Saturn – Year 4 & 5

Welcome to Saturn!

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 “Walls and Barricades”. We will be researching how walls of different types have affected countries and creating some information texts, and artworks.

In English we are working on writing an action scene from a myth. Children have started learning an extract from Beowulf. We’ll be working through lots of engaging activities, before writing our own action scenes.

Our new class reading book is “The Girl of Ink and Stars” by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.

A few helpful reminders:

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

Tuesday (swimming) and Wednesday (gymnastics).

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
