In art, we will be learning sketching and shading techniques, then designing, making and evaluating ancient Greek style pots out of clay. Our English work also links to our topic as we will be reading and writing Greek myths.


Our science unit this term is Living Things and their Habitats, which will include an outing to Cringle Park.


In music lessons, we will be learning to play the recorder. We are also hoping to enter the Young Voices event, where pupils are invited to sing at the Manchester Arena. More information to follow. Our outdoor games sport is basketball. 4B will be focusing on gymnastics in PE and 4Y will be focusing on dance. In PSHE, we will be celebrating our talents and sharing these with each other. In computing, we will be learning how to stay safe online and writing internet blogs.

Maths

The main focus of our maths lessons this half term will be place value and written addition and subtraction methods. We will continue to have daily CLIC sessions, where we will practise our mental maths skills.
