Topic: We start off this year by exploring the Stone Age! Looking at Exploding Volcanoes in Geography and all about this early era in Human History. We will become archaeologists digging for treasures, study the first cave paintings and lots more.
English: We continue our Topic theme, starting with a favourite: Stone Age Boy and then a lovely book, Pebble in my Pocket. We will be using Read Write Inc to support our spelling programme. We are very pleased to be welcoming back Mr Beeby, our drama guru, and the children will be working on Performance Poetry on a Friday afternoon.
Science: We start off the Autumn Term leading our study of plants and trees and the changing season. Then follow this with Geology and the fascinating study of rocks. If you have any non precious gems that you'd like to bring in we will be creating a rock display. Lots of interesting things are planned for this topic!
PE We are very excited to use our track this year for mile a day so please have your trainers in every day. We will be doing PE on a Thursday and a Friday to start off with this year, with Lacrosse and Netball/Football. After half term we will have Gymnastics at Penrith and Keith from Newcastle Falcons coming back to teach us Rugby.
Maths: Year 4 this year will be taking part in the statutory times tables test in June so it is really important that all year 4's know their times tables up to 12x12! Homework for Maths and times tables/learn its will be given out at the beginning of the week. We will have a Big Maths Beat That! test and Times Tables test on Fridays. Please practise these at home.
