Dear parents and carers,
Welcome to the summer term!
This term we are excited to be working with Sam from the Military School to develop our teamwork, problem solving skills and physical activity. We’ve already enjoyed fire lighting and den building and can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us.
Our class topic is ‘Water World.’ We will be learning about the water cycle, the journey of a river, settlements by the water, plants and animals of the seashore and much more! We will need to use our map skills to locate rivers and their mountain sources and plot their journeys. Class 4 will learn some of the terminology associated with rivers and investigate why people chose to build settlements in particular locations. We will then discover which plants and animals live near and in the sea and find out more about their ecosystems and how we can protect them.
Our English work will begin with a focus on persuasive writing – can we persuade Mr Jones to get rid of school uniform and allow mobile phones in class? How persuasive can Class 4 be?
In RE we will be focussing on the events of Pentecost and the birth of Christianity. Year 4 and 5 will consider where St Paul journeyed and why, and will look at the advice her gave to the first Christians and how it applies to us in the present day. We will also look at the use of pilgrimages in Christianity and other religions and its impact on believers.
We look forward to continuing a strong parent partnership. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to either Mrs. Gorman or Mrs. Morris.
The end of the day is usually the best time, when we can afford you more time.
Mrs Gorman and Mrs Morris
