Welcome to year 4a as we prepare for the last half term of another strange year.
We have lots of fun activities planned over the next few weeks and will be working hard to complete our learning, ready for Year 5.
As keen readers we have two books on the go in class - Grandpa's Great Escape is our Love of Reading daily read and Kensuke's Kingdom is our English novel. Our writing for the rest of term will link to Kensuke's Kingdom.
After we've finished fractions and decimals in maths we will turn our attention to time.
This half term's science topic is sound so we will be doing experiments and investigation to find out how sound is made, how it travels and the different scientific vocabulary linked to sound.
We have moved from geography to history this half term and our studies will focus on Anglo Saxons and Vikings. Watch this space as we may have a virtual visitor heading our way.
RE this term is looking at what religions practise within our local area and the different places of worship we may see in and around Wigan and Greater Manchester.
In music we are developing our sense of rhythm and timing on the African drums, building towards an end of term performance.
Our PE continues to be the swimming sessions at the Pelican Centre every Tuesday. It is great to see the children enjoying these sessions and making fantastic progress in the pool.
As ever, if you have any comments or concerns, I am always available via class dojo.
