Welcome back Nunsmere after the Christmas break!


In literacy we will initially be looking at information texts- through this we will be looking at the ‘important’ parts of information and how we can determine what is useful, we will be linking this to our topic by looking at recycling, pollution, climate change and environmental issues and writing information texts on this. We will then look at using a thesaurus and a dictionary properly to enhance our writing skills. During the second half of the term we will be looking at persuasive writing, looking particularly at sentence types and vocabulary used. We will be looking at reports/ information leaflets before moving onto newspaper writing. (analysing, researching and identifying features in the view to write their own.)  En4/1a-1i, En4/2.1a-b, En4/2.2a-c , En4/3.1a-f ,En4/3.3a-e


In numeracy we will be completing our topic of subtraction and problem solving. Then our main focus in the first half term will be multiplication and division, and during the second half term we will be moving onto fractions where we will be looking at adding fractions, finding common fractions, and finding decimal equivalents. Please continue to learn times tables at home, and even if you know them all you can still practice getting faster to help with your mental maths skills! (up to 12x12)    Ma4/2.2 Ma 4/2.3, Ma4/2.4,


Our first topic in science will be Living Things and Their Habitats, which follows on from our previous topic of Animals and Humans. The children will recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways and explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment. We will then investigate and recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things. (This will link to Topic work) We will be carrying out investigations after planning them and we will also use tables to record and conclude our results. Sc4/2.1 , Sc4/3.1


For our topic we will be focusing on geography, looking at the environment and the world. The children will describe and understand key aspects of physical geography, including: climate zones, effects of volcanoes and earthquakes, and pollution. Another focus will be human geography, including: types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water. For the second half term we will be looking more at fair trade and renewable energy resources. We will also be doing work based on our residential next half term. Ge2/1.2a, Ge2/1.2a, Ge2/1.3a-b
