This week the children will create their own adventure inspired by the expeditions they have been researching. The children will decide their own setting and characters for their adventure and what dangers they may face. They will continue to focus on how to create suspense using detailed descriptions and imagery.
This week the focus will be on shape and space. The children will complete investigative tasks, designed to consolidate and extend their understanding of all the concepts covered so far in Year 4. They will work with the properties of 2D shapes, review angles, explore symmetry and revisit coordinates, plotting shapes on a grid. A good command of technical vocabulary will be required as the children will be expected to explain their findings.
Children will be continuing with their projects this week in preparation for their showcase day. They will begin to put together the research and data they have collated over the last couple of weeks. In addition they will also add any useful information that they gathered from their trip to Maritime Museum.

They will learn about insulation and energy transference. This week they will be asked the question: “If you put a jacket on a snowman, what will happen? “
The children will be learning how to make positive choices. They will be working in small groups to complete a number of challenges that test their ability to work effectively in a team.

Alle leerlingen van KS2 zijn keihard aan het werk aan de ‘Hoe-overleef-ik-Azië-gids,’ zodat ook u hem van de zomer mee kunt nemen op uw Aziëavontuur! De oriënterende fase is voorbij en alle leerlingen zijn hard bezig met hun onderzoek. Vooral het opstellen van goede onderzoeksvragen en het vinden van informatie op internet staat deze week centraal. De leerlingen komen er snel achter dat niet alle informatie van internet bruikbaar is.
Spelling ‘Laat Zien’ is rondgemaild aan alle ouders van KS2. De leerlingen kennen het als het kaartjesspel van spelling wat we in de klas spelen. Dit spel is een goede voorbereiding op de aanstaande Cito-toetsen omdat het de leerlingen wijst op de verschillende categorieën en woordproblemen. Het draagt daardoor bij aan het woordbeeld en aan het spellingsbewustwordingsproces.
