Class 4 Term 1 Newsletter
This term our imaginative learning project is called ‘Predators’. Over the term we will be looking at a variety of predatory creatures both on land and under the sea. The children will be learning about the dietary requirements of predators and consumers and how they are all part of different food chains. During the second half term the children will be learning about what makes an animal a predator and how they survive in their differing habitats. There will also be opportunities for the children to create their very own ultimate predator and explore their own areas of interest linked to the topic.
We will be following the Rotherham Agreed Syllabus for R.E. and this half term will be focussing on:
Every Wednesday afternoon the children also take part in a Class assembly where extracts of the Bible are shared and reflected on, giving the children the chance to discuss their ideas and think deeper about some of the questions raised.
