Hello everyone, welcome to Fox Class.
This term's connected curriculum topic is Misty Mountain, Raging River. It is a geographical based topic, where we can use the Atlases to explore grids on a map, contour lines and topography.
We will be learning about the journey of a river, rivers of the world and changing landscapes. Later on in the term, we will be focusing on mountains and will be exploring the different mountains of both the United Kingdom and the world.
We will be using the text 'Flotsam' for our writing inspiration in the first part of the term, followed by the wonderful book, 'Song of the Dolphin Boy'. The children will be writing diary entries, first-person narratives and setting descriptions as well as more formal letters and reports.
We will be starting the term with addition and subtraction, followed by measurement and multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.
We will be continuing to practise time tables daily. Please ensure you are learning these at home!
www. hit the button is a fantastic resource as well as time tables rockstars!
Our BIG Question:
'What is the Trinity'
PE will now take place on a Monday and Friday on week 1, and a Tuesday and Thursday on week 2. This term we will be focusing on multi-skills and basketball.
If you have any questions, or would like to know more please get in touch!
The children are expected to read a minimum of four times a week. Reading is a vital life skill and something that you cannot live without. A love for reading is something I aim to instil in Fox Class.
Spellings will be sent out on a weekly and termly basis. The children will sit a spelling test each Friday and are expected to stay in the practise any words they haven't learnt the previous week. The spellings for this term can be found at the bottom of the page.
Children are expected to know all of their times tables by the end of year 4. The children will be asked to sit a weekly 'Sound Check' on TT Rockstar. This only takes a maximum of 5 minutes and can be done within break/lunch time if the children do not have access to a computer.
