Term 4

Welcome to Term 4! This term is a busy one with lots of exciting events like World Book Day, a Science House Event and Year 4 Camp. We are really looking forward to all these wonderful opportunities!

In our learning, our focus is ‘Bones and Bites, Muscles and Munchies’ which is a Science unit looking at how we can keep our bodies healthy. We will begin our learning identifying the skeleton of humans and other living things, before moving onto the different food groups and how we need to eat a balanced diet to keep healthy.

In English this term, our text is ‘Weslandia’ which is a story about a boy named ‘Wesley’. The children will explore the adventure of Wesley and the different challenges he faces, fitting into society. Through the form of letter writing and setting descriptions, the children will look at writing in the informal tone and use a range of prepositions to create detailed recounts. We will keep up our practice of spellings, in the hope the children continue to build on their confidence.

Elsewhere, in Maths, the children will be completing lots of fraction investigations to develop their understanding of adding and subtracting unit and non-unit fractions. The children will also look at equivalent fractions. We aim to also spend some time on measurement this term, with the children using their measuring skills to make slime!

Finally, in Design and Technology, the children will be looking at structures and will be working towards making their very own pavilion. In PE, the children are continuing their Netball focus, with the aim of applying their skills to game formats.
