Greetings from your class teacher: Mrs Nicholls

Our learning journey this half term...

Can you bring your drawings to life?


This half term, Class 4 will be be learning a range of artistic techniques in order to create some of their own fantastic pieces. To further expand our knowledge of the topic, we will be writing letters and information texts focusing on artist studies and describing our own art work. 


In maths this half term, we will continue with decimals and diving by 10 and 100, as well as comparing and ordering decimals. In the final half of the term, we will be learning how to order, round and estimate amount of money. Problem solving will play a huge role in ensuring the children gain a deeper understanding of this topic.  


RE this term, allows the children to explore and interpret the story of The Road to Emmaus, as well as studying the Ascension and recognising how it shows hope. At the end of our Easter topic we will think about the impact the Resurrection has on Christians today.
