Welcome to Diamond Class!
Class Teacher: Mr Ricketts
A Message From Mr Ricketts
At St Mary Cray Primary Academy we base our Literacy planning on the Power of Reading and use the phonics scheme Read Write Inc to embed early reading and writing skills. We follow the Whiterose Scheme for Numeracy and the Kent scheme in Science.
Children will develop the knowledge and skills through a range of foundation subjects such as History, Geography, Music, Modern Foreign languages (Spanish), Art and Computing.
Outdoor Learning forms and integral part of our pupils' learning at St Mary Cray Primary Academy. Children have access to a trim trail, large grassy field, allotment and, via our partner school, swimming lessons. In Year 4, the children will also have the opportunity to take part in Forest school sessions.
This year we will be very busy in Year 4. Mrs Boyd and I will strive to offer an inspiring curriculum and will devote our time to giving your children a fun, broad and engaging learning experience that will be seen both indoors and out.
We very much look forward to working with your children this term. In Year 4, your child will have access to more challenging texts, including Varjak Paw and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. We will also be looking at lots of interesting topic subjects, starting with Rivers in Geography and Sound in Science. We cannot wait to share in the successes of your children with you. The door is always open, so do not hesitate to reach out to us for anything.
Thank you for your continued support!
Mr Ricketts and Mrs Boyd
