This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing this year.
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
I hope you have all had a well deserved rest over the last week and are raring to go for term 4. This term pupils will be transported back to Ancient China, to the time of the Shang Dynasty. Hawks class will be immersed within the history, art, lifestyle and geography of ancient China.
During Mathematics, the term will begin by focusing on fractions and shifting to decimals as the term progresses. We will begin by tackling equivalent fractions before moving on to adding and subtracting and finishing with calculating fractions of different quantities.
Within Science, the children will be learning about electricity and how it is the presence and flow of electric charge. Year 4 will learn how electricity is a form of energy that comes in positive and negative forms, that occur naturally (as in lightning), or are produced (as in generator). During Geography the class will be looking at China, including the major cities, mountain ranges and natural features of the country and how they differ from the UK.
PE will remain on a Thursday afternoon and a Friday morning with myself and Mr Hayes, so full kits will be needed on these days. This term during my PE lessons, Hawks class will be focusing on invasion games, so children with earrings need to remove them prior to PE due to health and safety.
A homework grid will be handed out alongside this letter containing a variety of activities to be completed. Each task will be worth house points and it is up to you and your child how many you complete over the forthcoming weeks. Tasks can either be handed in weekly or as a whole at the end of the term. If the piece chosen needs to be in written form please record this in the provided homework books. As well as this, opportunities at home for reading with your child is highly recommended and spelling practice for our weekly tests.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I am at the door most days after school or if not please leave a message at the office or a note with your child to give to me.
