Yr 4 Mr Paine
Our topic for autumn term 2 is ‘Misty Mountains’. During these sessions, we will be finding out what mountains are from a geographical perspective, and locating and comparing the different mountain ranges around the globe. Science will focus on states of matter: particularly how water changes states as it goes through the water cycle, and why it snows upon mountains. In our literacy, we will read, ‘When the Mountains Roared’ by Jess Butterworth, writing a diary entry from the main character and a new chapter from the perspective of another character. We will look at key events in mountain exploration for history and in art explore perspective in landscape drawings. Further activities will be completed in music, history and ICT, all of which can be found on the Topic Overview sheet on the Year 4 class door.
Our library time will remain 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.
