Welcome to Curlews Class!
Welcome to Year 4 with Curlews and Puffins. Throughout this year we will be exploring and investigating a wealth of interesting and exciting topics across the curriculum. Our first topic is the mystery of H2O. We will learn how water is made, how water changes across the water cycle and use creative water based themes to enthuse the children in all lessons.
In English, the children will be exploring and researching facts about water and using their findings to produce a thrilling non-chronological report. Descriptive writing will follow, with the children using ambitious and vivid vocabulary to describe an underwater setting. Finally, and most importantly, the children will be creating a set of instructions on how to cook fish fingers. Then we will put these to the test when we actually cook them in class! Keep your calendar clear as you will be invited in to try them.
Our scientific brains will be bulging as the children tackle new, interesting information, exciting experiments and courageous challenges. Our first focus is the properties of solids, liquids and gases and how external forces impact these properties. This will take us into the ever-changing world of evaporation, melting, freezing and boiling, as we learn how properties can change depending on their temperature.
Within RE, children will be learning about devotion and inspiration, not just from a religious perspective, but how these qualities apply in everyday life. In French, we will focus on numbers, dates and ‘school life’ vocabulary.
This term, PE will be on a Monday morning and a Friday afternoon. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. Homework will be issued on a Wednesday to be returned the following Monday.
