Term 6

This term, we will be covering Geography and our topic will be the Natural Resources. We will be finding the answers to the following questions:

  • What are the worlds natural resources?
  • How has the use of natural resources changed?
  • How can using natural resources cause problems?
  • What natural resources do the UK and Chile have?

In English, our focus will be on narrative writing and we will be drawing on our history from the previous term to create our own Viking Saga.

In Design and Technology, we will be identifying the difference between electrical and electronic products. We will evaluate a range of existing torches and their features and develop a new functional torch design. Using our designs and knowledge of circuits from our previous Science lessons, we will then make our own working torches.    

In Maths, we will look at time, shape and data. Please support your child at home to practice the skill of telling  the time.

In RE, the question we will be investigating is ‘Why do some people believe that life is a journey?’ We will look at the important milestones in a persons life and what important events happen to many people.

For PE, we will be doing golf and cricket. Both will be done outside so please ensure you child has the correct PE kit every week. Both classes do PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

In science, our topic is classification. We will learn about different living things and how we can use classification of their individual characteristics in order to group and classify them.  

For music, we will be learning the ukulele. A specialist teacher will come in every Tuesday morning and teach both year 4 classes for a 30-minute session each. The school has enough ukuleles for each child so there is no expectation for you to provide this.

The year 4 multiplication check will take place in the first 2 weeks of term 6 so any extra practice would be beneficial. The expectation is that by the end of this academic year the children will know all their times tables up to 12 x 12. We will be testing the children on their times tables weekly. Please continue to help the children with their focused times table for that week but please do also concentrate on learning other times tables. These can be found in the back of their reading journals. Regular TTRockstars practise is advised.

For Reading, please continue to read with your child for 10 minutes every day if possible. A reading book will be sent home with each child every night. Please record any home reading in the Learning Journal.
