Autumn Newsletter

Welcome to Class 4 with
Mrs Towers

I hope you have had a wonderful break and are looking forward to the new school year, with lots of exciting learning opportunities ahead of us. I know I am looking forward to working with the children in Class 4 and seeing all the fantastic work they can do.
Our topic this Autumn Term is 'Misty Mountain Sierra'.


Grab your walking boots! We'll soon be heading off on an adventure to Castleton, where we'll be walking up the broken road and muddy paths, up to the top of Mam Tor. The views are breathtaking!

We'll be learning all about mountain features, different types of mountains and the famous mountain ranges of the world. As well as learning all about the water cycle.


In Maths this term we will be completing work on mental addition and subtraction, number and place value, mental multiplication and division, fractions, ratio and proportion, measurement, decimals, percentages and their equivalence to fractions and written addition and subtraction.

P.E. will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure correct kits are in school on these days. Kits should consist of a t-shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers. 

Spellings will be sent home with children every Tuesday (also written in their planners) and must be learnt for a test the following week.  


Your child will also be given times tables to learn every week. ready for a short test the following week. These will also be written in planners on a Tuesday.


Maths homework is set every Tuesday too, again to be handed in the following Tuesday. 


Our topic homework is project based and your child will be sent home with a list of activities, where they can choose one of them to be completed and handed in before the end of half term.
Please try and listen to your child read 3 times a week for 10 minutes and write a comment in their planner after every read. I have asked the children to bring their planners into school every day and if they have read the night before a DoJo point will be rewarded at the start of the day. Children may have the opportunity during the week to read to an adult in school and this will be recorded in their planner.

I am very much looking forward to the term ahead and I would like to thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to come and speak to me.


Thank you

Mrs Towers
