Isaac made this metal casing so it was strong enough too go in battle as in Robot Wars. Maybe we'll see him competing in the Arena against other Robots one day!

Look what Sam made all by himself! What a fantastic looking Apple Pie. I bet it tasted good too! Isaac did a great job creating this Chicken cake, influenced by the fun the family had watching 'Nailed it!'. Chloe, we've caught you pinching the cake mixture!

Class 4

Research & record in your ‘Home Learning’ book about Materials & their Properties, Mountains of the British Isles or a personal topic of interest.

Class 4 children can also log in to IDL to complete Numeracy activities.

Their ‘white’ books & 10 min homework books will also be sent home.

Dear Parent and Carers,

Happy New Year!

Class 4 have already made a great start to 2020 and are excited about our new topic -

MIGHTY MOUNTAINS!  In this geography topic, the children will find out about mountains; how they are formed; different mountain ranges in the Uk and across the world; mountain climates; human activity in mountain areas and famous mountain expeditions. The children will develop their use of ordnance survey maps to locate mountain ranges using 4 and 6 figure grid references

The topic will give us the opportunity to teach in a cross curricular way and to develop the children's skills in art, geography and DT.  We will be exploring the art of Georgia O’Keefe and Nicholas Roerich as well as local Lake District artists. The children will have the opportunity to explore different mediums including pastels and paints and will be recreating their own artwork in the style of the artists.

Our writing will be linked to the topic and to our class story, ‘The Abominables’ by Eva Ibbotson and the book ‘Everest’ by Alexandra Stewart. We will also look at some of Wainwright’s Guides. The children will have the opportunity to develop story writing, persuasive writing, explanations, diary entries and newspaper reports in a meaningful way.  

 

In Science, we will be completing the topic on ‘Light’ and will then focus on ‘Properties of Materials’ and ‘Changing State’ (Solids, liquids and gases). The children will be working scientifically to develop their knowledge and understanding in these areas. In RE we will be doing a unit of work based around the question: ‘What does it mean to be a Muslim in British Society today?’  Following that we will do a topic linked to Easter and the Resurrection. The children will continue to be involved in preparing for collective worship and class prayer.

 

We will continue to follow the ‘No Nonsense Spelling’ programme which is linked to National curriculum requirements and provides a structured programme to develop children’s strategies for learning to spell. The children will have weekly spelling linked to the area of study for the week or to their personal spelling lists which will be given out on Tuesdays; they will have a spelling test on Mondays.

In Maths, the focus will be fractions, decimals, percentages and geometry as well as regular practise of the four operations. The children will develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving in line with the mastery approach to teaching maths. Please help your child continue to learn and recall multiplication and division facts – I cannot emphasise enough how important this is and how much multiplication facts are used in other areas of maths.

In PE, the children will be developing their hockey skills in preparation for a tournament; they will be working on their Gymnastics Skills and will be preparing for 'Dance Platform' with a specialist dance teacher. The children always enjoy this, and it is a great opportunity for them to be involved in working as a team to produce a dance which will be performed at The Brewery Arts Centre before Easter.

Homework will and will be based around the 10 Minute Tests in Grammar, Reading and Maths for Year 6 and Reading and Maths for Year 5.  As well as this, a piece of work linked to the topic or to the science will be set this will vary from weekly tasks to a longer home learning project. It is important that children hand homework in on time so it can be marked, and class work planned to support areas of difficulty.

I know the children will enjoy the term ahead and will continue to do their best, building on the great work they did in the autumn term. Many thanks for your continued support. Please contact me if there are any problems or worries that your child may have.

Thank you

Mrs Carr & Mrs Fletcher
