Who are our classes named after
Welcome to Bronte Class. Emily Jane Bronte was an English novelist and poet who is best known for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English literature.
Welcome to Pankhurst Class. Emmeline Pankhurst was a British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement. She helped women win the right to vote.
This half term, we will be looking at the tale of Rama and Sita as part of our wider study of Hinduism. The children will get the chance to watch, read, dramatize and retell the traditional story.
In maths this half-term, we are studying fractions and geometry.
Why do people do that?
This is a question that the children will be encouraged to think about this half term as we cover a range of topics across PSHE and Religious Education.
This half term, Physical Education will take place every Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school as it is part of school uniform.
As part of the PE curriculum, we will continue to swim at Portland Leisure Centre.
Pankhurst Class ; Wednesdays
Bronte Class : Fridays
Children should arrive back at school around 15:40. Please inform Mrs. Brook or Mr. Pickering should you wish to collect your child either from the swimming pool or en route back to school.
Every Tuesday afternoon, we will have a forest school session with Mrs Walker in the garden. Children will need sensible footwear (wellies are preferable) and suitable clothing for this. Particularly, as we head into the colder months, children will need a coat.
Children in year 4 will be sent home with home learning booklets. Homework will be due in each Monday.
