Welcome to Class 4
Class 4 had a fantastic time getting ready for the Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show at Tatton Park. They planned, designed, planted and grew their garden around the theme of Vincent Van Gogh.
And.... the good news is...
St James' were awarded the best primary school garden and also earned second place in the People's Choice Vote.
We are very proud of everyone involved.
This half term's topic is:
Be Active, be healthy
We are really looking forward to learning about how to keep ourselves fit and healthy through diet and exercise.
In English, our book of focus is Eliot Jones, Midnight Superhero. We will be planning and writing our own short story, a newspaper article and an end of year poem. We continue to build upon our comprehension. grammar and punctuation skills.
In mathematics, we will be cementing our knowledge on short division, four digit addition and subtraction, using the formal written methods. We will be looking at fractions and decimals in more detail. We will learn to apply this knowledge to word problems.
In Science, we will be looking at the digestive system. Later on in the term, we will focus on food chains; identifying producers, predators and prey.
