Welcome to Class 9!
Welcome back after the Christmas break. This Spring term is a very busy and exciting one for Year 4, when we will be learning lots of interesting things.
In RE, we will be reflecting on how Jesus showed his authority, through Bible stories and discussion.
We have really enjoyed taking part in the Votes for Schools project within our PSHE lessons! This has already 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 Literacy lessons we will be working hard to improve our reading, writing and spelling skills. We will be focusing on Non- Fiction and fiction writing, starting with studying the Classic poem " The Highway Man", by Alfred Noyes. Following that, the children will learn to write instructions of different kinds.
In Mathematics, we will be looking at Measures. This will include area and perimeter, as well as money and time. 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 Human Impact. The children will find out about how actions of humans have affected our world for good and bad.
We will starting a new Geography topic entitled "Settlements". The children will find out about the features of villages and towns ,as well as how our area has changed over time.
In Art we will be learning about landscapes, focusing on the Japanese artist Hokaidu.
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, so please make sure your full kit is in school for the week. Along side this, we will be doing gymnastics on Thursdays, lead by a LSSP coach. The children are very excited about this!
We will continue to have French and music lessons on Tuesday morning.
