Spring Term 2018
In Class 4 we have settled back in after the Christmas holiday and are looking forward to a busy Spring Term!
Our new topic is South America. In literacy we will be reading A Journey to the River Sea, a tale of life in the Amazon rainforest. We will also be looking at the history of South America and the lives of famous citizens. This will help us to write letters, diaries, newspaper reports and biographies based on what we have learned. As always we will be taking an enquiry led approach to our learning and the development of our key skills.
In ICT we will be looking and different ways of presenting information and will be producing PowerPoint presentations on an aspect of South America that the children have chosen.
Our science topic this term is Habitats and Food Chains and we will be studying a variety of living things that are native to the Eden Valley and South America by comparing and contrasting their habitats.
Spelling home will continue to be given on Thursdays to help prepare for our spelling test the following Thursday. Numeracy homework will be given out on Friday and needs to be handed in the following Monday morning.
The children also need to continue learning their multiplication tables and division facts up to 12 x 12 and reading three times a week at home. This is making a real difference to the children’s progress and your efforts at home are very much appreciated.
As the weather continues to be cold and unpredictable and the children will need to have their full indoor and outdoor PE kit (including pumps or trainers) in school every day.
