Class 4

Mr Barnard

English: We will be exploring The Jungle Book as our class text over the Summer Term. This will help us explore writing formats such as fact files and reports, and the grammatical processes needed to complete these styles. Our continued work on the use of more complex vocabulary in our writing will be supported through different interpretations of this fantastic story. To help further support our spellings we will have specific lessons looking at spelling rules so that the children have a greater understanding of how words are created.

Maths: We will review and extend our knowledge of time in the first weeks of term and then move onto using different units of measure. Following this we will focus on Shape & Geometry. Continued support at home with times tables, so that all children can complete their challenge, will be fantastic.

Science: This term’s science will be supported by our English work, where we will be investigating living things and their habitats. Children will practise using keys and grouping plants and animals with a focus on the difference between our local environment and the setting of The Jungle Book. On Fridays Year 5 will enjoy an outdoor Science/Forest School session led by Jane Steed.

Humanities: We will be studying India and Its diverse biomes as well as looking at its various religions. If anyone was any materials or artefacts that can support our learning journey that can be borrowed please let Mr Barnard & Mrs Cuthill know.

PE: On Friday afternoons Year 4 will be swimming this half term at Aylsham High School, while Year 5 will be practising their athletic skills with Mrs Cuthill. Our Tuesday session will be led by Premier sports where the children will need outdoor attire. Please ensure your children have a bottle of water to keep them hydrated during these sessions, as fingers crossed it’s going to be a sunny term.

Art: Lessons will be linked to our topic of the Jungle Book and India. We will create 3D maps of the Country, and also the creatures that inhabit it.
