Hull 2098

As our very exciting year has come to an end we are looking at Hull in the future and hoping to carry on the legacy of Hull 2017. The children will be sharing their ideas of what they think Hull will be like in the future and designing vehicles using their science, technology and engineering knowledge. This topic will also utilise the chidren's ICT skills where they can design and edit their models before constructing.

Literacy

This term the children will be focussing on instructions and narrative genres using the text 'How to train your dragon'. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock tells his tale of how he tamed a dragon during viking times. This is a firm favourite with the children and they are really looking forward to getting their teeth stuck into the text.

Maths

During the spring term, the children will revisit fractions, buliding on their knowledge from year 3. They will also be grouping and dividing as well as making links between their times table knowledge and division. In topic maths we are going to be learning about movement and coordinates, this will be very useful for a designing projects!

Our second Book Club text this year is Roald Dahl's, 'James and the Giant Peach'. Each Friday the children will have a section from the book to read at home as part of their weekly homework. We encourage you to read and enjoy this text together and ask that everyone brings their book back on Monday for our daily Book Club sessions.
