Year 4 Spring Newsletter Second Half Term 2017



 
 
Welcome back! We hope you all had a brilliant half term holiday and the children are raring to go with their learning.

 
We are continuing with our theme of River Deep, Mountain High for the rest of this term.
In English, we will be studying performance poetry and playscripts.  We will be looking at the work of the award-winning poet, Joseph Coelho for our inspiration.
As previously, for the overview of the Maths we will be covering this term, please see the uploaded file on our webpage.
In Science, we will be continuing to learn about habitats and our trip at the end of term will consolidate our learning. Science Week begins on Friday 10th March and concludes on Friday 17th March. We will be participating in a range of scientific activities involving “Wheels”.

In Geography, we will be continuing to learn about the formation and features of a river and follow its journey to the sea. We will also become enthusiastic mountain experts by journeying to the Kumaon region of India and learn about the life of a Kumaon child. We will find out about the fascinating Kumaon region and the tallest peaks of the Himalayas. We will also compare this region to our own as we develop our learning.


 
 

 
In RE.  we will be talking about Lent and Easter.
 
In Art, the children will be continuing to work with Ms Blackborow. This will be linked to our Geography unit and we shall be looking at famous paintings which include rivers and ponds.
