 In Maths, we will be looking at number and place value.  We will be re-capping our mental and written methods for addition and subtraction.  We will then use these methods to solve reasoning problems.  Later in the term will move onto decimals , fractions , multiplication and division.




In English we will be looking at stories with historical settings and writing reports.  This will be linked to our topic this half term of 'The Great Plague'.

In our guided reading we will be reading and discussing a wide range of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and reference books.


Religious Education - Inspirational People

In RE, this half term, we will be following our scheme ' The Way, The Truth, The Life', and looking closely at stories from The Bible.


Our Science topic is States of Matter and we will compare and group materials together according to whether they are solids, liquids, or gases.  We will conduct experiments to observe how materials change state when they are heated  or cooled.

We will also investigate the water cycle and what part evaporation and condensation play in this. 

Art/Design Technology -Indigenous Art

We will be making models of London town in the 1600's as part of our topic ' The Great Plague.


Computing - Coding

We are looking at safe and effective internet research and this will be linked to our topic work.  We will additionally be learning how to create presentations to use in this work.


Physical Education

This half term Class 4 will be swimming on Tuesday afternoon. Each child will need swim wear and a towel ( goggles are optional).   The children will also have a PE lesson on Wednesday. 


Homework should be returned on Monday. Parents are asked to read with their child at least twice each week and sign the green reading record book, which should be returned with homework. We encourage the children to change their home reading book frequently and they are expected to read at least three times a week.
