Welcome back, we hope you were able to spend some time together with your families this half term before the term ahead with all it brings.
This term our main topic will be Light at the end of the tunnel, let’s hope this is an indication of what we might see in our real world! This is a science topic where the children will learn about electricity, the children will investigate circuits, switches, conductors and insulators. We will also be investigating light where we will look at both reflection and shadows. Linked to this topic our DT project will be to design and make an electronic Christmas card.
Our English focus this term is based around the book Into the Forest by Anthony Browne where the children will produce some fantastic narrative writing, as well as this we will look at the narrative poem The Night Before Christmas and will work on our understanding and performance of the poem. For more details of the other subjects see our yearly overview.
This year the children will have their French, PE and music lessons on a Thursday afternoon. They will, therefore, need to wear their PE kit on this day each week. They will also have a second PE lesson taught by the class teacher these will be on a Friday. They will once again need to come into school in their PE kit on this day.
This term we would usually be putting together a Y4 Nativity performance, we are currently working on how we might do a ‘covid friendly’ version. Watch this space.
