Welcome to Class 4. Hello and welcome to Class 4's page, my name is Miss Slater and I teach year 5 and year 6. I have been teaching at Bridgemere for 4 years. I am the Maths co-ordinator and form part of the 'Building for the Future' group which consists of members of staff across the Real Life Learning Trust.
Due to school closures, home learning packs have been sent home with each child these consist of maths, reading, SPaG, writing, science and some work relating to our current topic. As well as this, I have also set various Purple Mash activities, which the children can access online.
Each child has their username and password in their reading diary.
At the bottom of this page I have attached links to other educational websites that the children can access. Can I also note at this point, that most educational sites have now enabled parents and carers full access to their content without needing to sign up or pay for access. I have also set up a temporary email address that you can use to communicate with regarding the work that I have set aswell as receiving any new work.
Our topic for the entire Spring term is 'Ecotricity'. This is a geography based topic that looks at being able to indetify sources of renewable energy, the impact of non renewable sources on the planet, exploring our carbon footprint and thinking about how we can create a sustainable world.
Our topic for the second part of the Autumn term is 'Wonders of the World'. This is a geography based topic investigating the impact of tourism and also being able to identify what are the Seven Wonders of the World.
Our topic for the first part of the Autumn Term is 'Sea, Sails and Scurvy'. This is a history based topic surrounding the Tudor and Elizabethan era. The children will explore what it was like to live those times and understand the importance of Queen Elizabeth 1's reign.
Reading – for 20 mins everyday. A team point is given for each reading session logged in the reading diary. Extra team points are awarded if a parent / adult has written a comment.
Times Tables – Quick recall of times tables facts can have a significant impact on maths confidence and performance. Please encourage your child to learn / recall/ recite tables on a regular basis.
Spellings – A short spelling list will be sent home weekly for your children to learn. A short spelling test is held every Wednesday. In addition, other spelling activities may be sent home such as spelling investigations.
As we approach the Y6 SATs, additional booster homework will be sent home so that topics and learning are constantly refreshed and consolidated.
If you have any queries about homework or anything else you would like to discuss please do not hesitate in contacting the school office to make an appointment.
