Mr Martin's Class


Welcome to Class 2AM's page. We are a lovely group of Year 4 children who love to learn new things! Our class teacher is Mr Martin. Mr Wilkinson, Mrs Green and Mrs Dixon help us with our learning in Maths and English each morning. We are also really lucky to have Music lessons with Miss Csiba and Spanish lessons with Mrs Lauder.


General Information:


We are able to change our reading book whenever we have finished reading it. We note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part in our reading diaries. Mr Martin will collect our reading diaries on a Monday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed at least 3 times a week. It is important to bring our book bags to school everyday for letters and other important information.



We are given Maths homework from our individual Maths set teachers every Tuesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Mr Martin will also send our English homework out on a Thursday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.



Spellings for each week are in the children's planners. Each week the children should practise at home 4 times, there is space for this in the planner. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) please indicate how many times they have done this and ensure that you sign the spelling page in the planner.



Please have PE kits in school throughout the week. It is also very important that all belongings are clearly named. If children are wearing earrings, ensure that they are able to remove them for PE or provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. Long hair should be tied up for PE.


Staying healthy:

It is important to bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, children can bring a healthy snack for break time. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.

Learning in Term 1 - The Romans

We will be linking our learning this term with the Romans. In History, we will be researching this period of time and way of life. This knowledge will support the work we complete in English sessions. In DT, we will be developing our food technology skills to create a 'Rocky Roman Road' fridge cake that is linked to our topic.
