Welcome to Class 4L
Our creative curriculum topic will be completed in the second half of the term - it is closely guarded secret, so will be revealed then. Watch this space - more information will be added after half term.
The children will be learning to understand chronology, investigate and interpret the past, building an overview of world history. This exciting topic will see a range of new art techniques explored and with such a creative class, there will no doubt be a range of master pieces to be admired at the end of this topic. We will be comparing seasons with how they are now to how they were in the past and looking at the impact of flooding. We will finish this topic and the year with a trip to Lincoln Collection Museum where a range of activities will celebrate what the children have learnt.
Our topics in RE this term are New Life - where children learn about the coming of the Holy Spirit and the feast of Pentecost; Building Bridges, where children examine their conscience and begin to give reasons for religious actions used in the Sacrament of Reconciliation; concluding with God’s People – where children learn to describe some ways in which religion is lived out by different saints, knowing what a martyr is.
Habitats, Sound and States of Matter will be Science related activities for the term. The Sound topic links to our computing topic so I am sure there will be some fantastic music being composed… watch this space! Art will also be related to the habitat topic as we will be studying Georgia O’Keefe looking at abstract art and enhancing our shading skills.
In Maths lessons, children will be continuing to develop their efficiency in multiplication and division using written methods such as the bus stop method for short division, followed by addition and subtraction with a particular focus on problem solving and reasoning. We will also be studying various types of angles and learning to measure them in order to be able to solve a murder mystery. Children will need to continue to learn their times tables, practicing them daily as this will help them in all areas of maths. Measuring and baking will see the children completing some interesting challenges!
In English, children will write their own poetry based on, ‘The Three Little Ghosties,’ and develop their performance skills looking at range of poetry styles. Report writing and letter writing skills will also be enhanced. The second half of term will be linked to the Creative Curriuclum topic with lots of talk for writing taking place.
The last two weeks before May half term will see end of unit assessments in English and Mathematics.
