Autumn Term Curriculum Letter

September 2018 - Hindu Workshop

Year 4 have enjoyed working with Sunita Patell who is a practising Hindu and who has spent the day sharing information about her faith. The children have learnt some basic Indian vocabulary; created rangoli designs; listened to several stories which helped them learn about Hindu Gods as well as having a go at some Bangra dancing in costume!

September 2018 - Science

The class have been learning about light. We have learnt how light travels, how light helps us to see and the best materials to reflect light as well as gaining an understanding of the terms, transparent, translucent and opaque. To put some of this knowledge and understanding into practice, we constructed a set of periscopes and used them to 'spy' on the Y5 and Y6 classes!

September 2018 - P.E  

New term and new P.E focus. This term the theme is 'Invasion Games' and during this first half term we will be focusing on the skills required within the game of hockey.  In particular, the key skills we will thinking about are: I can move in and out of spaces based on verbal communication; I can change direction and increase speed to avoid an opponent; I can receive, travel and then send an object whilst retaing possession; I can successfully receive and control a ball that is moving directly towards me; I can exploit space by passing, dribbling or running with the ball; I keep possession of a ball (hockey stick).

September 2018 - Art

We  carrid out some research on the artist L.S.Lowry whose work we are studying and using as a stimulus this term. We found out a little about the man himself and then compared two of his paintings, recording our likes and dislikes about the particular images. Later in the term, we will have a go at creating our own interpretation of his painting, "Daisy Nook Fair".

September 2018 - Maths

In maths, the focus is on number and place value. We have looked at counting in multiples of 25 and 100 and how efficient this method would be when faced with counting large quantities of objects.

September 2018 - Circle Time

In circle time we spent time getting to know each other through lots of fun activities. In addition, we did some team building activities and finished with a discussion on the various skills needed to complete the tasks successfully. This was useful as we linked this to our understanding of Growth Mindset and our school values. Great work Team Salisbury.
