Welcome to Year 4 - Pankhurst
Welcome to Pankhurst class. Emmeline Pankhurst was a political activist and leader of the suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. To find out more about this formidable human being, read below:
In Pankhurst class, we are; Miss Froggatt (Class teacher Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays), Mrs Evans (Class teacher- Thursdays and Fridays), Miss Hedges, Miss Whistler, Miss Nason and Mrs Bayliss (Teaching Assistants).
Our Quest this term is called:
Journeys Past and Present
We will be exploring the world of Romans in Ancient Britain and how the Romans have impacted on how we live today. We will be learning about an awesome woman from history- Boudica and will have the chance to make pizzas! Yum! In art, we will be finding out about Paul Smith- a famous Nottinghamian!
In year 4, we expect the children to read every day. It’s vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. We are collecting 'reading miles' in phase 3. For every 4 reads you complete at home, the class can move on to their next destination. The first class in phase 3 that manages to travel around the world, wins a prize. Come on Pankhurst, you can do it! We're on our way to Africa!!!
Children will be tested on their times tables up to 12 throughout the Summer Term. However, it is vital children know them by heart as they will be completing Bronze, Silver and Gold times table challenges in school. Children can only move onto the next challenge when they have got 100% in the previous one.
Your child should know and be able to use the commutative method. E.g. 2x4=8 in the 4x table and 4x2=8 in the 4x table. This term we are using our times tables knowledge and applying it to formal methods of division. The children who have been learning their times tables are certainly finding this work easy! Hooray!
