Operation Gadgetman! by Malorie Blackman

Year 4 learning this term



In maths we will begin the term looking at some of the gaps from last year before moving on to place value, then addition and subtraction.



Our writing will be linked to our class book, 'Operation Gadgetman!' by Malorie Blackman.  We will be writing instructions linked to a recipe.  We will then move on to 2 recall units on play scrips and instructions before ending the term writing an adventure story.



During reading we will be working our way through our class book, 'Operation Gadgetman!' by Malorie Blackman.  The children will be interrogating the text using a variety of skills.  The children will be able to continue with their own reading and testing their understanding using Accelerated Reader.



In music we will be looking at classical music and Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.




We will be looking at welcome to school.





In art and design this term our topic will be painting.  We will be learning about abstract art and developing the skills of colour mixing including tertiary colours.




Our PSHE topic this term is 'Being Me in My World'.  Throughout this unit we will be learning about being part of a group and how to take care of each other.




The children will learn about beliefs and practices.  This will involve investigating two questions:

How special is the relationship that Jews have with God?

For Buddhists, is it possible for everyone to be happy?



In history this term the children will continue to learn about Roman times and think about the question 'Did the native Britons welcome or resist the Romans?'



In computing we will be looking at computer systems and networks and how computers are used for collaborative learning.  We will also be looking at online safety.



In science we will be looking at animals including humans.






In PE we will be doing dance, gymnastics and netball.
