Welcome to the Year 4/5 page! In our class we love to play hard but work harder! We love to try new activities and challenge ourselves. We enjoy team work and foster a supportive group ethos. We are all individuals too who want to reach our own potential as well as nurturing the fantastic individual gifts and talents which we all have. Our first topic was Chocolate and since then we just love any excuse to eat chocolate!
This half term we are working on:
Topic (cross curricular) - Victorians and the local area. We will visit the Mill at Hardcastle Craggs. / The work and life of LS Lowry.
English - Our class reader is “Street Child” by Berlie Doherty / Persuasive writing and poetry.
Maths - Year 4 - Decimals, time, money, statistics and Geometry (shape, position and direction) - Year 5 - Decimals, Geometry (shape and measurement) and more in depth work on statistics. Both year groups are improving the recall of our timestables.
Science - Living Things and their habitats. We are learning about reproduction in plants before moving on to plants.
Art - Sculpture trail and observational drawing (hopefully outside!)
R.E. - ‘What did Jesus do to save human beings?’ / Jewish beliefs and compare/contrast these with Christian beliefs.
P.E is on Tuesdays. Cricket and Rounders
