E-Safety week June 2018
This half term
For the whole of our Summer term, our topic is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
In English, we will begin by writing an explanation text explaining the process of food moving through the digestive system.
Furthermore, in Reading and English, we will be reading/linking our learning to the story ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope.’ This story is about the Brownstone Vault and what is found inside. Some of the items link to the Vikings – our topic.We will be furthering our learning by reading this story and writing short narratives, developing our language, exploring poetry and participating in discussion and debates.
As part of our Anglo Saxon and Viking topic, we will focus on Vikings for the rest of the summer term. We will be looking at how they raided and invaded Britain, the Viking way of life – how they lived, cooked, cleaned, the jobs they did, what they believed in and much more. We will also be looking at Anglo-Saxons Kings and the different laws and ways of justice they had in place.
In RE, our big question is ‘Why do some people think life is a journey?’ where we will explore different milestones in our lives and the symbolism this has on us. We will learn about different religions and the various religious events that occur in an individual’s life. Children will think about their own goals, milestones and important events that are symbolic to them.
In Maths, we will be learning to tell the time accurately and convert 12 and 24 hour clocks. We will be completing a range of problems involving time and relating it to real-life problems. Furthermore, we will be learning about ‘Statistics’ and how to interpret and present data in different ways such as bar charts, pictograms and tables. Finally, Year 4 will be learning all about properties of shapes (quadrilaterals and triangles), angles (obtuse, acute and right angle) and plotting/translating coordinates on a grid.
