Summer term i

We are learning about lots of different topics:
  • English this half term includes a mixture of texts and inspirations.  We will learn about many different aspects of fiction and non-fiction.  This includes recount writing based on The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish (Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean), performance poetry and finally non-chronological report writing.  In this, we will write our own website all about Hogwarts!
  • Our topic this half term is called 'Recent Revolutions' and will have a history focus of the Industrial Revolution and rise of the railways.
  • This half term in art/DT we are taking inspiration from L.S. Lowry and studying industrial scenes.
  • Our science work is about magnets and how they work.  We will perform lots of experiments in order to find out all about them!
  • In music we will be developing our skills in reading music, playing tuned percussion and singing through learning Blackbird (The Beatles).  We are also taking part in The Big Sing at Carrow Road, organised by the Norfolk Music Hub - https://www.norfolkmusichub.org.uk/site/events/event/the-big-sing/
  • We are learning French this year - Bonjour!  Across the year we are gaining a solid grounding in the basics, with both Year 3 and Year 4 learning the language for the first time.
  • In Computing, Key Stage 2 will explore different programming platforms: Lightbot (http://lightbot.com/flash.html), Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/), Kodu (http://www.kodugamelab.com/) and Blockly (https://blockly-games.appspot.com/).  Over the year we also extend our learning about Microsoft Office, computer safety and any other coding that we discover along the way!
