Welcome to Year 4S
Summer Term 2019
Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine.
This half term, we will continue to compare our coastal town of Southport with the Lake District and I look forward to sharing your projects based on a family day out to the Lakes. You will have opportunities to use maps at different scales, relate photos to maps, study aerial views and look at land use patterns. You will learn to appreciate how some of these aspects have changed over time.
We will make vegetable soup following on from the work we completed last term on Seasonality. Our Art project will enable you to observe fruit and vegetables and produce observational drawings with charcoal. You will study the work of famous artists e.g. Braque, Caravaggio and Carl Warner and enjoy working towards a final composition using paint.
We will continue to study Europe focusing on major rivers and mountain ranges and each of you will research a European country in detail thinking about the climate, landmarks, currency, culture and population. Together, we will create a Europe display in class and celebrate our new knowledge.
The Summer Creative Geography Overview below features how subjects connect through this topic making it fun and exciting to study.
Children are asked to bring their reading book and record to school each day. I am encouraging the children to practise reading aloud at home and keep a signed record of their reading both in school and at home.
Homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned the following Friday. Weekly homework will include a Maths based activity to reinforce learning which has taken place during the week and a spelling activity. The children will be tested each Friday on the spelling words and they will be assessed each week on times table facts.
We will be having coaches for PE every Monday and Thursday this half term.
I look forward to getting to another fun term.
