Welcome to 4/5K

Welcome to Year 4/5K, your class teacher is Mrs Kerr and your teaching assistant is Mrs Burns.. 

Year 4 Sleepover and trip to Bickerton Hill.

Year 4 enjoyed 2 days of outdoor learning at the end of the spring term. We went to Bickerton Hill and in small groups navigated over the hill using an Ordnance Survey map. We visited Holy Trinity Chiurch in Bickerton and then came back to school for our sleepover. We made rockets in the evening and had a camp fire. On Friday we walked to the local wood and worked with Tim. We explored the wood and also lit small fires using a flint and steel and then boiled water using a kelly kettle to make hot chocolate. 

Year 5 Sleepover and Activities with Active Hope

Year 5 had 2 exciting days of outdoor activities with Active Hope and the opportunity to sleepover in school. Over the course of the 2 days all children had a go at archery, shelter building, wild cooking and took part in a range of problem solving games. During the evening of the sleepover we held a Year 5's got talent competition. Dances, comedy, magic and musical performances entertained us all and staff were amazed at what hidden talents some of the children have.

Summer Term

During the Summer term we will be covering a range of topics.

In Maths we will focus on measures, geometry and statistics. We will be telling the time, using money, recognising different angles, plotting co-ordinates and problem solving using information from bar charts, pictogramsand other types of tables and graphs.

 

 

 

English will involve a study of the book Danny Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

Our Science topic for the term will be Plants. We will:

  • identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers
  • explore the requirements of plants for life and growth and how they vary from plant to plant.
  • investigate the way in which water is transported within plants.
  • explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.                                                                                                                      

     In History we will be studying Ancient Greece.  

 

 

 

 

    Our Geography focus is on diffent types of settlements.

 

 

 

 

  In R.E we will explore the Muslim religion and explore how and why Muslims fast at Ramadan.

 

 

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday and will take place outdoors. Due to the weather children are encouraged to wear leggins, jogging bottoms or tracksuits for PE and to have their kit with them everyday so that we can try and choose our PE slot according to the better weather.

Music

This year we are fortunate to be able to have guitar tuition for the whole class. These lessons will be on a Monday afternoon. If your child has a guitar it would be great if they could bring it to school on a Monday to use in the lesson. If not we do have guitars in school for the children to use and hopefully they will be able to bring one home to practise on in a few weeks time. 

Testing Magnetic strength

We have been having fun in Science this term learning all about forces and magnets. We have explored the different poles on a magnet and how they repel and attract. We have also explored how different types of magnet have different magnetic strength. Have a look at the photos of us all investigating with different types of magnets.

Outdoor Learning with Active Hope

Every Thrsday afternoon during November Year 4 worked outside with Active Hope. We have done some orienteering, taken part in team games and worked on solving proiblems together. It has all been great fun!
