Year 4

With Mr Hodgins and Mrs Mollard

This term, Class 4 will be learning about Science in our 'The World Around Me' themed topic. Each week we will cover a different topic from: animals including humans, states of matter, sound and electricity.  Throughout this unit of work, the children will have lots of opportunities to plan and test their own experiments to unearth new problems and find answers to questions, using practical experiments and hands-on learning to explore new concepts.


Later in this half term, we will be attending Camp Kernow for our class residential. We will be linking our learning in our science themed topic to inspire and educate the children about sustainability and the natural environment through hands-on experience, adventure and exploration.


In writing, Class 4 will use the model text 'How to Catch a House Goblin' to write an instructional text about how to catch a dragon. We will be using dragon characters from the How to Train Your Dragon books by Cressida Cowell as the stimulus in our writing. The focus will be on using more complex sentences in our writing and applying carefully chosen language to give clear and detailed instructions. In the second half of the term we will be producing scrapbook/ diary about our trip to Camp Kernow.


Remember Class 4 will now have PE with Mr Jones every Wednesday mornings, so please don't forget your PE kits!


Wow! Another busy half-term ahead...
