Welcome to Class 4D
In English this term we are looking at the text How to be a Viking. The story will come to life as we explore the characters and develop our own writing based on the key features of the story. Following this we will join Hiccup on his adventures as he learns How to Train a Dragon. We will be working hard to improve our handwriting and develop our punctuation and grammatical features. Later we will be studying some of the fantastic works of Michael Morpurgo.
In our creative curriculum topic we are finding about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and considering why they came to settle in the United Kingdom. We will be looking at colour in nature and considering Viking skills by trying our hand at weaving and will also be visited by Bjorn the Viking.
In Numeracy we will be building on our previously learnt number skills developing our understanding of place value – adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, including problem solving and reasoning. We will be discovering how the Romans used number and exploring how we still use their today.
In our RE topics this term we are looking at family trees including the family of God in scripture, confirmation; being called to the church and God’s gift of love and friendship in Jesus.
