This Term's Topics
IndiaScience: Human Nutrition
Welcome to Year 4.
This year, we continue to benefit from the expert teaching of Mrs Tuffin, our music teacher. We look forward to sharing our clarinet skills in the summer term.
This term we will be studying 'India'. We will begin the topic by discussing what we already know about India and finding out where in the world India is (continent, bordering countries,etc) and its distance from the UK. We will also explore India's varied climates, mountain ranges and major rivers. As part of this topic, we will engage in some creative Indian Art and DT. Keep your eyes peeled for some of our artwork.
Our Science Topic this half term is 'Human Nutrition'. We will look at the human digestive system and human teeth and compare this with other animals. In addition, our investigation will explore the damage caused to our tooth enamel by various liquids.
As a 'Healthy Eating School' we will take this opportunity to look at what a healthy balanced diet should be and the importance of ensuring that we include a variety of fruit and vegetables in our diet.
Week commencing 24th February is the beginning of Fairtrade Fortnight which will see us taking the time to consider the lives of the people who produce some of the food we eat and products we use.
Class 10 Home Learning
This year we will continue to use our homework grids. Homework has been split into four sections. The first section offers a wide range of activities for your child to choose from centered around our topic.
The second section contains weekly spellings which need to be written out and practised. Children are then asked to use a dictionary to look up the definitions of a choice of three spellings for that week.
The third part of homework for Year 4 is the Times Table Rockstars practice page. This contains a mixture of multiplication and division facts that's designed to be completed within a 3 minute time limit to improve your child's quick recall of number facts.
The last part of Year 4 homework is to read at least three times per week.
Please see the grid below for more information.
If you would like any further information or support with homework, please speak to Mrs Neil, Mrs Wallace or Mrs Scott who will be more than happy to help you.
