Gregory Class

Welcome to Gregory Class!  The children in this class are in Year 4.  Our adults are Miss Trott and Mrs Caiger.  On this page you will find everything you need to know about our class and what we get up to at St Martin's.


Our Class Blog

18th October - P.E. kit. Please can people make sure that children have suitable footwear in their P.E. kits for going outside. I have had a number of children that have not had any spare footwear or unsuitable footwear in their P.E. kits and therefore have not been able to take part. Particularly for Monday next week please can all children make sure that they have trainers in their PE kits as they will be competing in an interhouse rugby tournament on the field. 

3rd December - Please scroll down to find a book list recommended for Year 4 children. This list includes a range of different things including poetry, fiction and some non-fiction books. There are many more titles than these that would be suitable for this year group but hopefully this will get you started. 

20th December - Thanks to all the parents and children on Gregory class. We have had a very productive term. Have a nice break and come back ready to learn in January. Our new topic is called "Crash, Bang, Wallop!". More information to be revealed after the holidays. 

24th January - Please can children make sure they are bringing in library books on Tuesdays as this is our day to use the library. I know that serveral children do not bring them in on the correct day and miss out on the opportunity to be able to change their books. 

20th April - Welcome back after Easter. I know times are strange at the moment and we can't physically welcome children into a new term, but there are lots of resources to keep you busy on the Google classroom. Look out for new things being posted every week both on here and the classroom. 

Curriculum documents

Below are the overviews of the topics that we have covered/ are covering at the moment. When we start a new topic a new document will be added. These show how our topic is linked to the national curriculum and what activities are planned in each subject. 

Spelling lists

Each week the children are given 10 new spellings to learn. They are given these on a Friday. Spelling test is the following Thursday. Below are the termly overviews of the words that the majority of the class are learning at the moment. The weeks refer to which week in the term we have got to. 

Purple Mash

All of the children have been given logins for Purple Mash and all parents should have recieved letters about what Purple Mash is used for. Some extra homework/ activities are added to Purple Mash regularly based on what the children have been learning about. We have been using Purple Mash during lessons and so children can also log on at home to show their families what they have been doing in their lessons. 

Amazing Bodies Day

As an opener to our topic, Amazing Bodies, we had a day full of science experiments all about things that affect the human body. All of the experiments that we carried out used ingredients that could be found at home. As part of the day, we also had a visit from Prime VR who toook us on a virtual reality tour of the human body and the digestive system. See below for our slide show of the day. 

Pictures from Term 1

We have been up to a range of different activities across the whole of term 1 in a range of subjects. Here is a collection of photos from different events that have been taken of us hard at work. 

Trip to Ufton Court

At the beginning of November this year we visited Ufton Court to learn all about Anglo-Saxons and how they lived. We took part in a range of activities learning about life as an Anglo-Saxon.

Book list

Here is a list of book recommended for children in Year 4. There are many more than this, but this should give a good starting point for those struggling to find a new book to read. 

STEm Workshop at UTC Reading

In January, we visited UTC Reading and took part in a workshop all about engineering. We got to find out about what engineers do and the types of projects that they worked on. we then took part in some problem solving activities, working together in small groups. Here are some photos of us on our trip. 

Trip to the Natural History Museum, London

In February we visited the Natural History Museum in London to look at Moutains, Volcanoes and Earthquakes as a conclusion from our topic. Have a look at some of the things we saw and did.
