During our ‘Seaside’ Learning Journey we will write postcards and read and recall information about seaside holidays in Victorian times. We will also have a focus on Summer and extending our vocabulary by using words to describe Summer and creating mind maps about Summer.
Letters and Sounds moves on to looking at how the basic sounds we have learnt can be spelt differently in some words- tricky stuff! All Year 1 pupils will complete the phonics screening check during the week beginning 11th June.
We will compare, describe and solve practical problems for length and height, mass and weight, capacity and volume and time. We will measure and begin to record these. We will continue to develop our skills in addition and subtraction as well as solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher. We will read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words. We will describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns.
Learning Journey (cross curricular subjects)
Our Learning Journey theme for the term is ‘The Seaside’. This will cover the subjects of English, Geography, History and Art. Through our Learning Journey the children will find out about seaside holidays in Victorian times, draw maps and sketch seaside artefacts. Our Science topic explores the season of Summer and summarises the key features of each season of the year. Computing will focus on creating e-cards. Our PA theme is team games. We will be going outside for PA so your child needs to have a full kit including plimsolls in school please. Through PSHE we will focus on changes. Please could your child bring a photograph of themselves as a baby into school by Friday 15th June.
Continue reading daily and practising reading and spelling your word lists.

It may sound disgusting, but the children recreated 'Poos from the past' specifically including the diet of the Egyptians and Aztecs. We made these poos and later pretended to be archaeologists, taking it carefully apart to identify the diet of this civilization. A truly messy experiment but it lots of fun! We also rolled tins done an alley and bottles to discover which would roll further. Does weight effect gravity? We found the bottle full of cotton wool and the bottle with only half filled with sand didn't roll very far. However the frozen water bottle and original full water bottle rolled the furthest. Year 4 certainly did enjoy SCIENCE WEEK!!!
All the children performed brilliantly in our end of term show. With some wonderful songs, dances, even solo performances and supported with wonderful acting. The children certainly did themselves proud!
