Year 4 / Year 5

Welcome to the Year 4/5 class pages. Our teacher is Mrs McFarlane and we are helped by teaching assistants Mrs Oldham and Mrs Semple.

Our morning activities focus on English and Maths. On Friday mornings we go swimming. Our afternoons are different each day:

Monday: Whole School Assembly

Tuesday: Computing, PSHCE and Music

Wednesday: Outdoor PE, Music and Singing Assembly

Thursday: Topic (History / Geography / Art / DT)

Friday: RE, French and Well Done Assembly, Swimming

Sometimes our activities vary to accommodate special events. 


This term in Topic we will be focusing on Geography where we will be using grid references, symbols and key (including the use of OS maps) to build on their prior knowledge of the UK and the wider world including their environmental regions, key physical and human characteristics, countries, and major cities. As well as identifying human and physical characteristics, we will look at key topographical features and land-use patterns. 
In English we will be using Wallace and Gromit inventions as a stimulus to writing explanations.


The class news sub-page will be updated throughout the school year with news and pictures of events and activities in class.
