Welcome to Class 9!
Welcome back after the Easter break. This Summer 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 the church and how it is special as a place of worship to many of us. We will end Y4 focusing on prayer and how it is important to many of us.
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. We will start the term by looking at how explanations are written, including writing one for an imaginary machine.
In Mathematics, we will be looking at Data, as well as consolidating number work from earlier terms. 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 Electricity. The children will have opportunity to make circuits and have plenty of practical opportunities.
We will starting a new Geography topic entitled "Rivers". The children will find out about the features of a river, focusing on the River Amazon. Later in the term, the children will take part in a water workshop, learning about the Water Cycle in a practical context.
In Art we will be linking our work to Geography.
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.
We will continue to have French and music lessons on Tuesday morning.
Mrs Mavers is here to help us, especially during our Maths and English lessons. We are very lucky to have her!
Other exciting events during the Summer term include the Colomendy residential trip; DT week and a French themed day to coincide with Bastille Day. We certainly have a busy term ahead!
