Welcome back! We have another busy half term ahead so hopefully you have all enjoyed a restful break and are back, refreshed and ready to do some more great learning.
This half term in Maths, we will be building on our work with fractions by starting our decimals unit. In English we will be studying three books. We started our first book today which is called ‘The Promise’ by Nicola Davies, a story about a young girl who lives in a miserable, dull, lonely city. We’ll find out what happens by the end of the week!
In Science we will starting our electricity unit where we will develop our understanding of how simple circuits work. We will be studying Christianity in RE and learning about mountains in Geography. This half term both year 4 classes will also start their class music lessons on Thursday.
Next week is Book Week at school and we will be celebrating World Book Day as part of this. During this year’s Book Week we are focusing on books which celebrate differences.
In Year 4 we will be reading a book called ‘The Invisible Boy’ by Trudy Ludwig and doing some writing based on this book. For World Book Day on Thursday, 5th March, all adults and children will be dressing up as characters from their year group book. I have included some pictures below from the book to help you with your costumes for the day.
Characters include: Brian (the invisible boy), Brian’s classmates, Brian’s drawings (a dragon, pirate, a super hero), the class teacher, Mrs Carlotti. Two other important characters are: Justin (the boy in the stripey t-shirt) and Emilio (the boy with the yellow sleeves) – you’ll find out why they are important next week!
