Respect, Learning, Kindness, Friendship, Trust


Welcome to P4a with Ms McCann.

Summary of Learning

We are currently reading The Folk of the Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

In Term 4 we are learning about the Solar System.  We are finding out about the Sun, Moon, Earth and Stars and how time, days and years are related to these things.  We are also going to learn about the planets in the solar system –  their size, features, number of moons.  We will also investigate space travel and scientific developments in this field.

In language we are focussing on fiction reading.  As a class we are continuing reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney and completing tasks based on this book.  We will  be investigating poetry and writing our own poems.  We are also enjoying reading cafes where we have the chance to read and discuss books.

In Maths, we are learning to divide larger numbers using the ‘step’ method as well as learning about data handling and weight, volume and length.

All children – remember to practise times tables regularly.
