Class 4

Planet Earth S.O.S

The title of this term’s Learning Journey is ‘Planet Earth SOS’. The children will investigate the impact that humans have on the planet and discover ways to combat the negative effects we have on our environment. In English this term we will start by exploring descriptive writing and what features we could add to our writing to make it more engaging when describing scenes from our planet. We will be examining the techniques that other authors use to make their writing so descriptive. We will then look at making arguments in our writing and writing a letter that argues our point of view.

In Maths we will be studying in depth around geometry and the properties of different shapes. This term the Year 4 students will finally be taking their Multiplication Tables Check where they will have 6 seconds to answer 25 mixed times tables questions, I wish them all the best of luck. In Geography we will be exploring coasts around Britain, looking at the erosion that takes place and the economic impact of seaside towns. In science this term, the children will investigate the life-cycles of different animals and living things, as well as exploring their habitats and what they need to survive and prosper.
