Woolsthorpe (Yr 4)
Woolsthorpe class is taught by Mrs Dyer and supported by Mrs Fowler in the mornings and Mrs Evans on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
Our new theme for the Summer Terms is 'Gums to Bums', which always proves a very popular unit with our Year 4 pupils!
There will be lots of messy Science investigations as we explore the function of our teeth and how our digestive system works. We will also be looking at animal food webs and working out what Ollie the Owl has been having trouble digesting ......
In Maths, we will be exploring division as well as lots of practical investigations to understand different units of measure and why we need them in the real world. We will also be developing our skills at solving 1 and 2 step problems by applying all our Maths knowledge gained over the year.
Our new class novel will be David Walliam's Demon Dentist and will serve to stimulate lots of ideas for our English writing skills, including how to write and perform a theatre sketch. We will then be moving onto the fabulous novel Wonder by RJ Palacio to explore themes of fitting in, friendship and resilience as we develop our narrative skills. The last term will also be a chance for the children to become biographers as they choose a famous person and get ready for our Woolsthorpe Living Wax Museum event.
