Lewis (Year 4)

Welcome to Lewis Class

Teacher: Ms Judd

Teaching assistants: Mrs Bain and Mr Nash

Term 6 

This term in English, Lewis Class will be using 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes, as a stimulus for our own science fiction narrative. During this module of writing, we will focus on including subordinating clauses both at the beginning and end of sentences, developing our character and setting descriptions and, of course, continue to practise the grammatical devices that we have learnt throughout the year. Later in the term, we will practise our persuasive writing skills, researching and learning about the stunning island of Sicily in order to produce a holiday brochure. 

This term is our final art module, Festival Feasts. Children will explore how food connects us as families, cultures and communities; considering and comparing the work of Claes Oldenburg, Lucia Hierro and Nicole Dyer, amongst others. Using these artists as inspiration, we will then create our own collaborative festival feast from the medium of clay. 

In design and technology we have two fantastic projects to complete. First, we will research, design and make a prototype for a sustainable lunch box, incorporating our knowledge of net shapes.  Finally, we will evaluate our product against the design brief to ensure its suitability for both the user and purpose, making revisions were necessary. Next, we will learn about healthy food  alternatives and consider these when designing and making a pizza using fresh, nutritious ingredients. We will even be making our own dough!

For further information on curriculum coverage for Term 6, please see the attached Curriculum Map below. 


P.E will be on Monday, Thursday and Friday. We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with two different coaches this term in both Tag Rugby, which will be a short session on a Thursday afternoon, and for football, which will take place on Friday afternoon. On Monday, Lewis Class will take part in OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activities), which involves working collaboratively in pairs or small groups to complete fun activities. OAA supports the development of a number of key skills, including: communication, team work and problem-solving.

Please make sure you come to school in the correct P.E uniform. 

You will need to wear:

  • Plain black / navy shorts, plain white t-shirt or white t-shirt with school logo
  • Daps for indoor PE
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Plain black / navy joggers and a plain black / navy sweatshirt or ‘hoodie’ may be worn for cold weather outdoor PE in the winter.
  • A blue school fleece with logo is also available
  • Please remember to pack socks for those who wear tights with their normal school clothes.

  Please do not wear different colours or clothes with other logos. 

Home Learning

Home learning will be set on Google Classroom on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. 

It is important to encourage your child to complete home learning as it consolidates learning that is currently taking place in class. Home learning is designed to be an independent activity and children should be able to complete one activity from both English and maths (from three options of each), with minimal adult input or supervision. Getting into the routine of completing a small amount of home learning each week will support your child as they progress through their learning journey and into secondary education. Ideally, alongside home learning, children should also read at home. Little and often is the best approach to take; this may only be 5 minutes a day.

If you have concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to speak to myself, Mrs Bain or Mr Nash.
