Welcome to Class 4's page!
We are enthusiastic learners who work hard and help each other. Class 4 is a team and Miss Graham, Pat, Mrs Misselbrook and Miss Davies join us in making Year 5 and 6 the best place to be.
We've now reached the exciting time in the year when we study 'The Titanic'. Alongside our novel, 'The Titanic Detective Agency', we will be looking at lots of non-fiction texts too.
All of our guided reading texts have been based upon 'journeys' with a particular reference to journeys that characters have made for migration. We have looked at stories such as 'The Day War Came', 'The Journey' and 'when Jessie Came Across the Sea'. Our favourite so far has been 'The Arrival' By Shaun Tan.
This wordless picture book tell of a story of a man who leaves his family to go to a strange and very different country. Because the book has no words, it was up to us to try and work out what what happening in the story- using inference and gathering information from the illustrations.
In our move up days, we discussed what we were interested in and what we wanted to learn more about as well as what we'd like to improve as personal targets.
We wrote all over large pieces of paper and Miss Graham collated our ideas using them and the National Curriculum to create our yearly plan.
