4I - Ingleton

Summer 1 

 

Finally, the weather is looking up and just in time for our pond life topic! We are going on our pond dipping trip and this will help support our science focus on living things and their habitats. In English we will be producing chronological reports based on animals living in and around ponds. Our Art focus will be based on pond life and creating 3D sculptures using wire and music will be based around relaxation music; a great link to our Y4 yoga focus! 

We made fantastic wire minibeasts from wire

Spring term 2

 

This term our focus is based around the water cycle. This will link with our science topic and writing an explanation text in English. The children will design and build their own bridges in DT and of course we will have the chicks to look after! Maths will have a focus around fractions and decimals.
