In Maths, we will be continuing our Year 4 maths work, we will be looking at decimals and fractions
Our topic for Spring 2 is ‘Traders and Raiders’
Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores. Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lives of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land. Make a Saxon sword or a Viking brooch and decorate it with intricate patterns. Choose to be a Saxon or Viking and trade your crafty goods, but let’s keep it cool. We don’t want a fight breaking out. Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?
In Science, we are learning about electricity. We will be looking at different types of electricity, man made and natural, and what appliances need electricity and which don’t. We will be creating our own circuits, investigating what a circuit needs in order to be a complete circuit. We are going to test different circuits and explain whether they are complete circuits or not and how we can fix them so that electricity can flow!
In RE we will be looking at Christianity and the Christmas story. We will be looking at symbols and thinking about what the most significant part of the nativity story is for Christians today.
In French, we will look at classroom instructions and the weather.
Etudions le français!
