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.

Art on your Doorstep

In this half-term's topic, our focus will be on flowers, fruits, vegetables and seeds. We will be using flowers and fruits for observational drawings before making our very own fruit portraits inspired by the artist, 'Giuseppe Acrimboldo'. In English, children will be using their art activities as inspiration for their instruction writing and will be writing a basic computer programme to inform others on what they have been learnt about plants using the programme, 'Scratch'.

 

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. Homework for our current topic, 'Art on your Doorstep' will be available soon.

 

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, 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.
