Welcome to Class 4’s Tremors
This term we will be looking the mighty and overwhelming energies of Mother Nature’s roar deep within the earth. Over the term the children will be learning about the movement of tectonic plates, what happens when a volcano erupts, mud slides and the formation of different types of rocks? After half term we will be discovering the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse into their savage and deadly effects. We will be going back in time, visiting the ancient city of historical Pompeii, frozen in time.
In Maths, we will continue to revise the four main operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) as well as looking a shape, graphs and statistics. The children will spend time on TT Rock stars and Reflex maths both of which can be accessed at home.
In literacy, we will be writing a recount from our educational visit, an historical narrative related to the volcanic eruption in Pompeii and a newspaper report. Please encourage your child to share what they have been learning about in class and to do their own research at home.
I hope you are all as excited for this topic as I am and thank you all for your support and hard work thus far.
Kind regards, Miss Cooke.
