Spring Term Learning 


During Spring Term, our History focus will be the Ancient Greece. We will learn about daily life in Ancient Greece and their achievements.  We will learn about the impact of the Ancient Greek civilisation on the rest of the world.


In English, we will be reading the exciting novel  'Who Let the Gods Out' by author Maz Evans.

In writing we will focus on developing our descriptive writing skills in a variety of different contexts.



In Maths, we will strengthen our skills in multiplication, fractions and decimals.  A strong focus in Class Four is learning all of our times tables up to 12 x 12.  We will also secure our knowledge and understanding of both written and mental methods in a variety of contexts. 


In Science, we will be learning about solids, liquids and particles and we will carry out various investigations.


In Art, we will study the artist Roy Lichenstein who is famous for his Pop Art style. 


In Music, we will be developing our musicianship skills as we learn the ukulele. Alongside practical lessons, we will develop our skills in listening and appraising a wide range of music.


In PE, we will be swimming on a Thursday, developing our skills in various strokes. On Friday, we will be developing our skills in the game of Dodgeball. 















Class Four Homework


Reading  Please ensure you that you read every night and your reading record is signed and brought into school each day.


Spelling It is important to practise your spellings each night before our weekly spelling test on a Friday. Please complete the spelling sheet and remember to print the word. Practise on the opposite page using different colours, writing the word backwards, writing it in a diagonal or in rainbows or in pyramids. Spelling homework will also be set through Spelling Shed. 


Times Tables  Please ensure you are logging into TT Rockstars at least three times a week. Also spend time revising your times table facts.


Additional homework tasks will be set through Purple Mash, Espresso, or  throughout the year on a Friday. All of the links can be found below. Your child has a log in for each website.


At the Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks we set as homework.


Obviously the level of engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)


The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very reading for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.


Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
