Welcome to Class Four with Miss Jenkins and Mrs Ashworth!
We are very excited to start the new school year and we are looking forward to all of the interesting topics we are going to be learning about.
The first theme is ‘Sparks Might Fly’. The focus of this theme will be science and music. In the second half term, the theme will be ‘The Great Plague’. This theme will focus on history and geography.
English lessons, in the first half term, will include studying different play scripts, explanations and fantasy stories. The children will write their own play scripts; novels based on a model; and complete oral explanations linked to the theme. In the second half term, the children will be looking at fairy tales, recounts (newspaper articles) and narrative poetry.
During science lessons, in the first half term, the children will be learning all about electricity. They will learn all about the dangers of electricity and circuits. In the second half term, the children will be studying sound. This will include learning about the different functions of the human ear; vibrations caused by sound; how sound travels; and different ways of making sound.
The children will also be visiting the Manchester Recycling Centre in November as part of the theme, ‘The Great Plague’.
As well as going swimming on Thursday morning, Class Four will be focusing on gymnastics in PE.
