Welcome to Year 4b!
Our teacher is Mrs. Buck and working in our class alongside us is Mrs. Worthington and Mrs. Russell.
During summer term, we have lots of wonderful topics to learn about.
In Maths, we will be focussing on Time. How to tell, write and convert time, in both the 12 and 24 hour clock, both digitally and on an analogue clock.
We will also be revising all our arithmetic methods with 4 digit numbers in preparation for our move to Year 5.
Our English lessons will see us reading a fantastic book by Michael Morpurgo called 'Kensuke's Kingdom'. As we read the book, we'll be working on our writing skills by planning, drafting and editing letters, diaries and a narrative unit based on alternate endings.
Our Science topic is 'Sound' where we will explore how sound is made and how sound can be affected.
History is the start of our new topic all about Viking Britain and how the Vikings took over the Anglo-Saxons. We will have a different question to investigate each week.
Later in the term, our DT week will be all about designing, creating and evaluating our own light source.
PE will remain on a Wednesday and will take place outside. We will be working on a variety of skills such as cricket, athletics and rounders.
In PSHE we will be studying the unit 'Changing Me' and RE is all about different religious settings in our local area.
We will continue our Wider Opps music lessons with Mrs. Lord on a Friday where we will be practising and preparing our African drumming performance ready for our performance on Friday 16th July.
Reading books will be checked and changed on a Monday and Thursday. Our expectations are that children read 3 times a week at home. Watch out for the first winners of the Reading Championship badges this term!
