News from the Classroom

What a fantastic first half of the Summer Term. We have enjoyed so many different activities and it is all being capped off this week with biscuit making in D.T.

 

English

This term we are looking at suspense narrative and are studying 'The Red Eye'. During the topic, we will be looking at the features of the text and which techniques the writer has used to create tension and suspense. 

 

Maths

In Year 3 we will be finishing our unit on volume and capacity and starting our fractions topic.

In Year 4 we have been learning all about decimals and money.

 

Science

Our topic this half term is rocks and soil.

 

Geography and History

This term we will be learning all about volcanoes, earthquakes and tornados. We will be learning all about the layers of the Earth and what causes natural disasters. 

 

PE

Art

This half term our focus is on drawing and painting. We will be studying Hokusai's artwork 'The Great Wave' and making our own copy of it. 

 

D.T.

In D.T. will be making biscuits in D.T. Part of the project involves deciding what we like and dislike about various biscuits, before we have a go at designing our own.

 

Music

This term we will be listening to and creating our own Jazz music.

 

Computing

This half term the focus is on what a computer is made up of and the difference between inputs and outputs.

Homework: Maths or English are set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Thursday. It is expected that children read at least 5 x per week at home. They will  receive house points for doing their homework well. Children may read independently, but we encourage parents to listen to them read aloud and discuss the text as often as possible. 

 

Spellings will be taught at school every week.
