Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!!
 
We are a vibrant and mature class of 9 pupils. We have a mixture of year 4 and year 5 pupils. Our class teachers are Mr Ferris, Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Doyle. We work very hard in class 4, but we enjoy learning and are always eager to rise to a challenge.
 
Each morning we follow a multi-sensory programme for phonics. We split into groups to help with recognition, sounds, handwriting and the fine and gross motors skills required to write comfortably.
 
In English we cover a wide range of topics that we enjoy. We started the year with Roald Dahl as our topic where we looked at facts about his life as well as some of his stories. We have really enjoyed his stories including The Magic Finger and The Twits (Mr Ferris' favourite story). During English we strive to improve our handwriting, sentence structures and styles of writing. We are proud of our own and others achievements so far.
 
In Maths we use a lot of different techniques to help us excel. We use concrete resources such as base ten and numicon. We started the year by learning about place value in order to help us recognise and comprehend numbers.
 
In the afternoons we follow a creative curriculum, some of the topics we will cover this year are Dinosaurs, Stone Age and the Wonders of the Wirral. We started the year by looking at Dnosuars, their diets and a timeline through the different time periods. We had fun trying to pronounce the names of some of the dinosaurs.
 
As well as our topic our creative curriculum also includes music lessons, Mr Ferris is going to teach us to play tha recorders. In computing we are learning about e-safety to make sure that we are able to access the internet in a safe and secure way. Later in the year we will focus on using a range of multimedia programmes such as power point and purple mash before looking at coding later in the year.  
 
In class 4 we follow our Orrets behaviour system, but we are all really well behaved.
