Jupiter – Years 3 & 4

Welcome to Jupiter Class!

My name is Mr Johnson and I am your child’s Year 4 class teacher. I am looking forward to continuing to support your child through their learning for the rest of the year alongside our four wonderful TAs: Mrs Hobden, Ms Dattoli and Ms Deliu and Mr B.

In English, we will be looking at a range of different narrative texts and how we can create our own narrative writing pieces.

In Maths, we will be continuing the development of our fraction and decimal understanding. We will be moving onto real-world topics, such as money, time and direction.

Across the rest of the curriculum, our focus this term in centred on developing a greater understanding of ourselves. In Science, we will be exploring our digestive systems and eating habits. In Topic, we looking at jobs we can do to earn a living when we’re older and why it is important to work. In Design and Technology, the students will be learning how to cook seasonal foods.

Helpful Reminders:

  • Jupiter’s PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school each week. At the end of the half term PE kits will be sent home to be washed. 
  • All children must read each evening on their own, or with an adult. Please help us to support your child’s reading development by signing their reading record on a daily basis and ensuring that this record is brought to school each day. If children do not have their reading record signed three times in a week they will need to read with an adult at breaktime. 
  • Homework will be set every Thursday on Google Classroom. Logins for this are the same as last year. There will be four tasks each week:
    • Spellings (to be practised for the weekly test)
    • Maths
    • Philosophy for children
    • Prayer
  • Details of the weekly tasks are provided in full on Google Classroom. Children should record their homework in their homework books.
  • Logins to EdShed and a copy of your child’s timetable can be found at the front of their reading record.
