Class 4

Welcome to Class 4! Croeso i Dosbarth 4!

Teacher:  Mrs Miles 

  

 

 Autumn Term 2022

Our value this half term is 'perseverance'.

"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”  
James 1:12

Context

Our context for learning this term is called 'The Blue Abyss'.  
We will be taking on the role of deep sea explorers to:
  • Plan a journey into the blue abyss 
  • Explore the creatures in our oceans, how they are adapted to where they live and create possible species that haven't been discovered yet
  • Learn about the dangers facing our oceans and how we can protect them 

 

We will also be reading 'Malamander' by Thomas Taylor

  Remember

Our PE day is TUESDAY - please wear your PE kit to school every Tuesday.  

Reading books: every child has a reading book from our class library and are now allowed to take them home to read.  Your home reading book can be changed whenever necessary.  All pupils have a Giglets account where they can find virtual books to read at home.
