What’s happening this half term?
This half term will be basing all of our work in English around two books. The first will be The Great Paper Caper by Oliver Jeffers and the second will be The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. We will be using these books to write newspaper reports, debate writing and our own narratives.
In Maths we will be focussing on multiplication and division and using this to convert between measures, calculate areas and perimeter and incorperating lots of opertunities for reasoning and problem solving. We will also continue to work on our times tables including the division facts.
Our topic this half term is “Why is Climate Cool”. In this topic we will look at the difference between climate and weather. We will also look at the different climate zones around the world and the reasons for the different climates in relation to their position on the Earth.
This half term our Science unit is Sound. This will involve looking at how sounds are made, how we hear them and how sound can be altered in terms of pitch and volume. We will be carrying out lots of experiments with a particular focus on different ways to record our results.
Class 4 have been enjoying our ukulele lessons. We have learnt the different parts of a ukulele and this week have learnt to strum. Keep your eyes peeled for an invitation to come and listen to us perform some time...
