Welcome to Lime Class

Summer Term

There are lots of exciting activites planned for Lime Class this term as well as Clarinets on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Flint, we'll also be having a Year 4 Clarinet concert on the 15th June for Year 4 parents. Our value this half term is Honesty. 

Maths

In Maths we will learn more about the 4 number operations and practise our mental maths methods, as well as looking at data collection, measures and problem solving. We will be focussing on rapid recall of the 6, 7 and 9 times tables. Place value will be studied and the ability to multiply and divide using formal methods. Knowledge of money and fractions will be developed. We will also look at angles and learn about interpreting graphs and presenting discrete and continuous data as well as revisit time.

Problem Solving in Maths

Music

 Some of the children from Lime Class have been lucky enough to be part of the Year 3 & 4 Rock band; they have rehearsals each week and will be putting on a ROCK concert later in the term and we'll also be putting on a Clarinet concert after half term for everyone to enjoy.

English

In English we are looking at explanation texts.  The children will be exploring the text features and the language used.  By the end of the topic they will be writing their own explanation texts. We will also be reading, writing and performing poetry. Grammar will continue to be taught and the children will develop their knowledge of punctuation, spelling, words types and sentence structure.

Science

Our topic this term is Circuits & Conductors. The children will learn all about where electricity comes from, how to keep safe and how to build a circuit using batteries, bulbs, wires and switches. In the final summer term we will be finding out all about sound. We will learn all about the ear, how we hear sounds and that sounds are made when objects vibrate.
