Welcome to Tawny Owls class page. Here parents will be able to see an overview of the learning that is planned for the first part of the summer term. We start our term focusing on our text called, 'The Journey' by Francesca Sanna. As we explore the book, there will be lots of writing opportunities, including a refugee narrative and an opportunity to write our own diaries. Throughout the unit of work, there will be a focus on spelling and grammar expectations linked to the year 4 expectations in the national curriculum. 

During our shared reading sessions, we will be continuing with our teaching sequence from Literacy Counts called, 'Steps to read,' which has been specifically developed to ensure that the children are immersed in a variety of texts and genres. This term the children will be immersed in a plethora of texts, poems and digital resources with an emphasis on Europe, focusing on how the structure impacts the reader and how organisational features are used to aid the reader. 

In History, we will be continuing our chronological sequence of learning and following on from our Bronze Age to Iron Age period, learning about the Roman invasion of Britain. We will be learning to answer the question, 'What happened when the Romans came to Britain?'. Our learning on this topic will lead to high quality outcomes for our curriculum books. In our art lessons, we will be using painting and mixed media techniques to create refugeee inspired art work linked to our English text. 

Spelling and Maths homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. These pieces of work will be set up either electronically on the spelling shed and TTrockstars platforms or via teams. Please ensure that you have the username and password details for your child to access teams and submit their work on the platform. Please work with your child to ensure that their homework is completed on time.

Our PE lessons will take place on a  Wednesday afternoon and Friday afternoon, a change from the previous terms PE days. One of the sessions will take place indoor and the other outdoor and they will be taught by Mr Hutchinson on a Wednesday and Mrs Austin on  a Friday. As the weather begins to change, it is advisable that children bring in tracksuit pants and a top to stay warm. Please ensure that your children have their PE kits with them in school at all times so that they can participate in all of their PE lessons.

At Cuddington, reading is seen as a fundamental skill that activates children's imaginations, makes them curious about the world they live in, develops their language and listening skills and has a positive impact on their social and emotional wellbeing. There is growing research evidence that shows there is a positive relationship between reading frequency, reading enjoyment and attainment (Clark 2011; Clark and Douglas 2011 and Twist et al 2007). As a result of this, we understand the importance of regularly reading with your child and we advise that you read 10-15 minutes per day with them. Whilst listening to your child, try to ask them questions about events that have happened so far, characters thoughts and motives and to make accurate predictions based on the text. 

At the start of the new term, children will be allocated their own reading books and library books that they will be allowed to take home with them.  If you require any new reading books, then you can ask your child's teacher who can allocate new books for them to read.

To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter and Facebook feeds as well as our class blog.
