Gorefield Primary Academy

Caring, sharing, thinking, learning


Welcome to Zimbabwe Class.  Mangwanani - Good Morning.


P.E. will be on Mondays and Thursdays - please remember to send in kit.


The adults in our class are: Miss Boor, Mrs Bramley and Miss Wakeham.

Our spring term begins with spending a few days considering the importance of recycling, the impact of rubbish on our world and how we can reduce this.


In English, our first unit is based on the text 'Light - Let's Investigate' by Science Essentials.  We will learn how to write a non-chronological report about light.  Following this, we will be writing a historical narrative based on the story of 'Arthur and the Golden rope' by Joe Todd-Stanton.


We will continue to build opportunities for children to read independently and will read from the class book every day. We strongly believe that exposing our children to stories and other texts improves their writing, their understanding of the world and their love of reading.  Please try to support your child's learning by reading with them, or to them, every day.


Maths lessons continue with multiplication and division for both year groups.  Children will be practising times tables regularly at school and your support with this at home will really boost your child's progress.  Every child has a login for TTRS; other useful websites are Multiplication Tables Checker and Hit The Button.  Y4 children will be participating in the statutory times table check at the beginning of June.
