Year 4/5: Willow Tree
Welcome back to another academic year here at St Nicholas!
This year, our Year 4 and 5 team will be called the Willow Class. We have a brilliant team of 27 children, and Mr Starkey will be the class teacher. We also have Mrs Mason, who is a student teacher, working with the group throughout the year as well as Miss Harper - awesome!
During term 5, our main focus is our play performance of Pirates of the Currybean! The children will rehearse scenes, songs and dances ready for the performances during the final week of the term.
As well as the play, we will also take part in a project called The Great St Nicholas Bake Off, where the children will see how the experts at Hambleton Bakery bake their bread, design their own bread and make it ready for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations.
In maths, the children will build on their fractions and decimals work and work on understanding percentages. In literacy, the class will write balanced arguments as well as a suspense story.
The children will also take part in forest school this term. Please send your child into school in a long sleeved top and long trousers every Monday, as well as their spare set of outdoor shoes.
Here is some more key information:
- PE kits are to be worn to school on Tuesday and Friday - this is as well as Monday's forest school.
- Please bring an outdoor set of shoes and an indoor set of shoes each day. (You can leave the outdoor set in school if you wish.)
- Year 5 Young Voices will take place Friday 29th April.
Many thanks for your continued support, and if you have any questions please get in touch.
