We pride ourselves on being a warm, friendly class, who are enthusiastic about our learning journey. We encourage a love of learning through a challenging enquiry based Learning Challenge Curriculum.
We will be learning new writing skills and consolidating skills learned in previous years through different novels. The books and animations which will inspire our writing throughout the year are:
Kaspar the Prince of cats.
For the Birds - Pixar animation
Children are encouraged to read five times a week at home - please remember to sign their reading diaries. All children are competing in a new Reading Competition and have the chance to earn prizes each week.
Maths is taught daily and children will be continuing to develop the maths skills they learned in year 3. It is very important for children to learn their times tables on a regular basis at home and they will be tested every Friday.
Learning Challenge Curriculum
Each topic focuses on a question, which is then explored through individual lessons. We start each topic with a wow factor to engage children and enthuse their learning. Throughout the year we will be learning the following topics:
Science - What happens to the food we eat?
How could we survive without water?
How would you survive a day without electricity?
Why is the sound that One Direction make enjoyed by so many?
History and Geography - Why did the Titanic sink?
Why is Stoke on Trent a cool place to live?
Why were the Norman castles certainly not bouncy?
Where would you choose to build a city?
Our planned trips for this year are:
A Titanic workshop
Gladstone Pottery Museum
