child’s understanding of the topic. Our Science topic is Earth and Space.

In English we are working on writing a setting and character description for a fantasy world. Children have started learning an extract from the Spiderwick chronicles. We’ll be working through lots of engaging activities, before writing our own fantasy descriptions!

Our new class reading book is the first in the Atermis fowl series by Eoin Colfer.

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE twice a week. Children must have their PE kit for both days-

Monday (tennis) and Wednesday (invasion games).

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night. If this isn’t completed more than twice in a week then your child will miss playtime to read.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday. If homework isn’t completed then children will be expected to complete it at playtime.

Please collect your child from the playground at the end of the day.

We have made a great start to our learning this half term, and I can’t wait to get to know you and your child throughout the year.
