For RE this half term, we will be learning about Christian beliefs surrounding Christmas! We will be looking at their beliefs and values as well as some of the key signs and symbols in their religion. Children will be retelling some of their scriptures to gain a deeper understanding of the faith.
Art: This term we hope to create some explosive art in the form of volcanic eruptions!
Geography: As we are learning about volcanoes and earthquakes, we will be looking at the geography of where these are most common (the ring of fire off the Pacific ocean). We will be looking at some of the most famous volcanoes and the landscapes in which they are found.
History: Again, this subject will link to our topic so we will be studying the traumatic eruption of Pompeii as well as other natural disasters.
Computing: In Sawley, online safety is of key importance. We will be having regular talks about not only the benefits of being online but also the risks. In year 4, we aim to prepare the children with a good understanding of their digital footprint and what to do if they see something they find uncomfortable online. We will also be using Google search regularly and will be learning how to use procedures in coding.
Handwriting: We are now encouraging the children to use cursive (joined) handwriting which we will be practicing as a part of our broad and balanced curriculum. We thank you in advance for your support with this in homework activities where appropriate.
Indoor = Dance
Outdoor = Cricket skills
Music: Ukulele. Below is the link to the backing tracks that the children have been using in lesson, remember to practice at home to build up your skills!
