Spring Term 2
Welcome to Class 4
 
Greetings from your class teacher: Mrs Nicholls
Our fabulous Teaching Assistant is Mrs Archer
 
 
Our learning journey this half term...
 

Where would you choose to build a city.

 

This half term, Class 4 will be looking at where we would choose to build a city. In order to do this, we will be looking at cities around Europe and the UK. We will be comparing our city to others around the world, creating tourist information leaflets and even building model skyscrapers. 

 

In maths this half term, will begin our fractions topic. The children will learn how to recognise equivalent fractions, add and subtract fractions, as well as calculating fractions of a quantity. After this, we will move onto decimals and dividing whole numbers by 10 or 100. Problem solving will play a huge role in ensuring the children gain a deeper understanding of this topic.  

 

RE this term starts with looking at Judaism. We will be focusing on the Jewish Holy Day Yom Kippur, the class will recognise the meaning of this special day and compare it to a similar Christian Holiday. Following this, we will be focusing on Lent and the importance of this time leading up to Easter.
