Class 4 - Miss Wright

Dear Parents/carers,


Welcome back!


This half term, the children in Class 4 will be learning about Trade and Economics as part of our Geography work. In this topic, the children will learn about the countries that the UK has strong trading links with. They will also learn about Fair Trade and the positive impact this can have on the farmers of less-developed countries. 


In history, the children will continue to learn about Crime and Punishment through Time with an emphasis on the modern-day justice system and policing, making comparisons with what came before. 


In our English sessions, the children are currently enjoying reading David Roberts', Suffragette: The Battle for Equality' and have produced some writing inspired by this. 


In science, the children will study the properties and changes of materials, with a particular emphasis on dissolving.  


Class 4’s weekly PE sessions will continue to be led by Mr. Wathall on Monday afternoons and Mr Mitchell on Friday afternoons. Children will need to have their PE kits (in PE bags) in school on these days. We advise that they bring their kits in each Monday and take them home each Friday to be washed. Children may wish to bring appropriate PE footwear such as trainers in on their PE days only, especially if needed at home during the week. Please could I take this opportunity to remind all parents that children should be in correct school uniform each day. Our school uniform policy can be found on our school website at:



In Maths this half term, all children will be learning about fractions, with the Y5 children focusing on the addition and subtraction of fractions, whilst the Y6 children will be moving on to multiplying and dividing fractions. 


Homework will be given out each Friday and will usually consist of one online piece and one worksheet. Where appropriate, English homework may be linked to our topic work. Homework should be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest. In addition to this, the children will receive weekly spelling lists each Monday which they will be tested on each Friday. 


Finally, don’t hesitate to contact me on Class Dojo should you wish to discuss your child’s wellbeing or progress; I’m more than happy to help!




Kind regards,



Miss K Wright
