Week Beginning 12 February 2018

School begins again on Monday 26th February – the Year 4 team hope you had a wonderful Chinese New Year holiday.


  • The Year 4 Showcase will take place 13th April at 9:00.


This week in Literacy, we will be looking at poetry and the different forms in which it comes. We will talk about whether or not poems have to rhyme and if they need to be particular lengths or not. The different forms of poetry which we will explore this week include Haikus, Clerihews and Kennings, all of which will allow us to be creative and potentially amusing when writing and will allow us to see a different side to poetry.


Poetry, poem, layout, style, Haiku, Kenning, Clerihew, creative, imagination


This week in maths we will be looking at measurement, in particular capacity and mass. The children will be estimating measurements, reading a range of scales and converting measurements. They will also be solving some weight and capacity related problems.


Measure, measurement, mass, scale, capacity, unit, convert


We’ll be starting our new topic after the holiday: Adventurers and Explorers! We’ll begin by researching some famous explorers, in particular Christopher Columbus. Towards the end of the week we’ll also be trying out a bit of exploring for ourselves!


Explore, exploration, adventure, discover


We will use our new topic of Explorers as a springboard to help us nagivate the internet when finding out information.


Search, explorer, research, fact, edit


This term our new PSHCE / well-being program will begin.  We are now looking at compassion and thinking about how we can understand the feelings of others.


Compassion, feelings, understand, help, friendship


De Cito is afgerond. We werken aan de nieuwe tekst van Nieuwsbegrip, lezen in Estafette en werken in de werkboeken van Staal.

Verder staat het volgende op het programma:

We gaan in alle groepen de dichtbundels afmaken!

In Year 3 zijn we begonnen met het maken van een gedicht over een fantasiedier! We hebben al een mindmap gemaakt en gaan deze week verder met het zoeken naar de mooiste woorden om ons fantasiedier te omschrijven in een gedicht. Ook gaan we een afbeelding van ons dier maken.

In Year 5 staat de limerick centraal. Het rijmschema van de limerick en het bijbehorende ritme waarin een limerick ook op muziek te gebruiken is, geven we veel aandacht en we maken zelf ook meerdere limericken op muziek.

In Year 4 werken we met elkaar aan een rap.  Daar gaan we deze week mee verder.

En in Year 6 maken we een portretgedicht van onszelf of de ander.
