Welcome Message

In Class 4 we are preparing ourselves for a very busy summer term!

 

In maths we will continue to develop our mastery approach, developing our key skills to solve problems and puzzles and will also be using recipes to help us with our work on ratio and proportion. We will continue to create our own word problems and this term they will involve weight and capacity.   Our key focus will be to learn our tables (using times Tables Rock Stars to help us) and to apply that knowledge throughout the maths curriculum.  The first half of the term will focus on fractions, decimals and percentages and in the second half of the term our focus will be written calculation, and in particular multiplication and division.

 

Our science topics this term is healthy eating, digestion and the respiratory  system. We will be looking at how our heart and lungs work and the things that we can do to keep our bodies fit and healthy.  We will also be reviewing a range of ICT programmes and choosing the most effective way of presenting our findings and investigation results.

 

Our topic in the first half of the term will be the Mayan civilisation.  We will learn about their historical heritage and will plan and complete a range of activities to develop our history and geography keys skills. Where possible, we will be taking an enquiry led approach to our topic work.  To complete their independent projects the children will generate their own questions and plan and conduct their own research using a variety of information sources. 

 

 

PE this term will be outdoor games and the children will need there full outdoor and indoor kit in school every day so we can be flexible and are prepared for all weather conditions.  We will be getting expert coaching in hockey and cricket and will also have the opportunity to take part in a range of outdoor education and team building challenges. 

 

Homework

Mrs Palmer will give spelling homework on Friday to help prepare for our spelling test on the following Friday. 

Maths homework will be given out on Thursday be completed over the weekend and handed in on the following Monday.  In addition to this the children would benefit from reading to an adult twice a week and using TT Rock Stars regularly .
