Squirrel Class

Welcome to the Squirrel class page 

 

Squirrel class comprises of Years three and Years four, and covers the Lower Key Stage Two curriculum. Our class teacher is Mr. Turner and we are supported by Mrs. Cutmore and Mrs. Miller. In addition to this, Mrs. Cutmore covers Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) on Tuesday afternoons.

Why Are Humans Animals Too?

In this half-term's topic, our focus will be on animals and humans, looking at diets, joints and muscles. We will be responding to a request by a local Safari Park to create a set of healthy menu's in Science and consider the features of 'movement art' and create a database of nutritious foods in our topic lessons. In our English, we will be looking at 'The Killer Cat Strikes Back', 'The Hodgeheg' and several short books that consider the impact of zoos, before we answer the question, 'Are zoos good or bad?'

 

Homework

Homework for Squirrel class is set each half term in relation to our current topic. The activities included are ideas that you and your child (or children) could complete together. For example, you could select one activity a week or complete a couple over each weekend.

 

Times Tables

Squirrel class will have weekly times tables tests. Times tables will be sent home in blocks for children to learn by heart. By the end of year three, children are expected to know their 3s, 4s, 6s and 8s off by heart. By the end of year four, children are expected to know all of their timetables, from 1-12, off by heart.

 

Spellings

Spelling booklets have been sent home for children to practise. Our spelling tests take place on a Friday. 

 

Roman Shield Making

Squirrel class have been busy towards the end of our Roman's topic creating Roman inspired shields. Just like real Roman shields, the children used Roman myths, real life events and Roman colour schemes to inspire their designs.
