Russet - Year 4

Welcome to Russet


Please check here for information and updates on what is happening in Russet Class this term.










Welcome to Russet Class! This year you have me (Mrs Parker) for your teacher as well as lots of wonderful teaching assistants to support you. There is Miss Surrey (class TA), also Miss Keeler, Miss Wickham, Miss West, Mrs Cameron, Mrs Sutton and Miss Reed who will be supporting individual children, so we are a very lucky class! 


Just a reminder that at the moment reading books are not going home but the children will be listened to at least three times a week by an adult. Also PE is on a  Monday so please ensure that the children come into school in their sports clothes prepared for outdoor activites. They will need to wear tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt, jumper and trainers (not plimsoles). Forest school is on Fridays and the children need to come to school in their forest school clothing. Letters have gone home explaing which group your child is in. Please can you also ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school which needs to come home every night to be washed and returned the next day. Finally, the chidlren are able to bring a snack in for break.


We hope the children enjoy being back at school and that you are looking forward to seeing what were are doing on our class page.

Russet Class Adults

Term 5

This term the children have been learning about 'Living Things and their Habitats'. Our reading focus has been the story 'The Sheep-pig' and our class story has been 'Charlotte's Web,' so it has been a very animal based term! We have mainly focused on bees and their habitat. The children' have worked extremely hard learning new skills and knowledge as well as producing some fantastic work.

Classifying Animals

Term 4

We welcomed all of the children back this term, here is a glimpse of what we have been doing.

Some of the children have had great fun using chalk to draw us during their lunch break.

This is a more modern take on Easter, but it does symbolise new life. Again, with little direction from the adults the children produced these beautiful animals and plants.

After learning about the Easter Story we created this wonderful garden. It was with very little help from the adults. We are VERY proud of the children in Russet.

Our beautiful Easter cards and Easter garden drawings.
