Welcome to Kandinsky Class

Summer Term 1

Mrs Dunwoody is pleased to be back in school and is enjoying teaching the Year 4 and Year 5 pupils! This half term our topic work is all about what life was like for Victorian children. We are reading Streetchild in Literacy which is capturing our imaginations and is providing a stimulus for writing, such as wriiting a diary entry in the role of a character. The children have been using books and also the ipads, to research about school life, toys and games and  children at work during the Victorian era.  

In Maths we have been focussing on properties of shape (2D and 3D) including working out area and volume and angles, as well as reading and plotting co-ordinates on a grid.We will also be looking at measure.

Miss Lawrance is using her expertise to teach music lessons to the class. She is also teaching PE (tag rugby), Computing, RE and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, carrying out weekly spelling and times tables tests.

The children are looking forward to the forthcoming residential visit to York. We'll be planning activities that will link the trip with their knowledge of the Victorian era to inspire some imaginative and creative work.

Please see below for a copy of our long term plan.

Mrs Dunwoody, Miss Lawrance, Mrs Furnish and Mrs Seaman
