Year 4 and 5

Welcome to the Narnia Class

Spring Term (3): In Narnia and Emerald City our topic is “Where does all the water go?" 

Children will develop their skills of using maps, globes and Google Earth to locate rivers and oceans in Europe. Children will learn to explain and present the process of river formation. They will develop an understanding and use the language of rivers – erosion, deposition transportation. They will also  compare how a river has changed over time and research the impact on trade and history.

Water also gives us a great opportunity to study the work of Claude Monet. 

Our science topic is "Electricity." Children will learn all about electrical circuits and test materials ability to conduct electricity. They will put their knowledge of circuits to use by building their own circuit to create a buzz-wire game. Can you use your game to try to defeat a challenger. Who can remain ‘disconnected’ on the game? You will need to impress with your electrical knowhow.


PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure PE kit and school clothing is clearly named and is in school at all times "just in case!". Year 5 children will begin to go swimming on Wednesday afternoons from the Spring term. 


All children have homework books and a task sheet. Each homework task is worth points. Children should aim to complete a total of 20 points each half term. 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 celebrate 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.
