The topic for our final term of this school year is 'The Olympics'. We will be learning about the history of the biggest sporting event on the ancient Greek calendar, and how it compares with the Olympics we will all be enjoying over 2,700 years later.  Geography lessons will enable children to locate some of the nations competing in the Olympics and to identify capital cities using an atlas.  They will also use their knowledge of human and physical geography to label significant features across the world.  Science will focus on giving children an understanding of nutrition, the different types of nutrition and where it comes from.  They will also be examining the functions of the skeleton and muscles in the human body.  Art this term will be taking a look at abstract and concrete forms, with children learning how to draw shapes in 2D and 3D as well as sculpting using clay.  PSHE will support children as they discuss and understand the differences between men and women, and look at the role of antibiotics and good hygiene in the prevention of infectious diseases.


In English, children will be making good use of imperative (bossy) verbs to write instructions. We will then be using dialogue between characters to create a myth.


Children will be revisiting previous learning, including shape and angles, four operations and fractions as well as linking these to problem-solving.

Reading: Please continue to listen to your child read daily, even for 10 minutes, and complete the reading task in the reading journal. Books should be changed regularly. Books are changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

Maths Passport: Regular practise of Maths Passport targets helps pupils to retain knowledge and helps them to utilise these facts in other mathematical learning. 

Homework Grid:  A homework grid will be added to this page in the first week of term.

Times Tables: It is important all pupils are learning the timetables up to the 12 times table and know these by the end of year 4.
