Year 4 and 5
Welcome to the Narnia Class
In Narnia and Emerald City our topic is “Superheroes”.
This half term the children will learn all about the features of Myths - discovering the characters who are considered to be the first ever Superheroes – before moving on to Biographies and writing their own about a hero of their choice.
Our Science work on Materials and Their Properties will allow lots of opportunities to investigate “What makes a good Superhero costume?”-Did Iron Man really get it right or is Superman’s more practical?
In Geography we will focus on Natural Disasters; in particular about the features of volcanoes, their formation and how they are distributed around the world, as well as using our research skills to find out about the key aspects of earthquakes – What are tectonic plates and seismic waves?
We will also learn about “superheroes” of different religions and develop our computing skills to create a multimedia presentation about our very own superhero. We are all looking forward to a ‘Super’ term full of hard work, creativity and fun!
Year 5 children will continue to go swimming on Monday afternoons. Year 4 children will take part in outdoor PE with Mrs Hunt. Alll children will do PE on Wednesdays as we have the "Chance to Shine" cricket coach visiting school. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school.
All children have homework books and a task sheet. They may choose their homework task for the week from the termly list. Please could alll homework tasks be handed in on a Thursday so we may clebrate homework together on Fridays. Remember to as creative as you wish for each task.
Children have an opportunity to change their reading books everyday. However it is helpful if reading diaries are signed to ensure children are reading, engaging and understanding what they read. Please ensure you listen to your child read regularly and sign their reading diaries.
