Our learning journey this half term...
 
How could we survive without water? This term, the children will be looking at states of matter and the water cycle. The children will classify liquids, solids and gases in a practical experiment and write a poem about the water cycle.
 
Class 4 will be looking at proportional reasoning and geometry this term. The children will also spend extra time practising their remaining minute maths challenges in preparation for the next academic year.

 The focus for RE this term is Pentecost, the children will spend time role-playing, re-telling and exploring the event of Pentecost.
 
This term, the children will also be swimming every morning for the next three weeks. This is part of the Year 4 PE National Curriculum. 
The lovely life caravan 
 
On March the 8th and 9th Andy from the life education center came in and talked to us about the human body and teeth in the life caravan. There was a very funny giraffe called Harold and the children were very pleased to meet him!
