We have had a lovely week back and have been incredibly impressed with the children’s dedication to their learning. We have been spotting the school values everywhere! In English, we have been looking at poetry. In Maths, we have been recapping perimeter and area. We have also launched our new topic: Biomes. The knowledge map for our new topic can be found here: Y4 Sp2 Biomes Knowledge Map

In Art we began exploring our biome topic. We were looking at different plants in the rainforest, focusing on their shape and composition. We started by exploring these features in different medias, we then created our own plant inspired stamps – we are excited to use these next week!

 

This term we are lucky to have a specialist cricket coach teaching us. The children had there first lesson this week and it was great to see them applying the skills we have previously been learning.
