Welcome to Class 2C
Miss Butler, Miss Hillary, Miss Rathore and Miss Barker
Our topic for this term is A Trip Down The Nile. Children will be learning all about Ancient Egypt; discovering fascinating facts through both History and Geography. As part of our Science curriculum, children will be investigating Electricity and Magnets. Our knowledge organisers below contain all of the 'Sticky Knowledge' that we expect children to retain from these units of work and also all of the key vocabulary.

P.E for 2C is on Monday afternoon and Friday morning when the children go swimming. Please can you ensure your child has a suitable outdoor kit and shoes in school as PE will take place outside, either on the field or the MUGA. Please make sure ALL P.E kit is labelled and studded earrings are either removed or tape is brought in to cover them safely. PE kits will be sent home for washing every Friday afternoon and will need bringing back to school the following Monday.
Reading at home
Please read at home with your child at least 3 times a week- it really makes a difference! (Green Cards and a stamp on the reading challenge will be rewarded) Diaries will be collected on a Friday.
Children in Year 4 are set weekly spellings to practise at home. Please ensure you look over their spellings regularly as taking the time to learn these will greatly affect their achievement and confidence in their Friday weekly spelling test.
Each week children will have a timed times tables test (Wednesday). Across the school, the children are working on a progressive new system which involves practising old times tables as well as introducing new ones. The children will begin on Bronze, and once they score full marks on all 40 questions involving multiplication and division, they will move onto Silver, and so on. The children all have a login for Timestables Rockstars and this links with the test they are set at school so practising on here at home will be helpful. Please see the attachments below to see the structure of the times tables tests your child will be learning.
During computing lessons, the class have learnt about how to stay safe whilst using the internet and the SMART rules are displayed in the classroom. The children understand that the internet is a fantastic resource but it also poses many dangers which they need to protect themselves against. This website is great for helping all of us educate ourselves about this, take a look at it at home.
