Summer Term (Archive)

Welcome to Term 6

 

Welcome back!  Owls have had another fantastic start to term.  They are full of enthusiasm and have already hit the ground running with tackling all the learning opportunities presented to them this term. 

This term our humanities focus is China and India Superpowers.  As part of this we will be learning about how these two nations have risen to become Superpowers and what their influence in the world means today.

In writing, we will be completing recount by writing a Newspaper Report.  After that we will writing a Wishing Tale based on the format of rags to riches.

Reading this term will centre around the text ‘Charlotte’s Web’ a very popular story exploring themes of friendship; change and growing up; death and mortality; nature and rebirth and; personal morals.  These are important themes to consider at this time of the school year when change and moving on are key thoughts.  For non-fiction we will be exploring biography and autobiography linking to our science topic of Scientists and Inventors.

At the beginning of this term, all children in Year 4 will take the Multiplication Tables Check which consists of 25 questions take on a tablet computer.  It is an automated system which allows children 6 seconds to respond to the question.  We have been practising this in class and alongside our daily times tables practice, children have already made huge progress in this area.  In our maths lessons we will be covering the topics of Money, Shape, Position and Direction and Statistics

 

Other areas of learning this term are:

Science –Electricity followed by Inventors and Scientists

RE – Islam

PSHE –  Changing Me

PE – Frisbee/Rounders

Art and Design – Nature

Computing – Focus on html

Spanish – The Classroom

 

Owls will be conducting some of their learning this term out in our Forest School area.

This term our history topic is the Suffragettes.  As part of this we will be learning about the reasons behind the formation of this group, what they stood for and the actions they took.  Key individuals we will study are:  Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst, Emily Davison and Millicent Fawcett.

In writing, we will be writing Quest stories and for non-fiction we will be writing recounts using our knowledge of the Suffragette movement.  This may involve getting into the role of one of the famous characters around at that time!

 

Reading this term will centre around the text ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ which considers the experiences of refugees.  As part of this we will also look at non-fiction texts focusing on this topic.

 

In maths, our focus for this term is decimals and time.   We will be continuing to practice of all the times tables.  Once again, we can’t stress how important it is in all elements of maths to have a sound knowledge of the multiplication tables.  Times Tables Rockstars is an excellent resource for practising at home.  Five to ten minutes daily really does make all the difference.

 

Other areas of learning this term are:

Science – Sound and Electricity

RE – Sikhism and Islam

PSHE –  Relationships

PE – Athletics and Cricket

Music – Samba

Art and Design – ‘Power to the People’

Owls class has had another amazing start to term.  We are always so impressed with their resilience and attitudes to learning.  Keep it up Owls!
