Term 5 - Food, Glorious Food
We have produced some knowledge organisers for some of our key projects. You can find them below. They are a great way to revise the key learning.
This term we shall be writing reports all about teeth. We shall learn about how to group and organise information using headings in our writing. Our guided reading text is Demon Dentist by David Walliams, we shall be learning about how the author's choice of words impacts the reader and how we can summarise the main ideas in a text.
In maths the year 4s will be learning about fractions, looking at what the digits in a fraction mean and linking this to images of fractions. We shall learn what equivalent fractions are and how to find them.
In maths the year 3s will be learning to bridge 10 when we add and subtract, for example 8+5 =13 (by partitioning the 5 into 2+3 so you add 2 to the 8 to make 10 and then add the 3 to make 13) before learning the number fact off by heart. We shall then be learning the 10, 5, 2, 4 and 8 multiplication tables, so we can recall them as quickly as we can.
Science - Teeth and Digestion
In science this term we are learning about teeth. We will learn what the different types of teeth are and what their jobs are. We shall also learn about the process of the digestive system.
RE - Forgiveness
In RE we are learning about the concept of forgiveness in different religions. We shall learn what it means to forgive and link this to the Jewish festival of Yom Kippur.
On a Tuesday we are looking at the skills needed for Tag Rugby, passing backwards and reaching low to take the tags. On a Wednesday we are looking at the skills needed for Tennis, forehand and backhand, serve and volley.
We shall be starting to use knowledge organisers as a way to share the key knowledge for subject areas with you. Please use these to revise the key knowledge with your children.
