Growing together with God’

Class 4 have had a marvellous week of learning. We celebrated being ‘united against bullying’ to celebrate anti-bullying week. Our odd sock day this week was judged by Mrs Angel. Miley, Isabelle and Eleanor were the winners of our mini class competition. Well done ladies!

What have we been up to this week?

Music
This week we were absolutely delighted to be accompanied by Mrs Sutton who helped us prepare our Christmas carols. We really are a talented bunch of singers and performers and can’t wait to share these with you over the festive period.

Maths
This week we looked at the bus stop method for division. On Friday we also looked at the chunking method. We all worked incredibly hard indeed. I have set some homework on MyMaths for these two areas so that your child can keep practicing at home and decide which method they prefer.

Literacy
This week carried out research about a local sports hero named Ray Matthews who raises money for charities and schools in Rotherham. Next Tuesday Ray will be coming to our school and we are looking forward to asking him lots of questions about his life so that we can finish our biographies all about him. He will also be encouraging us all to complete a mile a day every single day.

RE
This week we learned about Judaism. We completed or own PowerPoint presentations based on information about the Torah, the Tenakh and Bar Mitzvahs.

Ten:Ten
This week we learned that we were created by God who cares for us and wants us to put our faith in Him. We learnt that becoming an adult is a natural phase of life.

PE
Isabelle S, Olivia and Eleanor led us in PE warm ups they had designed at home this week which were fantastic. They showed a great understanding of what is needed including stretches, raising heart rates and clearly demonstrating moves to their peers.

We carried out gymnastics this week. Our focus areas were building on some of the skills we perfected in cheer leading (tuck, pike, straddle and straight jumps) as well as the different types of roles and balances. We will continue to build on these skills and then we will be recording our routines at the end of term.
In football we continued to focus on passing, stopping and dribbling the ball as well as discussing some of the basic rules of football.

Notices:

  • Sports leaders remember their PE kits and sports badges on Tuesday
  • PE days are Monday and Wednesday.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

God bless,

Miss Jenkinson

‘Growing Together with God’
Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel

We have had such a marvellous week of learning and reflection. We have really felt the special presence of God in our classroom and school this week. We prayed especially for those who gave their life to fight in WW1 as well as all those in our own families and communities who have died. 


We held our very own short service in class as well as completing our 2 minutes silence.

RE
As we came to the end of our learning about being called some children from our class led us in a chid- led liturgy. They chose scripture based on the Pentecost where the disciples were filled with the strength of the Holy Spirit and went out to spread the good news about Christ. 


The children each stood and held a pebble and asked God to fill someone who they knew needed strength with the power of the Holy Spirt. Our mission this week (chosen by the children) is to be an example of Jesus by helping someone in need, sharing with someone, being kind and patient or by doing something that is based around looking after our world.

Literacy
We completed our literacy based on the clip Alma. As you can see the end result was absolutely stunning. 


The children have worked really hard illustrating their work using watercolours and spent time ensuring this was their best piece of writing so far. I was so overwhelmed with the high standard of work! https://www.literacyshed.com/alma.html


Maths
This week we have cracked multiplication (x a 2/3 digit by a 1/2 digit). This was something we have had to really persevere at but I am really glad we all finally understand. We are now ready to move onto the written method for division.

PE
We played a new game called football rounders. It was great fun and allowed us to practice some of the skills needed for a football game. We also completed a dance which was based around women and men’s roles in the World War 1 effort.

French
We revisited learning from Year 3 (greetings, numbers and colours). We then looked at learning about how to ask questions and say we liked or disliked fruits.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ03KjwiIVM
Science
We explored the different parts of a flower and the learned all about the pollination process. As you can see we completed some beautiful work on what we found out

Notices:

  • PE days will continue to be Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Homework is due in each Monday.
  • Spelling tests and reading record checks on Mondays.


This week we have had several children distance learning. Should your child need to self-isolate for any reason please check your email where further instructions will be sent. 


Many of these tasks include My Maths, Spelling Frame, Read Theory, TTR and Oak Academy. To prepare yourself and your child should this happen please ensure you are familiar with any necessary login and password details which can be found inside your child’s homework book.

Thank you for your continued support,


God bless,

Miss Jenkinson.

‘Growing Together with God’
Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel

What a fabulous first week back. It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to speak to all parents today. Your children truly are little superstars and I feel very blessed to be their Class Teacher. 


Thank you parents for all for your continued support with homework, reading, times tables practice and spelling practice. It really does make my job that little bit easier and means that your child progresses quickly.

Mrs Angel has chosen our Road Safety Officers and I must say they have done a fabulous job this week ensuring the car park is a safe place for all our school community but especially our children. You can see they look pretty smart in their new hi-vis vests and are taking this role very seriously.

I have set another homework grid this term. I would ask you to ensure your child picks one task per week. Children are asked to practice spellings each week. So many children who are consistent in this are now scoring almost full marks every week. Keep it up! 


Please ensure you child is reading at least 3x per week (every night is preferable). It really does make such a big difference with their writing progress. I am also setting MyMaths tasks to complete which will consolidate some of what we have covered in class and at times cover gaps missing.

Online learning
This week we have had several children distance learning. Should your child need to self-isolate for any reason please check your email where further instructions will be sent. Many of these tasks include My Maths, Spelling Frame, Read Theory, TTR and Oak Academy.

What have we been up to this week?

Literacy

Maths
This week we have looked at x and ÷ 10/100 and 1000. We have also learned our square and cube numbers. The children are continuing to work hard on their presentation and an example of our work is shown on the right...

PE
This week we learned a new dance ‘Thriller.’ We were exhausted after spending a full hour dancing but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We have also started football and focused on dribbling, passing and moving into space.

Road Safety
Mrs Angle talked to use about the importance of road safety and we designed Bob and Belinda bollards.

‘Growing Together with God’
Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel

What have we been up to this week?
We have really enjoyed our final week together. The main highlight of this week had to be our Fun Run. Thank you to all our sponsors. We were all successful in completing the full 5k in Class 4. It really was an enjoyable morning. 


We have also completed our assessments this week. We have marked these together to have a look at where we went wrong.

We have completed a diary entry all about Jesus calling Simon and Andrew. We have also learned and written about the special Sacrament of Confirmation. We produced some beautiful writing all about this.

Drama/Poetry
We practiced our performance poems all about Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Arthur Wharton and George Washington Carver.

Literacy
Although it took us a while, we finally managed to type up our diary entries using Microsoft Word. This is a skill we will continue to master as the year goes on as we feel it is so important.

Maths
We have continued with multiplication this week ensuring we are confident with related division facts as well as x10/100/1000. 


Let’s Celebrate

First Holy Communion

‘Growing Together with God’

Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel


What have we been up to this week?
We learned a brand new hymn during collective worship this week using the ‘Mark10mission’ called ‘Joyful Joyful’. We really enjoy our time together and we always keep all our family and friends in our prayers. As October is the month of celebrating the Rosary this week we have been spending some of our time taking part in saying the Rosary. We have each been given our very own Rosary Beads which we are going to treasure. We have learned just how the powerful the Rosary can be in helping us through life and we would love to share this experience with our parents at home.

This week and next are assessment weeks. We have been completing tests and Miss Jenkinson is rather happy with the progress we are making. I do hope we can continue working so hard and achieving great things.

Our new GIFT leaders are Isabelle and Patrick. They will be working hard throughout the year representing our Class in several events. Next week we are looking forward to sharing our first child led liturgy together which they will be leading.

A special mention to all children and parents who have worked so hard on this term’s homework project. The final deadline for the three pieces will be Monday. I have been blown away by the effort and enthusiasm of Class 4!

RE
This week we learned all about how Jesus chose some of his disciples. We listened to scripture about Simon and Peter, who were fisherman, and how Jesus asked them to leave their fishing nets and follow him. We created our own diary entries all about this in role of a bystander watching this event unfold. We discussed how we are called to become Disciples of Christ and ways in which we may be called in our own futures.

Science
This week we have learned all about what deforestation is and its devastating effects on our world. This inspired us to create a speech to inspire others to do something about this and make changes to the way we live.

Maths
In Maths we have focussed on written methods for multiplication. We have also focused on mental strategies using known facts e.g.

3x4=12
3x40=120
30x40=1200

6x7= 42
7x6= 42
42÷7=6
42÷6=7

I have set some work on My Maths for any child wanting more practice at this.

PE
This week, we started to incorporate some of the lifts into our cheer leading routine as well as including some gymnastic rolls, cartwheels and jumps. These routines are really starting to take shape.

In high fives our focus this week was shooting. We learned how to hold the ball in a W position and how to bend and flick aiming at the rim of the net. Some of us were successful in shooting and scoring a goal this week. We have continued to become experts in learning the rules of high fives and there are many super star players.

History/Literacy
Our focus has been diary writing. We have looked at what good examples of diaries and identified the features. We then learned all about the raid at Lindisfarne. This was a terrible moment in History when the Vikings raided the Holy Island. We wrote diary entries in the role of Alcuin (an Anglo-Saxon farmer) who lived close to St Cuthbert’s and saw the event unfold.

Let’s Celebrate
This week’s super stars were Isabelle S and Fintan
Our golden star was Evie
Our achievement award went to Kayla
Our table point winners this week were the Nutella Squad

Class 4 Key information
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays.

Polite Notice

Amazing Trip... How homework should be!

‘Growing Together with God’
Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel

What have we been up to this week?


What an exciting week it has been. We have literally worked our little socks off! A very special mention to Patrick and Isabelle this weekend, as they make their First Holy Communion. May God bless you on your special day. 


It was wonderful to welcome Father Des into our classroom this week. The children were delighted to see him.


This week we completed activities on the school laptops. We learnt how to type, save documents to a shared file at school as well as using online learning sites for Maths and Literacy. We will continue to practice these skills in preparation for any future home learning that takes place 


We took part in Operation Christmas Child on Friday. This made us all realise how lucky we are. We kept all the children receiving the gifts in our prayers during collective worship. We are so grateful to Mrs Ventura and Mrs Poole for giving up their precious time to allow us to make them. 


We really enjoyed episode four of the ‘mark10mission’ and loved learning a brand new song. Collective worship, which happens every Monday morning, is a fabulous way for our class to come together, pray, sing and reflect on how we can change our behaviours to be more like Jesus. 


Mrs Angel also brought us together to take part in Circle-Time where we were able to discuss how we were feeling. 


We had the opportunity to build the roof of a longhouse made by James’ Grandad. It was a fabulous experience. 


We wanted to say a huge thankyou to all children and parents in Class 4, but especially James’ Grandad, as the homework produced has been breath-taking this week. 


Keep up the hard work!


Our sports leaders have helped Miss Jenkinson at break times set up some athletic competitions which have again proved popular. This week we completed the speed bounce challenge. 


Well done Class 4 who won both battles against Class 3 and Class 5 on Times Tables Rock Stars. Let’s do the same this week. Our next battle will commence on Monday.

RE
We have started a new topic all about being ‘called’ this week. We spoke about special moments in our lives when we have been called to undertake important jobs such as monitors in school, becoming bridesmaids/page boys and even being given responsibilities at home. We listened to the stories of Samuel and David who were called by God in the Bible to underrate special roles. We carried out a liturgical dance all about being chosen by God and discussed ways in which we are chosen.

SPaG
Our SPaG focuses this week has been pronouns and relative pronouns. We have identified them and tried to use them instead of repeating names in our writing.

Maths
This week we have been solving problems involving addition and subtraction. We have worked incredibly hard and persevered with this as some of us found it very tricky to start with. We have started to look at multiplying using a written method. We will be continuing with this on Monday. I have asked children who do not know how to tell the time to ask a parent to help them with this over the weekend. I have set some optional home work on My Maths to help with this. 


PE
This week we learned the rules of high fives. We were encouraged to think about using all the skills we’ve learned so far and applying them into game situations. We also carried out our first cheerleading session which proved popular with everyone in class. We will continue these routines and eventually add them to our class blog when they are ready.

History
This week we completed a performance poem about Rosa Parks. It was very powerful and we really enjoyed learning all about her.

Let’s Celebrate
This week’s super stars were Olivia and James.
Our golden star was Miley Burns.
Our achievement award went to Isabelle Jenkinson.
Our table point winners this week were the roblox squad.

Class 4 Key Information
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure you come to school in the correct PE kit and suitable outdoor trainers. Earrings must be taken out (independently) and hair should be tied up.

Polite Notice
Please ensure you child brings their book bag, reading record and homework books each Monday so that they can be given their new spellings. 


Well done to everyone completing 4 times per week reading and those using spelling frame to learn their spellings. It is so lovely to see so many children scoring full or almost full marks on tests. 


Many children are still working on how to tell the time in Class 4. 


Please ensure you work with your child on this at home. I have sent some clock faces home to practice as well as setting some homework to complete on My Maths. 


Class email
Please contact Class4@stegrardsprimary.org with your preferred email if you have not already done so. 


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

‘Growing Together with God’
Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel

Another exciting, jam-packed week of learning! It has certainly been a week full of achievements, learning and laughter. We managed to have our first assembly with Mrs Baxter on Friday and we were all so excited!

Our sports leaders- Oliver and Kayla- really played a special part in making some of our playtimes really special by introducing the first competition to key stage 2 (standing long jump). It was great to see everyone getting involved and improving the distance they could jump. The children even managed to convince Mr Watts and Mr Drury to have a go!

Our worship leaders also deserve a special mention. They lead us so beautifully in prayer- well done Sullivan and Eleanor! We have loved watching ‘themark10mission’ during collective worship as a class. This is a fabulous resource which we are thoroughly enjoying. Check it out using the link below. https://www.themark10mission.co.uk


We now have access to My Maths which is a fantastic online maths programme that allows children to complete online lessons, homework and gives instant feedback to class teachers. I have given out login details and passwords. I will also ensure these are stuck into homework books on Monday. Please if you get chance over the weekend check this site out. I will set a homework task (optional) for you to have a go at.

Our homework celebration corner is coming along really nicely. It is so wonderful to celebrate all the effort that has been put in by children in their own time. It is great to see children using Spelling Frame too!

All in all- a wonderful week of learning!

What have we been up to this week?


Black History Month
This Thursday marked the start of Black History Month. We have worked really hard this Friday on performance poetry. It will take us a while to complete but throughout the month of October we will be using our garden area to finish our final performances. We will be entering a Blue Peter competition with our final piece and will also share this on this page when it is finished so keep your eyes peeled! 


Find out more by visiting the following link


https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/joinin/bp-help-us-celebrate-black-history-month

Literacy
We have blown Miss Jenkinson away this week in creating the most incredible newspaper reports. We based our reports on the ‘Guardian’s Three Little Pig’ video. We are really trying hard when editing and improving our writing- even if Miss Jenkinson does say (20 times at least), “Proper nouns need capital letters.” - Video link on the right.

SPaG
Our SPaG focuses this week have been identifying and using adjectives and adverbs. We have also learned about direct and indirect speech and the punctuation and vocabulary associated with this. Some of us even managed to remember this new skill in our newspaper reports.

Maths
We are really working hard each morning improving our arithmetic scores. Arriving on time really allows us to warm our brains up ready for our maths lessons. This week’s focuses in maths have been mental strategy as well as formal written methods for addition and subtraction. We have used part whole models, place value charts and bar models in order to help us understand these methods. I was so pleased to see such fabulous progress throughout the week with everyone in class. 


PE
This week we completed our war dance and moved to traditional Viking dance. We have really enjoyed learning some of the basic footwork. In outdoor PE, we have focused on the rules of mat ball and high fives. Some of us began to practice our shooting skills.

 
History/Geography
This week we learned how to use a key to label a map showing where the Vikings invaded and settled. We also learned all about the raid at Lindisfarne by watching videos and reading information. We are looking forward to completing some writing about this.

Class 4 Key information
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure you come to school in the correct PE kit and suitable outdoor trainers. Earrings must be taken out (independently) and hair should be tied up.


Reading
We were thrilled to find more challenge books this week. Children have had these handed out and our book review wallet is bursting. It is so wonderful to see so many of you at home making a special effort to read. I am sure plenty of children will be receiving the hot chocolate reward at the end of this term.

‘Growing Together with God’


Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel


Well what a delightful week Class 4! It has been wonderful to see our classroom coming to life with all your amazing work going up in class and around school.


Our sports leaders and school counsellors have been awarded their special badges and held their first meetings. I am sure they will do us proud throughout the year! 


Thank you for encouraging your children to bring in their homework and learn their spellings. I have been blown away with some of the superb efforts including: amazing writing, Viking artwork, Viking pancakes, Viking cupcakes, Viking cake, Viking timeline, fact files and Viking board games. Remember there are still a few weeks to get in your three pieces of homework.


Keep working hard on your spellings- I was so impressed this week after so many children really worked hard on Spelling Frame at home. Coimhe was top of the class and deserves a special mention as we all agreed it would be pretty tough to knock her off top spot. 


We are signed up for two battles against Class 3 and 5 on Times Tables Rock stars this week. Don’t forget to log in and get Class 4 to the top!

What have we been up to this week?

Literacy
This week we have put up our non-chronological reports on display in our classroom. I think you’ll agree that they look pretty awesome and this was down to the sheer hard work and concentration we took in illustrating and writing them up into best.
We have also read the book- ‘Here We Are’. Inspired by this book, we created our own mood poems based on how we were feeling. We also created some awesome colour blending using pastels and copied these poems up into best using tracing paper. We are really proud of our work which is displayed in the hall.

SPaG
We have drastically improved our scores this week in our spelling tests. Miss Jenkinson and Mrs Jenkinson were bursting with pride after such an improvement. Well done everyone.
We have been learning about nouns, verbs and modal verbs in our grammar lessons.

Maths
This week we have been learning to solve problems involving rounding, to count backwards through zero, to read roman numerals up to 1000 and to use an understanding of place value to add and subtract large numbers mentally. We have taken some pictures of our learning to share with you.

RE
This week we learned all about the story of Ruth and Naomi. We created a code for living all about how Ruth’s care and love shown towards her mother in law as well as their faith in God can inspire us. We created some beautiful pieces of RE in our books.

PE
In preparation for learning all about the Raid on Lindisfarne, this week we created a class Viking war dance. We will be finishing this dance next week. Some of us were reluctant dancers to start with but really got into the spirit of it when we got started.

We have also continued learning about the skills of high fives. This week we focussed on game play and spacing as well as continuing to practice our footwork and passing skills.

Science
In Science we have been learning about grouping animals according to whether they are fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds or mammals. 

Let’s Celebrate
Stars of the week this week were Shauna and Sully. Shauna your kind and gentle nature coupled with your determination to always do you best has been very impressive. You truly deserve the award! Sully you have had a phenomenal week of learning this week. I have been so impressed with your work ethic and your determination to improve and impress. Well done!


Well done to the ‘Wave Surfers’ who were this week’s winners of the table points. You really have had a great week of learning and have ensured your table has been kept neat and tidy. 


Class 4 Key information
Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure you come to school in the correct PE kit and suitable outdoor trainers. Earrings must be taken out (independently) and hair should be tied up.


Reading
Please make an extra special effort to sign your child’s reading record (even if they are reading independently). Reading together regularly really does enable your child to flourish in school.
We are still missing a large number of reading challenge books.

Please could you have one more look at home?

Miss Jenkinson, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Angel


What a superb second week of learning! We really are producing some high quality work as well as getting our heads down and working hard. I really am so proud of Class 4 this week for having such a positive attitude towards their learning. It really is paying off!

Literacy
This week we have completed our non-chronological reports all about the Vikings which will be displayed in our classroom.

Each week we will share pictures of some of our fabulous work that we have carried out and share what we have been learning so keep your eyes peeled. Our first topic is the Vikings and we’ve had a great start in writing non-chronological reports and learning all about them.  


What else have we been up to?

Check out other pictures of some of our amazing work below…


Let’s Celebrate


Each week one child will be chosen to be our superstar of the week for being an ‘always’ child. Well done to Patrick and Laura who have had an exceptional start- for ALWAYS listening, ALWAYS giving 100% and for ALWAYS being kind.
