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

Year 5 Music Concert

After spending a whole day rehearsing, some of our lovely Year 5 children returned for the evening performance with our partnership schools. They sang their little hearts out and whacked out some impressive dance moves! 

Well done to all children involved and especially to Owen, Eira and Caitlin for performing 'Uptown Funk' on their clarinets.

Pyjama Day!

If you did the school run today, you may have been mistaken for thinking that some of the children (and staff) had just rolled out of bed!  In fact, this was the Curie Class treat; wearing pyjamas to school as a reward for all of the children learning their 4 x table (plus division facts) and completing their class challenge.  

Homework is an extremely important part of your child's education and it is lovely to have a lit bit of fun - and inspiration - to help them along the way.

'The best day ever!'

After an amazing talk and book signing with Jay Jay Burridge, the children were organised into groups and spent the rest of their day moving around the school to take part in activities led by staff.  The children were absorbed in making dinosaur inspired iMovie trailers, painting, looking at fossils, creating play dough/pasta dinosaurs and uncovering bones.  It was so lovely to hear them talk about their creations,  and explain what they had made, why they had come up with the idea and the name they were going to give it.  The children worked so well together and it was wonderful to hear one Year 6 say, 'This is the best day ever!'

Dinotastic Author Visit

We were so lucky to have local author, Jay Jay Burridge, visit us today to talk about his amazing Supersaurs books.  The children were privileged to spend over an hour with him as he explained how his series of books came about in which humans live alongside dinosaurs.  It was fascinating to discover how he used real life events and pictures to help conjure up images of humans riding dinosaurs or working alongside them.  Gradually his pictures evolved and along came this amazing idea on which his Supersaurs books are based.  It was a story of creativity, overcoming difficulties and perseverance; a truly inspiring talk...you can do anything if you put your mind to it!

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.
