Farewell Class 4! Reports are out this week...
I just had to share with you all some of the work that I've received:
I'm so pleased with you both!
POINT OF CONTACT FOR HOME LEARNING email@example.com
Dear Class 4,
I am feeling very sad as I start my last week at Simonstone St. Peter's. From the moment I arrived, back in November 2019 you all made me feel incredibly welcome and I have had a wonderful time. I can honestly say that you have been the best-behaved, kindest, thoughtful and most loving children; each one of you is so special and I will miss you all. Year 6 will all be moving on to their respective High Schools, which leaves the Year 5's ready to move up into Year 6. It will be a busy year but I hope that you continue to make many happy memories in your final year.
This is the last week that I will be able to see your work, so please do send me some of your favourite pieces that you have completed during Lockdown.
Wishing you all the best over the summer months and for the future.
Love Mrs. Turner X
Also have a look at these as additional inspiration: Henri Matisse an introduction

Notes from previous weeks:
Clitheroe Grammar school have details about the 11+ examination for current Year 5 pupils on their website; this is scheduled to take place on Saturday 26th September. There is also a telephone number for parents to ring with any queries regarding admissions.
Remember about the times tables...you need rapid recall of all the tables up to 12 x 12 before you get into Year 6.
Important reminder on Times Tables
For those that aren’t aware of expectations, here are the national curriculum aims for each year group surrounding times tables.
- Year 1: count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10.
- Year 2: be able to remember and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
- Year 3: be able to remember and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
- Year 4: be able to remember and use multiplication and division facts for the multiplication tables up to 12 x 12.

MEET THE TEAM
Welcome to class 4! We are a class of 36 talented children - taught in a mixed age group of yr 5 and 6. We are taught by Mrs Cockings and are supported by Mrs L Smith and Mrs Webster. In class 4 we always put 100% effort into our work and celebrate each other's achievements. We set high expectations and enjoy learning in a creative environment. When possible, we visit local museums and organise outdoor learning opportunities to enhance our learning. Our topics help us learn new skills and to develop our knowledge of the real world. Throughout the year we enter sporting competitions, take part in the worship committees, learn through doing and making, prepare ourselves for High School and most importantly foster a love of learning!
