This term our topic is 'A Bear Called Paddington'.

Science will examine the classification of living things and take a look at the impact of environmental change. In DT children will engage in the design, plan and make process to understand how pulleys, cogs and gears can be used. ICT will bring childrens' work to life as they use greenscreens to combine video images with different backgrounds and produce a news report. RE will look at key celebrations of different faiths including Easter and Pentecost.
In English, we are looking at the use of direct speech in our writing and will be reading the book 'A Bear Called Paddington' together as a class.
We will be continuing with fractions and decimals before moving on to measure and time.
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.
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 copy of the new homework grid can be found below. We would love your child to pick their favourite four activities to complete and are looking forward to sharing them in class. Please submit all homework after the Easter holidays on Monday 8th April.
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.
