This term in Harbour Class...
We’ve had a brilliant start to 2018 in Year 4. The class have returned to school with an impressively mature attitude towards their learning. We are continuing our morning routine of philosophical thinking and waking and shaking our bodies during the popular morning exercise activities.
Many children have returned to school excited to begin our topic ‘Hello! ¡Hola!’- a study of cultural and geographical similarities and differences between Barcelona and Brighton & Hove. They have already enjoyed sketching some of their favourite landmarks within their own city and are looking forward to our next week’s ‘Trip to Barcelona’ which will mark the Stunning Start of our topic!
This term, Soundmakers, from the Brighton & Hove Music service, will be giving the children weekly Ukulele lessons. Children will also be able to bring their ukuleles home to show off the marvellous musicality they are developing! The lessons will culminate in a performance, which you are all warmly invited to.
In literacy this term, we will be focusing on explanation texts and persuasive writing. Children will write information pages and holiday advertisements based on their topic learning.
In science we will be learning about electricity. What creates it, how it is used and how to construct simple circuits.
