I hope that you are all enjoying a lovely Easter holiday and you are ready for another busy and exciting term in Class 4JB! This term there will be plenty of exciting things to look forward to. Our main topic this term is geography based where we will be learning all about rainforests. Our classroom book area has already been transformed into a hot, tropical rainforest-but watch out for the snakes!
Our novel study this term is The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry and there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the novel through drama, reading and writing. Further topic areas include:
Linking Network trip to Herringthorpe Junior School.
Participating in a Shakespeare Festival looking at the play 'Henry V’ and performing this at Magna! A Picture This project which looks at Monet’s Water-Lily Pond painted in 1899 Orchestra continues every Friday.
Designing cars in DT with AMRC.
Growing our own tomatoes in the Bio Dome.
A history topic about Ancient Egypt.
In Science we will be learning about solids, liquids and gases.
RE & PSHE lessons looking at friendship.
Spanish lessons with Senora Simmons.
PE will be rounders and athletics – these are outdoor lessons so please remember to bring the correct PE kit including outdoor pumps/trainers every Wednesday. You will also need to continue bringing swimwear EVERY Tuesday.
You will be taking a letter home with you about homework in 4JB and this includes: Reading, learning a times table given to you by Mrs Barber (children are expected to know all of their times tables confidently by the end of Y4) learning weekly spellings and activities related to our topics which are handed in on a fortnightly basis. Homework standards have always been very high in 4JB and I'm sure you will also do a fantastic job with this too!
Each week I will choose a 'star of the week' based on good behaviour, work and attitude. The star of the week will have the opportunity to take Leo home for the weekend to look after him so he doesn't get lonely in the classroom. They can also complete his diary describing his exciting adventures.
