Turtles (Year 4 AS)

September 2020

Welcome back Turtles!

We are so pleased to see you all back in school and ready for an exciting year of learning, fun and friendship.  This half-term our topic is Secrets of the Samba. Using the texts: The Great Kapok Tree and Journey to the River Sea, we will be exploring the dramatic landscape of the Amazon rainforest, creating setting descriptions and stories with a dilemma.  We will be using our knowledge of plants and animals to classify woodland creatures and animals from the rainforest.  Also in Science we will be investigating the water cycle.  In Maths, our focus will be on place value, addition and subtraction.
