HAWKS - Years 4 & 5

 smiley Welcome to the Hawks Class Page! smiley





We would like to wish you all a lovely half term break!


We look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 4th of June, ready to start our final half term of this school year.



Our topic this term is Sailing The Severn!





This term the children will be learning about the River Severn. The children will be studying the river to learn about its features and discover the path it follows through Wales and England. Later in the term the children will be visiting the Severn Valley Country Park to study part of the River Severn, before travelling to Ironbridge to visit the Ironbridge Gorge Museum.  




At the bottom of the page you can find lots of websites for your information. e.g relating to English, Maths and The River Severn.



Online SPAG and Reading Theory practice


The children have been given a password to be able to access the online SPAG and Reading Theory practice at home- these are either stapled at the front of their Homelink Books or handwritten in. Please could the children practice these at home. The tests are short and will only take a few minutes to complete.


Thank you

Useful Websites


Below is a list of websites that may be useful when practicing times tables and place value.


When practicing times tables, as well as the websites above, you could play games, sing songs, make up rhymes, or use flash cards. Remember that children should be able to recall facts out of order without working up from 1 x something.


We are currently learning about place value and number sequencing in class. Below is a link to the place value and number sequencing games that the children have been playing in class - it may be useful to play these games at home to increase your child's confidence with value and support their learning in class. 


There key to learning times tables is regular practice in short bursts. For example on the way home or when going up to bed.
