Spring 2 IPC PROJECT: Continuing with Space explorers

  • SCIENCE

    We will be able to:

    • Research questions about our solar system and record our findings.

    We will know:

    • How the solar system is arranged; how we get day and night; how we get our seasons.

    We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  The relative size and distance of planets.
  • HISTORY

    We will understand:

    •  How scientists such as Galileo proved that the Earth orbits the Sun

    We will know:

    • How space exploration has evolved over time through the development of ever more sophisticated technology.
  • KEY VOCABULARY

    orbit   rocket    ISS     gravity   forces   space   astronaut   solar system   spherical  planet  rotate  constellation    Earth   axis

  • SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS

    TWITTER is very useful – follow @Space_Station or @NASAEarth or @NASA_astronauts.

    Apps are also helpful – Star Walk and Sky Map are the apps we will use in school.

  • 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 shapes

    And much more!    

  • English

    We will be learning how to write: Biography and Narrative

    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.

Swimming

Phoenix Two will go swimming to Brentford Leisure Centre on Tuesday afternoons with their class teacher and three other members of staff. Their first lesson is on Tuesday 8th January 2019.

They will all have approximately one hour in the water each week for the whole term (until  5thApril 2019). 

For these lessons, children will need to bring a swimsuit or swimming trunks (not baggy shorts), swimming cap, towel and if they would like – goggles. Jewellery (watches, earrings, necklaces etc) must not be worn. Children must not come to school in their swimsuits.

Every child must swim as this is part of the statutory National Curriculum. 

If you would like further information about these swimming lessons, please contact your class teacher or the office team. 

Things to remember
