IPC PROJECT FOR Summer 2 2017: Being Human Humans and other animals

The Big Idea

Your body is designed to help you to breathe, move, eat, respond, reproduce and live. But how do the different parts of your body function and how are humans different from other animals? Let's find out.

  • In Science, we will be finding out::
    • How humans are different from other animals
    • About the brain and the nervous system
    • About the bones and muscles in the body
    • How the human heart works
    • How we breathe and what the lungs do
    • What we inherit from our parents
    • How our environment affects us
    • How the body uses food and water
    • About the latest medical research
  • In TECHNOLOGY, we will be finding out:
    • How to plan and prepare a healthy meal
  • In International, we will be finding out:
    • About a major global health problem
    • If we can improve the health of the world's children
  • Maths and English

    Maths

    Please help your child to know all of the times tables facts up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts.

    This is incredibly important and is actually a Year 4 objective.

    We will also be working hard to remember how to:

    •  Find fractions of quantities and read scales.

    English

    We will be learning how to write: Biographies, diaries and information leaflets.

    We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: spelling rules involving suffixes and prefixes, and adverbial phrases showing time, manner and place.

  • Important dates;

    Wednesday 19th July : Leaver assembly @2.00pm

    Thursday 20th July - Whole School Exit point

    What better way to end the year than with a whole school celebration?!

    We hope every child from Nursery to Year 6 will bring in a plate of something homemade and scrumptious. At 9.30am, children will begin the festivities and enjoy tasting food from all over the world, present day and past.
