Yr 4 Mr Paine
Our topic for spring term 2 is ‘And The Beat Goes On’. Unsurprisingly, this will have a strong music focus, where year 4 will learn the basics of musical notation and get a chance to compose and perform their own pieces. In DT, we will be making our own instruments, and the children will be able to use a computer programme to create more compositions. Running alongside this topic, we will be studying poetry, giving the children a fantastic opportunity to experience the more artistic side of literacy. Our guided reading will complement our history sessions to give us an understanding of how music has changed, as well as a chance to listen to and learn about a breadth of music styles and talented musicians throughout time.
Information about other aspects of our learning can be found on our Knowledge Organiser.
Our library time will continue on Mondays after break and will allow us time to quiz and change reading books for the coming week. Children also have the opportunity to change their books before registration each morning if they need to and are encouraged to take books home and enjoy them whenever they can in their own time. Parents are encouraged to read with their children and leave comments in their reading records.
