What has electricity ever done for us?

Our Spring term topic focuses on electricity and the all the wonderful things it does for us. We will be looking at famous electrical scientists and inventors who have changed the way we live over the last 150 years. We shall also be learning about electrical components and how to keep ourselves safe around electricity. Our D&T project will also focus on this area and we will use our knowledge of electrical circuits to create our own inventions.

This term the children will write a range of text types based on our class book ‘'Street Child' by Berlie Docherty. Our writing will include non- chronological reports, persuasion and narrative pieces. We will become more familiar with a wider range of sentence structures, grammatical features and spelling rules.

Homework is sent out on Fridays and your child will go through their work the following Friday with their class teacher. Homework consists of maths, spellings and hoem reading books.

Marvellous Maths!

During the Autumn term, the children will become more confident in working with 4 digit numbers. They will secure their understanding of place value and with mental and written methods for the four operations. Building on their work in Year 3, we will continue to rehearse times tables. Through our topic work, children will work with data and measures. 

Super Science!

In the first half term, our science focus will be solids, liquids and gases. We will have a visit from Yorkshire water who will explain more about the properties of this substance.  In the second half term, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. The children will be taking part in many hands on practical experiments and developing their scientific vocabulary
