Welcome to Adur Class
In Adur Class we have a mixture of year 4 and year 5 children. We believe in having fun while learning and enjoying our time at school. We like to work together, to achieve with each other, and care for each other along the way.
Through exploring our web page, you can keep up-to-date with our learning journey, check out our wonderful curriculum and explore subject specific websites to support your children’s learning.
At Slinfold CE Primary School, each class works together to develop a class charter which is based around our behaviour code of , , . Our charters support our learning, and our pupils are consistently encouraged to make wise behaviour choices based on those charters.
In Adur Class, we work collaboratively to collect marbles for our class jar. When we reach our class target we get to enjoy a special treat together.
Adur Class has PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. To minimize changing at school, the children will change at school on a Monday and will then return home in their PE kits. Please send your child into school on Tuesdays in their PE kit, with their school uniform in a bag.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due back the following Thursday.
Your child will bring home 1 activity each week to complete. This will rotate between a Maths based task one week, followed by an English task the following week. This task should take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete and will always be a consolidation task based on what we have been learning in school.
Spelling - Your child will bring home 5 spelling each week. The purpose of learning these spellings is to put them in the long term memory so your child can recall them when required.
Reading - Your child should bring home their reading record and a book every day. Please encourage your child to read for 15 to 20 minutes each evening to develop their fluency, expression, confidence and an understanding of books. Please encourage your child to record this reading in their reading record. Reading records are collected in every Friday to monitor your child’s reading journey at home.
Lodge Hill was a brilliant success and the weather was beautiful. The children took part in Rock Climbing, Rifle Shooting, Tunnelling and The Gladiator Challenge which required lots of courage. The children behaved impeccably and displayed all of our school values showing courage when completing activities, compassion towards each other, respect to all adults and children and displayed huge responsibility across the 2 days. It was great to see so many children push themselves outside of their comfort zone to conquer their fears! Well done Year 4!
This week, Adur class have been working hard on their DT projects, building a model of a river. They thought about the purpose and audience for their models and chose the features of a river which they could show. They began by using paper mache to construct their landscape, including hills or mountains to contain the source of their river. Once this had dried, they painted their model to show all the features we have learnt about this term.
All remote learning can now be found on Google Classroom. Your child should know their log in details and these can also be found in the back of your child's Reading Record. Your child has been taught how to use Google Classroom during ICT lessons, so although initially this may look daunting for you, your child should be confident using this system.
