Welcome to Curie Class!

Welcome to Curie (KerrRae the children like to say!) Class! Your child is lucky enough to be one of only 25 children in a mixed Year 4 and 5 class. Helping and inspiring your child on their learning journey are Mrs Rae (Monday and Tuesday am), Miss Kerr (Monday pm, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday), Miss Kearvell (every day!) and Mrs Williams (mornings only). 

It has been a pleasure to welcome your child to Curie Class; they have come back after the summer break, ready and eager to learn.  We are very much looking forward to spending the rest of the year with them.

To help you to support your child, we feel it is important that you understand our routine; every morning, we dedicate our time to Spelling, Maths and Literacy, and our afternoon timetable is currently as follows:

Monday - (Week 1)Music (improvise and compose) and Spanish (describing appearance/personality) 

(Week 2) Art(illustration)/DT(construction) and Computing (e-safety and effective use of search engines)

Tuesday - PE (Tudor dance) and RE (Islam/Muhammad)

Wednesday - Science (Forces and Magnets) or Topic

Thursday - Science or Topic

Friday - PE (rugby) and PSHCE (relationships, friendship and bullying)

On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, Year 4 will be taught on their own and Year 5 will be taught together alongside Year 6.

We already have some exciting plans for the upcoming months, including an excursion to Hampton Court (9th November) and Young Voices (January 2018); both of these trips promise to be exciting and will leave your child with lifelong memories.

If you have any questions and need to talk to us at any point, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes from the Curie Class Team

Investigating the properties of materials...

This week, we created a new character in literacy, so meet Missy Kay - an intrepid explorer who travels the rainforest with her trusty zebra, Julian. Missy Kay is partial to the odd survival snack, but unfortunately these often become squashed and inedible as she explores. We realised this was due to the inadequate packaging, and set about finding an alternative. We investigated the properties of different materials and decided the snacks needed to be wrapped in something waterproof, strong, hard, lightweight and insoluble! The children worked in groups to decide which materials to use, and how to test them. The upshot of this was survival snacks wrapped in unusual packaging, put into school bags and bounced about on the trim trail and the rec - enjoy the pics!

Y5 Enrichment Day at Burford

The children had a lot of fun, especially meeting the animals! Well done Harriet for winning your group prize, and well done everyone for behaving so well and joining in. 

Swimming Gala

We had a good turnout for the annual swimming gala - despite it being on an Inset Day! 

The children that came performed brilliantly - with some having to swim up a year group, and others being asked to swim even though they'd only come to watch!!  We managed to fill all races and had many children placed in the top 3.

Thanks to all the children that came along - and to all of the parents that came to support.

Rainforest Day

On Thursday, Tutu and Curie class joined forces to carry out three different rainforest-based activities: they were sent on a (Portuguese!) scavenger hunt, painted huge leaves and made little critters out of various fruits and vegetables. 

We loved the children's enthusiasm and they worked hard, while having fun, on their activities. I think all also found a new-found love for Biscoff!

Thank you very much to Sebastian’s mum, Anna, for coming in and helping us out. 

Chairman's Cup tag rugby

Superb sportsmanship and effort from our tag rugby team at the Chairman's Cup. Well done everyone.
