Ketton C of E Primary School

Term 4

Term 4!

Our theme for this term is


Jungle Rock!


In Science, we will be answering the question, Are all animals the same? We will begin our unit identifying and naming common animals and then move on to learn how scientists classify and sort animals into groups. We will then look at different animal diets. Through the term, we will also continue to observe and describe the seasonal changes as we move towards Spring.


Our work in English will be inspired by the book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak. We will read how Max goes on a magical adventure to a strange but exciting land where he meets the Wild Things! Once we have fully explored the text we will plan and write our own version of a portal narrative. Throughout the unit we will consolidate our understanding of how to write exciting sentences and build on our knowledge of spelling conventions.


In Maths, we will continue learning about place value, moving on to numbers up to 50. We will then begin to learn how we measure length and height and mass and capacity.


In RE, our enquiry question is, Why does Easter matter to Christians? We will be thinking about the period of Lent and look at the different parts of the Easter story.


In IT we will be developing our understanding of computer programming using our floor robots. We will learn how to use the command buttons to move a robot in different directions and then how we can create a simple sequence of commands to make the robot follow a more complex route.


In Music we will be learning about tempo and rhythm. We will learn how to recognise short and long sounds and identify and clap the pulse of a piece of music. We will copy simple patterns of long and short sounds on instruments and learn how these can be recorded as symbols.


In Enrichment this term, we will be exploring Henri Rousseau’s

Tiger in a tropical storm’!


In Term 4, PE days will remain on a Wednesday and Friday. On a Wednesday, the Owls will take part in multi-skills activities with Mr Aust. On a Friday, we are very excited to be continuing to develop our dance skills with Rutland Dance. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days. Remember to make sure that you have warm clothing as whenever possible, our Wednesday lesson will take place outside.
