Year 4 - Larch Class 2020 - 2021
|Welcome to Larch Class. We are a class of Year 4 pupils who work with Mrs Havard and Mrs Thomson to learn everything we can at Westfield!|
We also have two other adults who work with us on a regular basis.
Miss Barrow is our Midday Assistant and Miss Evans takes our class for two days every other week.
Summer 1 topics - How should we conduct ourselves?
This half term we will be reading the books Rainforests in 30 seconds by Dr Jen Green and Where the Forest meets the Sea by Jeannnie Baker to support out class topic about rainforests.
We will be learning about electricity in Science and naming some European countries and their capital cities in Geography, with a particular focus on Greece.
In R.E. we will be learning all about Ramadan and the pillars of Islam. A lovely and really important topic we will be looking at through our Jigsaw PSHE lessons is Relationships. This covers friendships, families, love and also a lesson about loss.
We will be making sculptures this half term so there may be a few messy days!
Please see the link below for the full curriculum for the year.
Our PE day is currently Thursday. Due to our current provision in school, please ensure that your child comes into school dressed in their PE kit. We encourage children to dress appropriately for the weather.
At Westfield, we expect all children to complete five reading sessions a week. These should be recorded in each child’s individual reading diary. Pupils' diaries are checked every morning by an adult from Larch Class.
Everyday, children will have a spelling session where on a Tuesday, new spellings will be introduced. Children will be tested on these spellings on a Friday. Each child will be sent home with a spelling list on a Tuesday so that they can familiarise themselves with the planned learning. In addition, we also have a list of key words which we will learn across the half term. Learning these spellings can be supported at home by using Spelling Shed.
Online Learning Resources
Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school. All children are familiar with how to use these and their usernames and passwords can be found in their reading diaries. Please ask if you have any questions about these.

In the event of a Covid-19 Bubble Closure
In the event of our bubble having to close, the children will be provided with remote learning via Google Classroom which can be accessed through most electronic devices via the website or the app. Every child has been given their own Gmail address. They are able to log onto our online classroom using these details.
It is a national government requirement that children access our remote learning platform on the days that they would usually attend school, if their bubble is to close due to Coronavirus. It is important that good communication between school and parents/carers maintains during a bubble closure. We ask that all children respond to the daily task briefing on their Google Classroom homepage.
If you have any questions, please contact the school office or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or via a private message on Google Classroom.
