This week we are celebrating international week across the whole school. Our focus is Albania and Islam..... Look at our gallery page to find some examples of our learning on Friday ! We will share some of work as part of our weekly sharing assembly.
Our new topic this term is 'Blue Abyss!'
Grab your wetsuit. We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal?
What do real divers get up to below the surface? Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first. What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures. Look closely and create a colourful, 3-D art exhibition when you rise to the surface. Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss ........................

This term we will be completing our guided reading in class of The demon Dentist, by David Walliams.
We will then move onto reading The Iron Woman by Ted Hughes.
Our focus during guided reading will be to use skip and scan techniques to help us to answer questions which involve inference. We will b reading longer extracts from the texts this term.
Our writing stimulus this term is 'Duffy's Lucky Escape' - a true story about the dangers of plastic in our oceans.
We will use this to help us to extend our sentence to include more detail and some of the year 4 grammar that we are studying.
We will continue to have daily revisits to our previous learning as part of 'Fluent in 5' we will also be using 'flashback 4' to interleave our new learning.
We continue to use the Mastery Approach using White Rose Maths.
Our focus this term will be decimals - comparing and rounding up. We will move onto money and telling the time.
