Welcome back to the final term in Year 4!
This term we will be refining our skills in number and trying to speed up our mental and written calculations. We will also be perfecting our data handling skills which will help us in our science work. In shape work, we will be learning about symmetry and looking for examples in everyday life.
This term, we will focus on story writing, news reports and writing plays. We will be using our topic 'The Egyptians' to inspire our writing which just keeps getting better!
Please continue to read with your child daily. We will be focusing on summarising what we have read and using our predicting skills to consider what may happen.
History - The Egyptians
During this topic, we will be creating a timeline of significant events, using our research skills to find out what life was like in Ancient Egypt
Science - Animals including humans
We will be investigating the human digestive system and plan to get hands on and messy to recreate how the digestive system works! It's amazing what you can do with tights and mashed banana! We will learn about the importance of our teeth and the best ways to look after them
We will continue to work on our processing skills. We will always link our work on Excel with our data handling in maths.
R.E. - Buddhism
This term, we will be studying the religion of Buddhism. We will learn about the origins of Buddhism and how Buddhists choose to live their life.
We will be learning how to read music and and sing 'Lean on Me'
