Happy New Year 4JJ!
It's been a great first term in Year 4 and the new spring term will also be packed full of fun learning. We have so much in store for you including our annual performance which always provides us with extra opportunities to show case our talents.
We will be starting our new topic all about the Rainforests of the world.
Our newly transformed classroom will inspire us to journey through the many layers of these intrepid forests and research the animals that live there. We have an exciting trip to the recycling plant, where we will explore why recycling is important and how our actions impact on our world. Also we have a super World Book day to look forward to on 1st March.
We will be linking our learning of reading and writing to our topic this term, looking at stories from other cultures, poetry and explanation texts.
Remember to KEEP reading 4JJ and log this in your reading journals
in order to earn those valuable house points!!!
In Maths we will look at number patterns, place value and extend our knowledge of decimals. We will develop our skills in the four rules of maths and our understanding of how to apply these to real life problems.
We will continue to build on our times table knowledge and consider how this helps us with division. Our understanding of division will enable us to move our learning forward and consider fractions and how these are related to division when solving maths puzzles and problems.
Whether temperate or tropical, Rainforests are so amazing and beautiful. These incredible places cover only 6 %of the Earth's surface but yet they contain MORE THAN 1/2 of the world's plant and animal species!
In Science we will explore the animals of the Rainforest and how their habitat is under threat.
We are lucky to have the coach this term who will be encouraging us to develop our skills further. We will complete our swimming lessons and demonstrate our progress in the water!
