Jays Class Year 4 and 5

Teacher: Mr Bowkett


The Land of Hope and Glory

Dear Parents and Carers,


This term, our topic is all about the Land of Hope and Glory! This will link to our topic of the UK. We will discover the different areas of the UK and the physical features it has.


How you can help at home:

  • My Maths: This will be set each Monday. Children will have their logins in their reading record if you have any difficulty, do not hesitate to ask. The homework will link to what we are currently covering in class as well as recapping what we have already learnt.


  • Reading: The expectation is that children will read a minimum of four times a week and these will be checked on Monday. The expectation is that children will read aloud to an adult at home in order to practice their fluency of reading. This will then be recorded into their reading record and signed by an adult.


  • Spelling: This term, we will be using ‘Spelling Shed’ which is a scheme designed for children to practise their weekly spellings online via the use of the web link Each week your child will learn a new spelling pattern and will receive spellings to practise online via the Spelling Shed programme. Children will have access to Spelling Shed during school time; we are also asking that children log-in at home at least once per week to practise their spellings.



Spelling Shed - What do you need to know to get started?

· Your child will be given a unique username and password to access the site. They have already been shown what to do and how to access the activities online.

· When your child logs on, they will see their weekly spelling list plus ‘Common Exception Words’ which are there for extra play. The Common Exception Words (statutory curriculum word lists), will be available on Spelling Shed throughout the year. Please encourage play using these words as much as possible.

· Children will be tested every Monday and new spellings will be added to their Spelling Shed.

Maths passport:

Children in Jays have a Maths Passport. These can be accessed from our class page on the website. If you are unsure which passport your child is on then do not hesitate to ask. Children can practice their passports at home by using TTRockstars or any of the multiplication and division Maths Frame games.

If you have any further questions please email me at
