Residential

Please remember that this half term is our residential (April 27th and 28th). On day one we will be leaving school just before 9am, from here we will be going straight to Conwy where we will Ma4/4.1 spend the day firstly at the castle and then Plas Mawr. Later we will be heading to Pen-y-pass where we will stay for the night.

On the second day we will leave Pen-y-pass after breakfast and head to The Great Orme in Llandudno where we will spend the day on the tram, an environmental walk and at the copper mines.

If you have any further questions about our residential then please don’t hesitate to ask. I will arrange a parents meeting for the first week back.

Maths


Initially we will be starting our new topic of measurement Ma4/3.1 with Mrs Burke. We will be looking at converting units of measure, including time, which will lead onto telling the time. We will also be learning about shapes Ma4/3.2 and the position and direction Ma4/3.3 of them leading onto looking at area and perimeter. After half term we will move onto Data Handling - reading and interpreting data in a variety of formats and then drawing different tables and charts to represent given data.

Literacy

This term we will be continuing our work on information texts by learning about different countries. We will also be linking lots of our residential work with literacy by writing thank you letters, persuasive leaflets, and diary entries. After half term we will be working on our poetry skills learning how to write different types of poems. En4/3.3

Alongside this we will be focusing on Sentence Level work, Spelling and Grammar and Sustained Writing. En4/3.3 The children will be experimenting with sentence structure, using punctuation effectively to signpost meaning in longer, more complex sentences. En4/3.4ai This will include using fronted adverbials properly. En4/3.4av They will also be identifying a good range of connectives to link phrases and paragraphs.

Science

Linking to our topic of ‘solids, liquids and gases’ Sc4/3.1 the children will explore how to change the state of water, and that states can be reversed; they will explain evaporation and condensation and how these processes are used in the water cycle. Ge2/1.3 They will devise their own experiments to test and explain the above and give detailed conclusions of their results.

We will also be looking at the local environment including habitats, which also links well with our environmental walk on the residential up the Great Orme. Sc4/2.2

Topic

We have lots of things to do this term in topic and we will be linking our residential with this, including making our own residential books where we will be completing mapping Ge2/1.4 as well as lots of different types of writing linked to what we have done.

For our main topic we will be looking at the local area including local industry and local history. Hi2/2.1 We will looking at the trade for the area and we are hoping to visit the Lion Salt works museum Ge2/1.3, including looking at local rivers and canals and how they help with industry. Ge2/1.3a

PE


PE will still be taught on a Tuesday and Friday, so please ensure you have your full PE kit. Swimming will continue to take place on Thursdays.

Homework

Homework will still be handed out on a Tuesday to be returned the following Monday. As all the children now know most of their timestables we will no longer be doing weekly timestable tests. The children will however still receive one piece of maths, one piece of literacy, my maths and spellings each week.

 

Many thanks
