Welcome back to what will be another fantastic half term in the Otters’ classroom! This term we will be investigating ‘How far would you go to save someone you don’t know?’ We will be researching the local village of Eyam to see how they sacrificed themselves to save others that they didn’t know. In Science, our topic is animals including humans – this will follow on from our work on Habitats last term. We will be doing lots of hands-on learning to understand the human body! This half term, we will be continuing our work on Fractions (we did some excellent work with fractions before half term so I am confident this will continue!). In English, we will be using our Learning Challenge topic of Eyam to write some brilliant newspaper reports, diaries and recounts. We even have an exciting Isolation Day coming up, to help us to understand the sacrifice the villagers made.
We have lots of school trips coming up! For RE, we will be going to visit a Jewish Synagogue and we have got the opportunity to take part in the Great Orchestra Experiment this year!
Clarinets will continue to be on a Monday afternoon and we will have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Mr Harvey was welcomed into our classroom before half term and will be continuing to teach us for Spring 2.
Our homework this half term is creative, see above for details.
The Year 4 Team,
Miss Beeden, Mrs Rourke and Mr Harvey
