Welcome! We are some of the Yr4 children, plus all Y5 and Y6 pupils.
This term our topic is called “All Change…” where we will be looking closely at how our country has changed over time by the influence of some INVADERS! We will also be investigating how planet Earth has changed by the creation of mountains. During Science, we will be investigating how voltage changes electricity and how humans have evolved over time by exploring inheritance and adaptation. The class may also have some little friends to look after and observe how they change over time – watch this space….
In English we will be using the epic poem of “Beowulf” as a stimulus for our writing. The tasks may include: descriptions of Grendel’s liar, wanted posters, job applications, invitations to the mead-hall plus a lot more. Our writing target this term is to write a variety of sentences using a mixture of sentence openers. We are also expected to read at least 3 times a week, learn our weekly spellings and complete our writing homework.
Every week we are set Maths homework online via the Mathletics Maths Website. Our teacher sets homework which reflects what is being done in the class. If we are unable to access our homework due to technical difficulties then it is our responsibility to inform our teacher and we will be expected to do it during our break times. This term our Maths target is to know all multiplication tables and to be confident in the methods of calculation.
We have also got a slight change in staff for part of the week as we would like to welcome Mrs McIntosh to the class, who will be teaching Yr4/5 English and Maths on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.
Finally, the Yr5/6 children are very excited about going to PGL, Liddington to attempt a variety of Outdoor Adventurous Activities with Mrs Smart and Miss Court.
