Class 3/Panther Class


 Welcome to Panther Class. 

 

Panther Class is our wonderful Year 4, 5 and 6 children.

We are taught by Mr Barnes and helped out by Mr Ashworth and Mrs Quigley. On Wednesday afternoon we are taught by French teacher Mrs McElroy.

We have an exciting year ahead and you can keep up to date with all of our exciting events in our Class Blog page.

 

Curriculum

 

Each morning we work in smaller class sizes to teach maths.  The Year 4 children work alongside Year 3 with Mrs Astley in order to follow age appropriate coverage of the curriculum and Years 5 and 6 work with Mr Barnes.

For English we stay together to cover a range of different fiction and non-fiction genres.

In order to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum we have worked hard to design a 3 year rolling programme.  The children have already been taught Cycles A and B and this year we will be working thriough Cycle C.

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Thursday and needs to be returned on a Wednesday.

The children will be given work which will consolidate the lessons we have been taught in class during that week.  Please feel free to come and ask for help during any point of the week if you are finding anything tricky.

Reading homework. We want all children in Panther Class to continue to read regularly at home. For many of the older children this will involve children reading quietly to themselves and then discussing what they have read with an adult. We request that parents please sign their childrens reading record atleast 3-4 times a week to confirm that their child has been reading and to make sure that their book is back in on a Wednesday.

 

 

Learning Heroes

At Catforth Primary School we believe in helping our children become lifelong learners. In order to do this we have developed School Learning Heroes to enable us to celebrate and discuss what makes our children good learners. These are extremely successful and are helping our chlldren to become more independent learners.
