Blossom Class - Year 4 & 5

Hello everyone! We hope you have had a brilliant week off! We are very excited about the half-term ahead, which will be full of happiness, health and opportunity.

This year lots of exciting things will be happening for Blossom Class ; you will enjoy new challenges, be given a range of opportunities and have lots of fun. 


In English, this half-term we will be looking at a poetry unit. This will be based on cloud soup which is a book of poems by Kate Wakeling.

We will be continuing using Power Maths this year in our lessons. Year 4 will be looking at length and perimeter before moving on to fractions. Year 5 will conuitnue with decimals and percentages before moving on to area and perimeter.

Times tables are a vital part of education. Children should practise these regularly at home as well as at school.

This half-term we will be looking at the topic of space. This will involve the planets, how we know that the Earth is a sphere, movement of the planets and the moon, day and night and if the moon changes shape.

We expect children to be reading at home most nights for around 10/15 minutes. We want to encourage a love of reading as much as possible so that children can understand the key aspects of reading.

As a whole class we will be reading 'Who let the Gods out'.


Our P.E. lessons this half-term will be on a Thursday afternoon. We will be going swimming. Please see the letter on Dojo regarding what children need to bring.

Forest School...

This half-term Year 4 will be going to the forest on a Friday morning. Please come to school in forest school clothes with PE to get changed into afterwards.


The children will receive spellings for the half-term.  We will complete our spelling activities every Friday.


If you would like to buy a healthy snack it is £1 per week, this can be payable as £7 for the half-term through ParentPay.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me on Class Dojo.
