YEAR 4

This Week:

It’s Getting Hot in Here!

This half-term, we will be exploring the Rainforest. This will link in with our Science topic of ‘Helping the Habitats’ as well as explanation texts in English where we will be designing a leaflet to make people more aware of the impact that humans have on their environment, both positive and negative.

In English we wrote our explanation texts using our plans.  We have also been looking at different forms of poetry and have written our own Kennings poems.

In Maths we have been multiplying by 10 and 100 and using our knowledge to solve problems.

As one of the English objectives is performance poetry, we would like you to do some research (If you are going on the internet, remember to get permission from a parent/carer) and find a short poem that you will need to perform for the class.

Things to think about:

  • Try to pick a poem that means something to you or you could think about an experience you’ve had and try to pick a poem with the same topic as this will help you when learning the words.
  • Ideally, you will learn your poem off by heart so think about the length of your chosen poem making sure it’s not too long.
  • Start to think about what you can do to make your performance as entertaining as possible.

Remember practise makes perfect! We look forward to watching all of your performances!
