Lemurs Year 4
Welcome back after the holidays!
Here is a brief outline of the work that we will be covering in each curriculum area during the summer term.
Maths: We will be consolidating and deepening our learning of the four operations, fractions, decimals, measure and time.
English: We will be working on writing play scripts, recounts, and biographies, along with revising word and sentence based skills.
Science: We will be studying Habitats and Sound.
Geography: We will be exploring aspects of UK geography.
History: We will be learning about the Tudors, in particular about Henry VIII and his 6 Wives.
Art: The children will be exploring textiles.
DT; Children will be designing and making money holders.
RE: Term 5 - Hinduism - What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?
Term 6 - Why do some people think that life is a journey and what significant experiences mark this?
PE: Children will do tennis, OAA, athletics and rounders in their PE lessons.
Computing: Children will be being toy designers.
I will continue to give homework on a Tuesday and this will be collected on the following Monday. Mr Parr will continue to give the children spellings termly, which will be tested on a Friday. Altogether the homework should take no more than 90 minutes each week (in accordance with Government recommendations). Please remember that if your child has spent 30 minutes on one piece of work and has ‘had enough,’ stop, and just write a little note on the work.
I expect children to read or to listen to reading regularly at home and all children have a diary in which you can write any comments.
All PE is expected to be outdoors, therefore please ensure your child has trainers at school. These are more supportive of the foot/ankle than plimsolls. PE sessions will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Long hair will need to be tied back and earrings should be removed or covered.
I hope that you will find this information useful and if you have any queries please come and discuss them with us.
