Welcome to Class 4! We are really looking forward to our year with you all!
This term we will be focusing on the Vikings! We are looking at the historical aspects, but also making Longships in DT and linking to our Literacy. We are looking at how newspapers are made, the features and making our own! We will make them by hand and also using software on computers. Stories in Historical settings will also be read and we will use Talk for Writing actions. Hopefully we will be having a visitor, or having a visit too! In the initial couple of weeks, we shall make faces in different ways… using sketching and pencil mainly, also exploring ways to edit and add effects using software in computing . Literacy will also focus on SPAG and developing skills in here. Next half term we will be investigating stories set in Imaginary worlds and adverts and poetry nearer to Christmas.
Maths is focused around the key concepts and the basics are still very crucial – focus on the Times Tables Challenge and remembering the important bonds! Science is on Animals and Humans, and later, Sound. Connected to this, we will make our own junk instruments in Design and Technology and test them with Key Stage 1 children! We will be creating and leading investigations in these. A city study of Liverpool will take place over next half term and is sure to be very interesting! And of course, we will be doing PSHE and PE weekly, continuing French with Mrs Banks and there will be guitar lessons with Mr Jones! RE will focus on The Church, then Light and links between religions and also at Christmas. What a busy term!
