Welcome to Kandinsky Class. Year 4 & 5
Autumn Term 2
Where did that first half term go?
Welcome back. In the run up to Christmas, we will be studying the geography of a UK city.
A few clues. There is a famous ferry that crosses the river. The city gave birth to an amazing amount of bands and singers, and Mrs Dunwoody studied there at University. Yes; we are studying Liverpool. We will be looking at the city, its features, the music, the history and the legacy left behind from its City of European Culture status.
After finishing Edward Tulane in English we are going to look at visual literacy, and how film clips help tell stories, and in Science we will be studying various scientists who have shaped our world. All that and we havent even mentioned parties, productions, presents, carols and a certain jolly man in a red suit!
It will surely be a busy few weeks ahead!
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.......
