Class 4


 Welcome to Class 4

Miss Bacon teaches Class 4, alongside Mrs Roberts and Mrs Simpson, our amazing                                                                TA's.

                         We are a class of Year 4 and Year 5 children.


Autumn Term i

This half term we are learning about a variety of topics which we are very excited about:

  • Our Topic this half term is called 'Globetrotters' and we will be learning about Africa! The children have contributed so many fantastic ideas about what they'd like to learn about Africa, in particular, African farming and fair trade foods; so we are really looking forward to exploring these areas! We will also learn about types of settlement and land use, economic activity and the distribution of natural resources.
  • In English we are focusing on fiction and non-fiction writing and poetry, some of which will be linked to  Africa! Within this, we will be focusing on spelling, punctuation and grammar to produce writing we can be really proud of.
  •  Art/D.T will involve painting! We will look at Chris Ofili and Tony Hudson for some inspiration for our own masterpieces. All children will need to have an art apron or old shirt in school every day please.
  •  In Science this half- term we will be learning all about properties and changes of materials. This will include comparing materials, investigating thermal conductors and insulators, dissolving materials, separating mixtures of materials and identifying and explaining irreversible chemical changes. We will certainly be busy making predictions and experimenting!
  • In RE we are exploring the question 'What do Christians learn from the creation story?'
  • In music this half-term we will be enjoying completing the Charanga Music Programme 'Livin' On A Prayer'. 
  • In French we are re-capping and building upon our knowledge through stories, songs and practicing oracy and literacy.

  • In Computing we are developing our own games!

     








PE
  • PE is on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons.

  • Spelling books will be returned to the children on the same day.
Reading
  • Children should aim to read for pleasure every day, whether it is a book, magazine, newspaper or other! 
  • Whilst reading, children should be encouraged to ask questions about the story, make predictions, look at the pictures to find clues and learn new words. 


N.B. Miss Bacon is not in school on Tuesday mornings.
