Year 4/5

Welcome back to our final term in Year 4!


We have some fantastic activities for our  new topic of Extreme Environments.  We will be learning all about the different biomes, such as tropical rain forests and ice covered areas, and how they can offer extremes of weather. We will look at land use and how the weather affects this and the different flora and fauna of the areas. In history we will look at some of the great explorers of these areas.  


We will be using artistic techniques to produce a range of art work, using a variety of different materials, including making a skeleton using a variety of techniques.


In science this term, we will investigate the human body to include the skeleton and how we can continue to keep ourselves healthy.


PE is every Monday and Thursday in Y4G and Monday and Wednesday and Y4W, however as some of the PE is outside this might be subject to change. Therefore we ask if PE kits can be in school every day. Coaches have been provided for some activities  with the potential to participate in sports events and competition throughout the term. . Also, as the weather is getting warmer, please ensure you have suitable clothing. A water bottle should be brought into school every day.


Reading books should be in school every day and children should be heard read at least 3 times at home, as per the home/school agreement signed last year.


Homework normally goes out every Friday - please return by Wednesday at the latest.

Spelling tests are every Friday - please return the home spelling books on Fridays. 


Remember to check out the children zone and have a great term!
