Class 4's Topic Page

Summer Term - Topic 2

Our new topic is...

Animals, including humans

During Sports Week, we will be learning all about the digestive system and our teeth.

As scientists we will:

  • describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans
  • identify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions
  • construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey


We will be continuing with our writing unit based on the book 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. We will be writing an invention narrative and a biography.  


Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be looking at decimals and money.

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 Summer 1.
