English
To begin this half term we will continue to develop our narrative writing linked to The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Then our English lessons will be closely linked to our science topic exploring healthy eating choices and preparing persuasive arguments and leaflets. Later, we will be investigating and writing newspaper and magazine articles linked to our study of Brazil as the venue for the World Cup as well as other exciting sporting events this summer. During this time we will be reading two class novels with historical settings. One is by Michael Morpurgo focussing on football and the other by Eva Ibbotson concerning a young girl who moves to Brazil and the Amazon rainforest. We will be writing our own story with a historical setting along with poetry and playscripts linked to these novels.    

Mathematics
We will continue to study place value and the number system and to apply our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in order to solve problems. We will be developing our skills in capacity, shape, with a special problem solving.  We will form links with science and our theme to engage in practical data handling skills. Each week the children will be exploring a particular maths investigation to apply the skills they have learned.

Science and Technology
During this term we are focussing on ‘Healthy Me’ considering the needs of our bodies as well as those of the athletes we will be studying.  We will be following the journey of our food through our bodies beginning in our mouths with teeth and eating. During this part of the topic we will investigate types of teeth and how we can keep them healthy. The next part of the journey will involve the digestive system and how the food we need is taken into our bodies and used. We will also be thinking about the importance of exercise and sleep. We will learn to record and present our results creating graphs, pictograms and pie charts. In design technology we will be researching what makes a balanced diet as well as designing and making healthy snacks and drinks.

Theme 
We are very excited about our SPORT theme this term and we are looking forward to following the exciting events during the Summer term.  We will be focussing mainly on the World Cup and the different areas of Brazil where this will be taking place. It will involve links with English, science & technology and geography developing our skills and understanding. We will learn about contrasting areas of Brazil as well as gaining a greater understanding of other participating countries.   

R.E.
This half-term we will be extending our learning about ‘What makes a great leader?’ to Judaism. We will be focusing on Moses and his role in leading the Jews from Egypt to their Promised Land. During this theme we will learn about some of the Jewish traditions and celebrations such as the Feast of the Passover and Sukkot and how these are linked to the Exodus. We will also consider what makes people trustworthy and why they were prepared to put their trust in Moses.

Music
The children will be continuing to develop their music skills with Mrs Barker and Miss Metcalfe on Wednesday afternoons and these will also be related to our theme.

Art and Design
Digital art is the area we will focus on this term.  Sketching people participating in a range of sports will act as our starting point before moving onto manipulating sporting images using a range of digital programmes. We will experiment with colours, textures and simple filters.

ICT
As well as developing their ability to use tools within paint packages to edit and change an image in art, the children will construct a sport related database and use it to answer questions through graphing their initial data.

P.E.
We are fortunate to continue to have the support of a specialist P.E. teacher to help us develop our skills this term. We will be exploring cross-curricular links in Outdoor Adventurous Activities and Striking and Fielding skills and games. In addition Yr 4 children’ will continue to attend swimming with the Yr 5 pupils until half term. PE takes place every Wednesday, and either Thursday or Friday but children need to have their PE kit in school EVERYDAY for clubs etc. Please try not to send your child in earrings on these days as even if these can be removed there is always the worry that things will be lost! Thank you!

Helping at Home:
Please continue to use the ‘Learning Journeys’ for ‘instant recall facts’ such as number bonds and times tables and the ‘Spelling Challenges’ book for ‘Support for Spelling’ and phonics that your child brings home each night. They have been taught how to use these books but again, please come in if you are unsure. Also please encourage and support you child with the reading and home challenge activities. Thank you!
 
We spend a lot of time in the classroom talking about and practising working together as a team. We discuss ways in which we can make everyone feel welcome and valued as part of our class team. However, if your child is not feeling happy about school for any reason, please do not hesitate to let us know so that we can arrange a mutually convenient time to sort things out.
 
If anyone can help with a small group of children in their guided reading and skills time (9:00-9:30 on Mon, Tues and Thurs then please let us know. This would involve activities such as x table assessment, hearing children read or just sitting with them to answer questions related to their learning. Support to hear children read independently at any time would also be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you as always for all your support.

Artist Phil Hobbs

|

Sycamore class and The Art Club enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of watercolour tuition from professional artist, Mr Phil Hobbs. They enjoyed looking at his amazing paintings and applying the techniques taught to their own work. It really was a 'WOW' afternoon!
 

 

Colne Valley Museum

|

 

English
During the first half term our Literacy lessons will be closely linked to our topics on electricity and the amazing inventions of the Victorian era.   We will be focussing on some non-fiction genres including instructions, explanations and persuasive writing; when we hope to persuade the public to use some of the ‘new-fangled’ ideas of the 1800s. In the second half of the term we will be ‘Meeting the Robots’ and the children will be leading the lines of enquiry but inspired by The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and some time travel in our very own Tardis! We want to create images through poetry and to develop our skills in narrative writing through adventure stories particularly extending our understanding of the use of figurative language.
 
Mathematics
We will continue to study place value and the number system and to apply our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in order to solve problems. We will be developing our skills in mass, shape, with a special focus on triangles and fractions.   We will form links with science and our theme to engage in practical data handling skills. Each week the children will be exploring a particular maths investigation to apply the skills they have learned.
 
Science and Technology
During the first half term we will be focussing on ‘Electricity’ which inspired us during the recent ‘Mad Science’ demonstration our school! We will be learning how to construct circuits for different purposes as well as considering the uses and relative dangers of battery and mains electricity. Our learning will be applied later in the term and integrated with work on 3D structures in Art and Design. We will learn to record and present our results creating graphs from spread sheets. Later we will be experimenting with sound and exploring changes in state of solids, liquids and gases.
 
Theme 
Our broad theme of ‘WOW!’ has been carefully linked to all areas of the curriculum to make the learning more meaningful to the children. It will involve us extending our science, technological and history skills using books, pictures, photos, real artefacts and the internet as sources of information. We will learn about what everyday life must have been like before the invention of things we now take for granted! In particular we will be researching electrical inventions; how they work in science and how they changed the lives of the Victorians.   
 
R.E.
This half-term we will be thinking about ‘What makes a great leader?’ We will be considering what we mean by a good role model and who we respect and would consider a good leader. We will be exploring the life of Nelson Mandela, the impact of his leadership and looking at the commitment of others who have been inspired by the way Jesus and Muhammad lived their lives.
 
Music
The children will be continuing to develop their music skills with Mrs Barker on Wednesday afternoons and these will also be related to our theme.
 
Art and Design
In Art and Design, children will explore ideas linked to the science topic ‘Electricity’ to produce ‘Wow’ pieces of Art work. First the children will study and research the exciting patterns, captured through photographs, made by lightning, electrical sparks and plasma balls. The children will then be taught weaving and sewing techniques, to create a range of textiles inspired by electricity. It is hoped, weather dependent, that the pupils will then work collaboratively to create a whole class 3-dimensional piece of work to display outside.
 
ICT
Children will learn about simple Control and Monitoring techniques and how they are used in real life. Pupils will learn to program a range of floor and screen turtles, using commands to create and edit simple procedures. 
 
P.E.
We are fortunate to continue to have the support of a P.E. teacher to help us develop our skills this term. We will be exploring cross curricular links in gym and invasion games focusing on aspects of our theme.  In addition, the ‘second half of the Yr 4 children’ will attend swimming with Yrs 5 & 6 until mid-February to ensure they have all had the same opportunities. The Y3 pupils and remaining Y4s will continue to develop their games skills. They will need some warmer items in case the weather is cold. PE takes place every Wednesday, and either Thursday or Friday but children need to have their PE kit in school EVERYDAY for clubs etc. Please try not to send your child in earrings on these days as even if they can be removed there is always the worry that things will be lost! Thank you!

Summer Term 2013

The Lake District

English
Our Literacy lessons will be linked to the theme and we will be writing adventure stories set in the outdoors. Later, we will be studying newspaper reports and magazines before producing our own brochures and articles about aspects of the Lake District and topics studied in science and Design Technology. We will continue with our important daily Guided Reading and Skills time, when children follow-up their guided reading sessions, as well as develop handwriting, spelling, number and ICT skills.

Mathematics 
We will be focusing on applying our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in order to solve problems. We will be developing a data base of information linked to mountains and lakes in the Lake District. We will also be furthering our understanding of fractions and 3D shape. We will use practical opportunities to gather and handle data and represent it through pictograms, bar graphs and Venn and Carroll diagrams.

Science and Technology
This term we are focusing on three main areas for our investigations. Firstly, we will be learning about the function of the main parts of a plant and enjoying the opportunity to take our learning outside into our school garden. Later, we will be investigating properties of materials through the study of rocks and soils and their uses in both our own locality and in the Lake District.  With visits in mind, we will be preparing for a picnic involving hot and iced foods and finding the best insulators to keep our food at the correct temperature. We will be linking this to design technology applying our learning about insulation to clothing and how we might dress for outdoor adventure.

Humanities
Our Lake District theme will involve us in the development of practical skills such as map reading and research into the lives and crafts of people who have lived in the Lake District in both the past and the present. We will learn about the climate and land use in the Lakes and think about environmental issues following its discovery as a place for leisure. Visits, drama and ICT will all help to stimulate and consolidate our learning.

R.E.
This half-term we will be learning about Buddhism We will be thinking about religions say about doing good and how we should live our lives. Our learning will be supported by visit from a Buddhist to help us learn about aspects of the life of the Buddha.

Music
The children will be continuing to develop their music skills with Mrs Barker on Wednesday afternoon and these will also be related to our Lake District theme.

Art and Design
The children will be studying the art of Van Gogh initially to produce paintings of plants linked to our science topic followed by landscapes linked to our Lake District theme.  We will also be using collage techniques to produce landscape pictures using a range of materials.  Also linked with our Lakes theme we will be studying well known Lake District artists and producing landscape paintings in their style.   As part of this work we will be developing the children’s sketching skills and use of perspective, foreground and background.

P.E.
For one of our sessions we will be learning skills for Outdoor Adventurous Activities focusing on orienteering, trails and team building skills whilst our other lesson will be dance linked to the water in the first half term, after half term we will be focusing on striking and fielding games such as rounders and cricket and athletics. The Year 4 children will continue swimming for the remainder of this half term.  PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday but children need to have their PE kit in school EVERYDAY.  Please try not to send your child in earrings on these days as even if they can be removed there is always the worry that things will be lost! Thank you!

Helping at Home:

Ancient Egypt day with Mr Tully...

|

Mr Tully transported the year 3 and 4 children to Ancient Egypt where they mummified a king and dressed up.  They thoroughly enjoyed the visit and learned an enormous amount!

 

 

English
We will continue with our important daily Guided Reading and Skills time: when children follow up their guided reading sessions, develop handwriting, spelling, number and ICT skills. Our Literacy lessons will focus on myths and tales from Ancient Times as well as poetry linked to light and dark.  After half term we will be writing reports about aspects of Ancient Egypt based on information texts we have studied and research that we have carried out.

Mathematics 
We will be focusing on counting, estimation and rounding and applying our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in order to solve problems. We will be developing our time, measuring and data handling skills linked to our learning in science about light and shadows. We will also be concentrating on fractions and shape. We will be using robots and ICT to support our learning on position, movement and angles. 

Science and Technology
This term we are focussing on light and shadows within our topic on space. We will hopefully be out in the sunshine observing, measuring and discussing changes in the shape, size and positions of shadows. We will also be investigating reflection and transparency using mirrors and everyday objects. We will apply our understanding to the way Ancient civilisations told the time and to phenomena in our solar system. Later in the term we will be getting out into the garden to develop our understanding of plants and plant seeds for this year.  We will also be designing and making an item linked with the garden in DT.

Humanities
We are very excited about our topic on Ancient Egypt! We will be using evidence from the past to find out about what it would have been like to live both as a pharaoh and a slave in these times. We will look at ancient artefacts and stories to help us understand what was important to people who lived in these times and what they believed in. Visits, drama and ICT will help stimulate and consolidate our learning.

R.E.
This half-term we will be learning about Islam and why the Prophet Mohammad is respected by Muslims. We will be thinking about who we personally look up to and why and considering how we can be good role models to others. After half term, we will be focusing on what it means to be rescued or saved. We will be learning some New Testament stories such as The Lost Sheep and relating our learning to the reasons for Jesus’ death on Good Friday.
 
Music
The children will be continuing to develop their music skills with Mrs Barker on Wednesday afternoon and these will also be related to our Long, Long Ago theme.

P.E.
We will be learning skills for net and wall games during our games lesson. Our other session will be gym then dance after half term.  PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday but children need to have their PE kit in school EVERYDAY. Please could you check that pumps still fit include a warm top jogging pants and outdoor shoes but also shorts to enable your child to access the apparatus in the hall.  Please try not to send your child in earrings on these days as even if they can be removed there is always the worry that things will be lost!
