Ladygrove Primary School

Welcome to Class 4

In Class 4 we love learning and having fun! 

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise!

This half term our topic is Enchanted Woodland. We’ll visit a woodland, observe the wildlife, collect natural objects and take beautiful pictures of the things we see. After our woodland adventure, we’ll write about our experiences and learn all about trees. We’ll use information books to investigate woodland creatures and make mini-books of our own. Throughout the project, we will find out how to recognise different plants and animals and create detailed, observational drawings of them. The tale of Hansel and Gretel will inspire us to write our own stories with a woodland theme. We’ll build miniature dens, create woodland works of art and construct mini-woodlands from twigs, sticks, pine cones and leaves. At the end of our project, we’ll have so much to share with you. Why not take a woodland walk and see which plants and creatures you can find? Alternatively, visit the local library and borrow information and storybooks about woodland creatures to read together. You could also collect twigs, leaves, seed cases and flowers to make natural art together outside.

In English this half term we will be working on forming sentences and punctuating them correctly using full stops and capital letters. We will also be teaching the children how to use phoneme mats to help with spelling and will focus on presentation and handwriting. All of these skills will be taught using fun and engaging stories such as Hansel and Gretel, The Three Little Pigs and Woodland Creatures information texts. 

In Maths we are focusing on numbers to 20. We will work on number formation, counting, ordering,comparing numbers using symbols and the use of ordinal numbers. We will also be adding 2 numbers,using objects to help.

Our Science topic is 'Animal Antics' and will involve us creating a home for our pet snail, learning about how to look after cats and dogs and investigating which birds visit our school grounds. 

This half term we would like the children to read at least 3 times a week as their homework. 

We would also like them to practise their letter formation to help with writing sessions.
