Welcome to Year 4/5

It had been lovely to return to school in September for the start of the New Year.  We had been raring to go and it was easy to get off to a great start as we were all together last year.


We came back to a very thought provoking book,  ‘The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse’.  This book led the curriculum and the children produced some fantastic written work linked to this topic.  The illustrations in the book are particularly attractive and the children learned how to use watercolours to create some beautiful images.






                                                            AUTUMN 2


      After Autumn Half Term, two books led our learning.  ‘The Wind In The Willows’ is a fantastic book that directed our        learning towards Geography and Rivers.  Through reading the story, we developed our comprehension and story              writing skills.  The other book that we studied was ‘Street Beneath My Feet’ that taught us about rocks, soils and              fossils.                                                     














In the first part of the Spring Term, our learning is led by “Roman Diary”.                  

We are finding out about The Romans and what it would have been like

to live at that time.




                                             During the second part of the Spring Term, we will be exploring the Rainforest

                                             via the classic children’s book, ‘The Lorax’.




Hopefully all children will be back in school by the start of the Summer Term.  It will be lovely to be back together as a class and I already have some fun things planned.



As you know, the school subscribes to a number of websites which can be used to support home learning and all children have logins and passwords to use these websites or apps:

 Finally, don't forget to ask your child if they can tell you how to keep themselves safe when using any device to be online. Thanks to the annual Safer Internet Day activities, the children should be well-versed in all the tricks and tips needed to help them to keep as safe and sound as possible! If you are unsure of how to help, please come along and have a chat or alternatively, why not check out as a starting point for all things e-safety related?

 Here’s to a happy and healthy new term at Alverton!
