Dear Class 4,
I hope you are well. I am so excited for this Summer Term. I hope that we will be able to have some amazing adventures and make fabulous memories for our Year 6 in their final term at Morland School. As well as our planned curriculum, we are very excited to announce that we will be taking part in this years Bright Stars Project - further information to follow.
In Class Four we are taught by Mrs Donnelly-Stott (Monday) and Mrs Dobinson (Tuesday- Friday). We also have French lessons with Miss Walsh on Wednesdays and Guitar lessons on Friday mornings with Mr Haythornthwaite.
PE will take place on Thursdays and Fridays but remember to have a kit in school every day as we do make occasional changes. Please have warm PE clothes as this will be outside as much as possible. This term we will have a cricket coach on a Thursday afternoon You will also need your trainers for Mile-a-day which will be at 8.50am.
This term our topic is all about Africa. We will be learning about the Ancient Kingdom of the Benin, discovering lots about the landscape and biomes of Africa and learning about Fairtrade.
In our Science lessons we will be learning all about animals including humans. We will be learning to create multimedia presentations.

Guided reading – This will take place on Wednesdays or Thursdays in class. Children will be given homework based on the text which will usually include some reading too. Children are also expected to read daily from their chosen text.
Maths- Please continue to help your child to learn all their tables. They will have a tables test each Friday alongside a Big Maths test – the Learn Its are based on the previous week’s test. Maths homework will continue to be sent home on a Monday to be completed for the following Monday.
Guitar – Class 4 will begin guitar lessons on a Friday morning. Once instruments have been issued pupils are responsible for their safety and care. They must be brought to school every Friday and kept at home in between lessons.
Looking forward to seeing you all back at school.
