Learn Together, Shine Together

CLASS 4/5J Mrs Jenkins



In addition to weekly homework, the children should read regularly, at least 3 times a week, every day if possible.

All of the children will have a home reading book that should go home each evening. Please sign their reading diary whenever you listen to them read. 

Now we are in years 4 and 5, reading is becoming more fluent, and whilst this is an ongoing skill the children will need to practice, we must also focus on their understanding of what they have read. Please question your child on what they have read and pick out certain words that they may not understand. This will help develop their broader reading skills.








Homework will be sent out every Friday and will be expected back in the following Wednesday. 

Homework will consist of: Spellings, Maths and Comprehension work. 

Please ensure your child practices their spellings using the cover, copy write and check method.


In Maths we will be following the Inspire Maths scheme of work. This Inspire Maths scheme is a programme that supports us in teaching for mastery and meeting the higher expectations of the National Curriculum.  With this we use the CPA approach (Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract).

Please encourage your child to practice their times tables daily.  With more practice, they will become quicker and more confident in solving problems and challenges in class.


This term we are basing our learning on the novel The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' by C.S. Lewis.

Children will be focusing on identifying audience and purpose for writing, drafting and writing narratives, describing settings, characters and atmosphere.  


We will be using Alan Peat's Sentence Types to develop our writing.  

We have started by looking at As-ly sentences.  For example, As the snowflakes floated down gracefully, Narnia was covered in a fresh blanket of snow.


P.E is on Mondays and Fridays. 

Your child will need a white t shirt, blue shorts and black pumps in a PE bag. 

Please make sure name labels are in all items as this will ensure that they don’t get mixed up and lost.
