This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.

This is what is happening in term 4

Welcome to Term 4! This will be another busy term.

This term, Hawks will be learning about rainforests. We will cover geographical aspects such as location, climate and layers of rainforests, as well as the impact of deforestation.

Our class texts will be ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell and ‘Where on Earth? Rainforests’ by Susie Brooks. We will also be looking at a poem, ‘Rain Forest’ which is courtesy of songs4teachers, in association with Friends of the Earth. Throughout the term, these will all act as inspiration for descriptive writing, drama and debate.

Science learning runs alongside this topic beautifully as we will be studying living things and their habitats. During outdoor learning investigations, the children will use classification keys and consider local environmental changes that are detrimental to wildlife.

Mathematical learning this term will be fractions and decimals. Practical activities such as using natural materials outdoors, as well as cutting up and sharing pancakes indoors will provide a variety of scaffolding for enjoyable fractions learning!

The PSHE learning question this term will be: How will we grow and change? This is as per the PSHE Curriculum and will include a gentle age-appropriate introduction to puberty.

Mr Hayes will cover class teaching on Thursdays again this term. I will be teaching badminton and tennis and Mr Hayes will be teaching a variety of invasion sports. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays as usual.

As always, please come and see me if you have any worries or concerns or if you just want to pop in and say hello!

Kind regards,

Mrs Kennett.

Hawks Teacher.
