Class 4 is an exciting, fun and hard-working class. This is a great class to be in because we never give up and are always brave, tackling new challenges.
In these exceptional circumstances, we have prepared a pack of resources to support your child’s learning at home. These include a range of resources that will help your child keep up to date with core subjects.
Daily home-learning resources are shared by Classdojo. There are daily learning activities shared to support home learning. Parents and children will be able to post messages, photos and videos and parents can see work and send me messages too. This is a really strong way of keeping our learning up to date and staying connected with our class. If you have any difficulties accessing Classdojo, please contact the school office for further support.
Additional activities, which will deepen your child’s learning include:
- Practise x tables

When people visit our class, they notice how we all work to keep our classroom happy and friendly together. We improve our understanding and skills by working together as a team. We carry out perfect partner work, helping each other to become the best version of ourselves. Working with a talk partner is an excellent way to explain our ideas to others; ask questions and clarify our learning. We value mistakes as they help us learn and unpick problems. We value resilience and fairness
Our class author for the year is Roald Dahl and we are really enjoying finding out about his life through his incredible autobiography, ‘Boy’. We think Mrs Pratchett is awfully revolting (we love her for this!)
In our class, we have some amazing authors, marvellous mathematicians; super scientists and hysterical historians! We are finding all about what life was like in Durham before the Romans arrived and how the Romans changed our lives forever. We are loving finding out more about our past and how it has affected us now.
We work together with Mrs Curry, Mrs Bailey, Mr Hunter and Mr Graham. Together, they help make our learning exciting.
In our class, we learn to play clarinets and you can choose to learn how to play violins or saxophones too.
Our class is making our own contribution to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We have decided how we can reduce our impact on the world and save energy by:
- using 1/3 of our lights every day;
- switching off the whiteboard when it is not needed;
- every Friday between 2 and 3pm, we will save all energy we can during our Power Hour.
We have all individually shared the 17 goals with our families and each of us and our families have also made separate promises about how we will help reduce our impact on the environment.
Altogether we believe Teamwork makes the dream work.
