Welcome to Class 9!
Welcome back after the Christmas break. Last term was a very busy and exciting one for Year 4, we have another exciting term planned for Spring and we are looking forward to telling you all about our new topics.
In RE, we will be reflecting on prayer and how it is important to many of us, as our way of communicating with God.
We are already enjoying taking part in the Votes for Schools project within our PSHE lessons! This has proved an exciting way for the children to find out about one of our key British Value: democratic elections! Each week there is a topic to focus on that is current in the news. The children have chance to discuss it and cast their votes.
In our English lessons we will be working hard to improve our reading, writing and spelling skills. We will be focusing on Non- Fiction and fiction writing. We will start the term by looking at poetry, and we will be writing and performing our own poetry.
In Mathematics, we will be looking at decimals and shape. By the end of Year 4 all pupils should know their times-tables to 12 x 12, so we will be working on this throughout the year!
Our topic in Science is all about how human have changed the shape of our earth.
After our exciting History topics last term we are moving on to Geography, our first topic is looking at towns and villages across the UK.
In Art we will be linking our work to Geography and Science.
We will continue to use Purple Mash to support our Computing work: both in terms of skills development as well as topic application.
In Class 9 we have outdoor PE with Mr Hawthorne on Wednesday and Thursday , so please make sure your full kit is in school for the week. Remember to bring in winter wear for PE (School tracksuit bottoms and tops).
We will continue to have French and music lessons on Tuesday morning.
Mrs Mavers and Mrs Davies are here to help us, especially during our Maths and English lessons. We are very lucky to have them.
