For Spring 1, the young learners will continue to expand their knowledge and skills in a wide variety of fun and exciting ways.
In Literacy, the children will be writing a character description of P. T. Barnum as he approaches the Circus ring for the first time.
In Maths, Year 4 will continue their multiplication and division learning before moving onto perimeter.
In Guided Reading, our book of the half term is ‘The Wyrmstooth Crown’.
In Science, the chemists will be working to escape the CSI Laboratory! In order to accomplish this, they will be learning about the three states of matter (solids, liquids and gasses) and applying this knowledge to the Water Cycle.
As historians, we’ll journey through the history of ancient Maya, investigating and interpreting their culture and unique way of life.
In Computing, as graphic designers, the children will be exploring a range of photo editing skills. As well as this, they will improve their critical thinking skills by investigating how online media outlets use these skills to create “fake news”.
In P.E., the children will be improving their striking and fielding techniques by developing their cricketing skills.
In Music, Mr Knowles and Mr Redmill will be teaching the children how to play the Cornet.
Finally, the budding, young linguists will begin by exploring the festival of Epiphany before learning how to read, write and say animal names in French.
