Benjamin Zephaniah (our class author)
Our class motto
Welcome to Zephaniah Class, home of Year 4 and 5. This year, our class teacher is Mr Booth and working with him is Miss Mannifield; Miss Brooks will be teaching the children on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Here you'll find all the information you need to help your child progress, supporting the learning that goes on in class and also giving you a window into what they are doing through the year.
We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk shows lots of good choices for individual year groups.
We are using 'The Write Stuff' teaching approach from Jane Considine, which provides a scaffold for children to base their own writing. We make use of the 'writing rainbow' in order to plan and draft our writing.
As a school, we follow the White Rose Maths schemes of learning; please find the overview for the year here, it will help you support your child in knowing what concepts are taught throughout the year.
Another useful website is The School Run, as it contains information on what we teach and how we teach it: https://www.theschoolrun.com/fractions-learning-journey
Here you'll find knowledge organisers, designed to help with vocabulary and concepts, related to our topics through the term.
