Year Four

Summer Term 2019

Welcome to the Summer Term in Year 4
This term we will be a very busy. As you will see we have many visits planned which will further complement our learning in the classroom.

Our focus in English will be on persuasive writing and we will link this with the work that we will be doing in geography on Coasts. This term the children will be performing our year group assembly on Coasts, which will be on Friday 24th May at 9 a.m. in the school hall. You are all very welcome to join us. Please prepare yourself for some shocking and terrible jokes!

In maths, the children will continue their work on number, shape and data as well as problem solving. By the end of Year 4 our aim is that they all know their tables up to 12 times 12. We continue to appreciate your support at home with this.

In science, the children have finished learning about human nutrition and will now be looking at food chains and classification. As part of  classification and food chains we will be visiting Jersey Zoo this term to take part in workshops – the dates are to be confirmed.

The girls will be practising their word processing to write letters as well as using stop motion to show how coastal erosion works. Geography
This term we will be looking at Coasts and how they are formed. The children will be looking at how we, as humans, use the coast and also how we can protect it.

In PE and Games the children will be taking part in rounders, cricket and athletics.

This term in music, year 4 will be continuing to learn the recorder and music notation through the Charanga music scheme focusing on two tunes “5 Note Samba” and My Recorder Makes Music.” They will also be learning to sing “Lean on Me” and learning the accompaniment parts to the song played on tuned percussion and recorders. We will also be learning 2 songs for their class assembly and songs for the end of term events.

We will be developing understanding of the religions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Art/Design Technology
The children will be using coasts as a starting point to produce some work based on Peter Knight’s coastal scenes around Jersey. They will also use the topic to inspire some silk paintings.

Useful information
Crabbe will take place on Wednesday 3rd July 2019. This will be a day of activities at the residential centre to include field trip activities at Greve de Lecq and outdoor/initiative exercises. We will write to you more at length concerning this visit at a later date, however, the girls will be transported by coach and returned to school by the end of the day.

Kind regards,
Mr J Paul                      Mrs H Toudic
