Summer 2

Our topics for this half term will be:

     Why are the Wolves in the Walls?    

and 

Why were the Norman Castles not Bouncy?  

 

Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6

Why are there wolves in the walls?

Where do the wolves live?

 

 

 

Can we write a sequel based upon this book?  Who was William the Conqueror? 

Why did the Normans build so many castles? 

Can you build a trebuchet to capture a castle? 

 

 

 

 

  Numeracy

In Numeracy the children will develop their understanding of time and learn to tell the time on analogue and digital clocks to the nearest minute. They will use the 24 hour clock to calculate intervals of time and read timetables. They will use data to create a variety of graphs and interpret them carefully. The children will learn how to find points on a grid using co-ordinates and draw polygons and translate shapes. They will develop their knowledge of the properties of shapes and angles. 

In addition, they will answer word problems with more than one step and practise times tables to improve their recall of multiplication facts. 

 

      Literacy

In Literacy, much of our work will be based around "The Wolves in the Walls" by Neil Gaiman. The children will be able to use their skills to create text to add to the illustrations and use a different point of view to re-write the story. They will also create a sequel, using the original as a template. 

They will continue to improve their use of formal language when writing formal reports in Science and History lessons. We will also consolidate our understanding of the key areas of grammar and punctuation for Year 4 - apostrophes, the writing of speech and fronted adverbials to begin sentences

 

  Science

In Science we will learn about how different animals have adapted to their habitat and environment. We will create a wormery and use the outside area for field-work. We will learn about the food chain and to use the Scientific vocabulary in our explanations. On an educational visit to Conkers Discovery Centre, we will look at different habitats and explore river creatures in our pond-dipping activity.
