Summer Term 2
Welcome to Class 4
 
Greetings from your class teacher: Mrs Nicholls

Our learning journey this half term...
 

Could we survive without water?

 

This half term, Class 4 will be looking at how water affects us every day. This is a science based topic and we will be classifying, exploring and experimenting the whole term. The children will be look at states of matter and creating their own tests to answer questions. Our writing focus will be poetry, the children will be looking at different styles of poetry and creating their own work. We will also be looking at how to write the perfect instructions. During the term, we will have a visitor who is going to teach us how to make ice cream! If all goes well, the children can then experiment with some of their own creations.

 

In maths this half term, we will begin to look at line graphs and statistics. The children will be learning how to read tables and create their own questions based on the data. Following this, we will explore angles, recognising, ordering and comparing. Towards the end the term, we will study symmetry and coordinates. 

 

RE this term, allows the children to explore and interpret the story of Pentecost, the focus for this unit is the ‘handing on of faith’ through the work of the apostles, saints and ourselves. The nature of the Holy Spirit is explored as identified in Scripture. This should develop an understanding of how the Holy Spirit energises, unites and brings about change.
