Welcome to Class 4
Spring Term 2020
This half term we will be learning about National Parks with a focus on Yosemite. We will learn the physical and human features of the park. United Utilities will also be completing a water workshop
As a class we are very excited about this half term!
We looked at Carl Linnaeus and how he classified plants and animals. He separated then into 7 sections and we learnt a mnemonic to remember the order:
kids, prefer, chocolate, over, fresh, green, salad.
we also created our own classification with wolf in the species section to start it off. The class each drew an animal to fit into the classification.
Friday 1st February
Class 4 had a workshop, led by Dolce, on how to prepare a typical meal. We compared the nutritional information of a supermarket chicken curry and one that is made in our own school kitchen.
We were amazing at how much healthier the curry made from fresh, the basic ingredients needed and what supermarkets actually put in their food.
Below is a comparison
We have PE on a Wednesday and the children will require a white t-shirt, shorts and trainers. They can bring tracksuit bottoms and a jacket / jumper and will be allowed to wear these in cold weather.
Homework will be given out on a Monday to be returned on the Friday.
We will be starting a new spelling programme called ‘Spell to Excel’. Spelling activities will be sent home but more information will follow in the next week or so.
The children need to read a MINIMUM 3 times a week and signed by an adult - reading journals will be checked on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
