-Upper School 4 2017 - 2018

Miss Brown


My name is Miss Brown- and this is Upper 4's class page! Keep an eye out regularly for updates on what we have been doing in school and important information :)

Please read below for important information for this year and to see what we've been up to so far. Don't forget to look at our gallery page and blogs as well.

Homework is handed out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday (unless told otherwise). Homework will come in three parts: reading, maths and spellings. If your child is ever stuck on a homework then please encourage your child to come and speak to me. If your child could try their homework for about half an hour, and if they are still stuck then don't hesitate to come to me for help!

Creative Curriculum
Our Creative Curriculum topic this term is Ancient Greece. Throughout this topic the children will be learning about the lasting influence of the Ancient Greeks on the western world. They will be researching the four main periods of the Greek Empire, and examining the exciting Olympics and its modern legacy. The lessons will be involving a mix of history, geography, art and drama, and children will have the chance to learn about significant events that occurred and had an impact on our lives today. 

We offer two hours Physical Education each week with one session indoors and one session outdoors. Children will need tracksuits for outdoor sessions and a Plantation PE kit for indoor sessions. PE is not a voluntary subject and all students must take part unless they have a medical note. We have outdoor PE on a Monday and indoor PE on a Tuesday. Please be aware that outdoor PE will be taking place in cold weather, so please send a tracksuit into school with your child so they can participate in these lessons.

Walking Home
When children reach Year 5 they are allowed to walk home alone if parents provide written consent to their class teacher, however the decision as to whether children walk home lies completely with the parent/carer. Factors such as distance from home, maturity of the child and number of roads to cross must be taken into consideration before allowing your child to walk home from school. Their safety is paramount. Written permission must be provided in order for your child to leave school alone - this will help when someone other than the class teacher is dismissing the children at the end of the day.

Also, please inform the school if someone different will be picking your child up (such as a grandparent, other family members or if your child is going home with another parent).

The timetable for break times in Upper School is slightly different from what the children are used to in Lower School. Children now have break at 11.00am and lunch at 12.40pm – this is about one hour later than in previous years. Children must bring a healthy snack into school for them to have at breaktime. The time from them having their breakfast to having their lunch is simply too long for children to go without having some food and drink. Please be aware that snacks must not contain nuts, we do have children with severe airborne nut allergies.

Please send a water bottle into school with your child, as they have regular opportunities to drink during the day and this will, in turn, aid their concentration!

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Miss Brown
