Class 4's Topic Page

Autumn Term- Topic 2

Our current topic is...

Habitats

As scientists we will look at:

Living things and their habitats

 

Focusing on-

  • recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways 

 

  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment 

 

  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things

English

We will be continuing with our writing unit based on the book 'Leaf' by Sandra Dieckmann. We will be writing an outsider narrative and an information report.  

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be looking at Number: Place Value.

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we also ask each child to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs as part of their homework. Please work on the KIRFs for Spring 1.
