Welcome to Penguins Class


Mrs Down                             Mrs Marshall

Year 4/5 Penguins class is taught by Mrs Down on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Marshall teaches on Thursday and Friday.  Mrs Evans and Ms Robertson support the children in Penguins class with their learning. 



PE will be on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. This will take place outside as often as possible so the children will benefit from having navy track suit trousers in their PE kit.  We have a timetabled library session each week where the children are encouraged to choose a book to borrow and bring home to share with you.


World War 2


This term we will be learning about World War 2 from a child's perspective. We will be learning about how the war started, and which countries were involved. We will investigate what adults and children did at home to keep themselves safe and support the war effort. We will research the Dunkirk rescue, the Battle of Britain and the D-day landings. If you have any artifacts or stories to share please talk to us in school, as first hand experiences bring this facinating topic alive for the children. 






At some point each half term the children should complete at least three activities from the homework grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing. Homework will be discussed on Fridays, but the final date for completion is Friday 18th October.


Please find link to the homework grid below:


We will also send weekly spellings home every Thursday which will be tested on the following Thursday morning. Don't forget to also logon to Mathletics each week.


Year 4/5 Homework

Simple ways to make spelling fun

Times Tables

The children need daily practice of their times tables as they are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.

For the first time this year, the government have introduced a statutory times tables test for Year 4 children which will take place in the Summer term.
