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

Paired Reading

Book week got off to a great start with some lovely paired reading during snack and story time.  It was the perfect opportunity for older children to get together with younger ones, relax and share a book.  All of the children seemed to love it, and are looking forward to moving around the other classes during the week.

We the Curious

What a fantastic day we had in Bristol at We the Curious! We zoomed off into space in the planetarium, created our own stop motion animations, made giant bubbles, tested parachutes, explored virtual reality and made music - all topped off with a trip to the gift shop of course! We would like to say a big thank you to all of the children for their enthusiasm, excitement and delightful behaviour. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Y5 Indoor Athletics

Another great partnership sporting event at Burford School. Well done to all our amazing Year 5s.

Christingles

Thank you to Mrs Bostock and St John's Church: all of our Year 4, 5 and 6 children made a Christingle in RE the first week after the Christmas holidays. They were able to learn all about this tradition. 

Young Voices 2018

A concert of over 6000 children, including us. Amazing atmosphere!
