Topic - ROAD TRIP USA!
Like the Vikings and Christopher Columbus before them, Year 4 have now discovered the Americas! Next half term we will carry on with our work in our topic “Road Trip USA”. We will continue to focus on Art and Design Technology as we take a road trip across the whole of America, stopping off at various states to investigate the culture of the country.
In English we will continue reading our fantastic class read “The boy at the Back of the Class.” So far the children have really enjoyed this text and we have used it as an inspiration to write a range of wonderful fact files and diary entries. It has also inspired a number of our P4C lessons and will continue to do so next half term!
This half term we will be learning about Area, Shape, Position and Movement.
The children will also be participating in regular multiplication checks. TO prepare for this new half term, the children should practice and learn their times tables upto 12 x 12.
Science - Sound
This half term we will continue with our work on ‘Sound’.
We will also be looking at the different types of scientific investigation and carry out a range of these to develop our scientific working skills.
This term we will be thinking about the question, ‘Why do Christians learn from the Creation story?’ To answer this question, we will explore the story of creation and find out what impact it has on Christians today.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth,”
PE will take place on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school every day and that all items are clearly labelled. The PE kit is compulsory and pupils will need: A pair of pumps, a white plain t-shirt and black shorts. Grey or black jogging bottoms are also allowed in the cold weather. PE kits are compulsory for Health and Safety purposes.
Children are expected to bring their books in everyday so they can be heard read at any time. Children also take part in weekly guided reading sessions with the teacher or LSA. We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child, but do ask that you make every effort to read at least 5 times per week with them, and make a comment and sign their reading records.
Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle into school every day which is clearly labelled with their name. Children are expected to take their water bottle home at the end of each day to wash at home and return the next day. We have noticed that a large number of our children have not been bringing water bottles in, meaning that they are sharing cups with other children and potentially passing on bugs and germs.
