Welcome to Kandinsky Class. Year 4 & 5

Year 4/5 Spring Term 1
Happy New Year

 

I wonder if you can guess what we are studying this half term.

Here are a few clues.

It takes a long time to visit.

It's home to more dangerous creatures than anywhere else in the world.

They are stereotypically known to have lots of Bar-b-ques-( and sometimes throw shrimps on)

It's hot when we are cold.

 

Yes we are studying Australia. We will be looking at the Geography of the country. The people, and the cultures. We will be studying climate, how we are damaging our planet, and looking at how we can try to save it too! We will definately need the Australian heat to keep us warm through January and February.

 

Adults please note- PE will continue to be on Mondays and Friday's. Can children have their kits in school all week- as some days we may decide to go on the field or participate in The Daily Mile. Children need to have their planners and reading books in school every day too please.

Miss Richardson will be teaching the class on a Tuesday afternoon and will be checking planners for adult signatures and evidence of home reading. ( a minimum of 3 times gets 3 house points- any more gets 1 more house point per read!)

As usual my door is always open, if you want to have a chat or simply see what your child has bee working on.

Thank you- Mr Watson and Mrs Kent.

Right enough chatting....Let's get on with it.......
