Hello, welcome to Class 4.
This term our topic is light and colour. We have two focus artists – Monet and the contemporary artist Iain Andrews. Both artists use colour very effectively but in very different ways, so we will be looking not just at the colours they choose but how they compose their paintings – where they place complimentary or analogous colours, or how Iain Andrews creates such vibrant paintings.
We will also be looking at the scientific side – where light comes from and how it moves, and in particular how we can manipulate it. We will also be looking at how light gives us colour.
This term’s knowledge organiser has a link at the bottom of this page.
Class 4 has PE on Tuesday mornings and swimming on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit (white shirt, black shorts / swimming kit) including appropriate footwear and does not wear earrings to school on these days.
Daily reading with your child is essential for their progress. Children are encouraged to read aloud to an adult as often as possible, please listen to them read, ask questions and put a small note in their reading record. Reading Records are checked at least every other day and children can change books daily as often as they read them.
Every Monday children will get at least one piece of homework. This needs to be completed by the following Monday. Children will also need to be practicing their times tables as often as possible. We will be playing plenty of multiplication shootout in class to practice!
