A proud member of

Class 4 (Fantastic Four)

Welcome to Fantastic Four’s Page – Mr West and Mrs Morton

Please have a look around at all our super learning.

 

 

 

 

 

Last half term we were learning about: The Vikings.

 

As part of our history based theme we learned all about how and why the Vikings came to Britain, how they lived and the impact that they had on our modern lives. In Maths we have done lots of investigation and practice around our 3, 6 and 9 times tables. English was all about writing to inform and we created non-chronological reports and fact sheets based on our history learning. Sound was our focus in science, how sound is created, heard and travels and how we can insulate against sound. All that and we also completed a range of Christmas activities and out on a super performance.

    Homework:

    Learners in KS2 will have weekly Multiplication and spelling tests. For their homework they are expected to prepare for this by practicing the spellings and their target times tables. We also hope that children are using Times Tables Rock stars website to help speed of recall of these vital learning facts. All learners should also be reading regularly at home and talking about the books they have experienced with adults or siblings.

     

    Home learning project:

    For our home learning this half term we would like families to work together to create a sealed bottle garden. This is a sealed bottle (nothing gets in, nothing gets out), the plants have everything they need in side the bottle, their own personal environment. Instructions and activated carbon will be sent home in the first week of term.
