"Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can."  John Wesley

Spring 2

This half-term we are going to be learning about lots of exciting and interesting topics in 4M. Read on to find out more about what your child will be doing. 

English 

Our unit of study this half-term is to write a non-chronological report on an animal and to create an adventure story. Our class book this term is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. We will be reading this novel throughout the half-term and lots of our work will be based on this book.

 

Maths

We will start this half-term focussing on fractions. We will be discussing what fractions are and looking at equivalent fractions. We will then be moving on to adding and subtracting fractions. We will also be focussing on practising our times tables as often as we can.

Science 

Our theme this half-term in science is ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. We will be looking at different animals and classifying them. Key words in our learning will include vertebrates, invertebrates, lifecycles, classification and environmental changes. We are hoping to be able to look after some caterpillars which will then turn into butterflies as part of our learning.

Geography

This half-term we will be looking at mountains and rivers. We will be identifying some of the world’s highest mountains and locating them on world maps and globes. We will also be looking at the water cycle and linking this to rivers around the world. We will also be linking this to human and physical features in order to deepen our geographical knowledge.

Religious Education

Our unit this half-term will be looking at how we live our lives and relating this to Christianity. We will be looking at the story of Jesus in the Wilderness and how this relates to Lent and the Easter story. We will also be discussing the theme of sacrifice.

Computing

This term in computing we will be focusing video and multimedia. We will be creating our own videos using green screen technology. We will also be using AR (Augmented Reality) to create presentations about deadly predators.

PE

This half-term we will be looking at developing our throwing and catching skills. We will be practising different types of throwing and catching techniques. We will also be learning how to play different games such as tag rugby where we will get the opportunity to use our new skills.

PSHE

In PSHE, we will be discussing how to keep ourselves healthy, both physically and emotionally. We will discuss recognise how different friendship groups are formed, how we fit into them and the friends we value the most. We will also be looking at the role of leaders and the importance of understanding our own roles within society.
