Welcome to Class 4H!
Hi and welcome to a new year in 4H, exciting times lay ahead and we can't wait to get stuck in!
My name is Mr Harwood and I work alongside the one and only Mrs Willimas (our fantastic TA).
A lot of exciting things are happening in 4H this half term! Our topic is the Terrible Tudors where we get to learn about the history of Britain during the 15th and 16th Century, including the fearsome King Henry VIII, bloody queens, dreary dungeons and gruesome executions! We have also been lucky enough to get to visit Speke Hall and experience a Tudor home first hand. See Twitter for photos. Please follow our learning through our class page here for photographs and videos of all our exciting lessons and be sure to follow us on Twitter @rosoceprimary19 for all the latest news.
We are also learning about Sound in Science. We get to explore sound waves and and learn about how sound travels through objects.
Our current English topic is Stories set in an imaginary world, and we have chosen to base our learning around the fantastic book 'Harry Potter' by JK Rowling. We will be looking at the story of Harry, who isn't just an ordinary boy, he's a wizard! At the end of the topic, we will create our own stories based on the book.
In Music we are practicing our Christmas Carols for our candle light carol concert on the 1st December.
Our current RE topic is Christmas where we will be looking at the story of Christmas.
Our DT this half tern is picture frames, we will be looking at structures and how they stand and then designing and making our own frames.
Homework this term will be sent home on a Friday to be returned on a Wednesday. Reading should be completed every night and reading records need to be signed by an adult and returned to school each day.
Every week children will receive a set of spellings. A homework project will be sent home each half term. Keep an eye out for the latest one.
This page will be updated throughout the year and don't forget to follow us @roscoeprimary19 for all the latest news!
UPDATE: Swimming lessons start on the 7th of December. 4H will be back by 3.15pm so it will not affect pick ups. Children will need a swimming costume (one piece for girls, no long shorts for boys) and a swimming cap. Goggles are optional.
