Class 4 2022 - 2023

Hello Class 4!

We are a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 group.

This half term, our Science topic is all about Materials. 

This half term, we will be focusing on science and materials; what are their properties and how do they change? Throughout this unit of work, we will be exploring why we choose particular materials for their roles and examine why? What is the meaning of terms such as absorbency, Thermal conductivity, and insulation? Are some processes reversible or not? Through investigations that must be fair and comparative, we will be making predictions and focussing on how to make conclusions about the evidence we have gathered. Please ensure your child is learning their Knowledge Organiser facts as there will be a regular quiz.

Please ensure you look out for the Materials Knowledge Organiser (downloadable here) in preparation for our knowledge mini quizes, continue reading your home readers or other books that you have at home and remember that you can use the Oxford Owl website for additional ebooks to read. This year will be activley encouraging you to read for pleasure at home and I look forward to seeing who will be our next reader of the week will be!

Remember home learning is always due back in on a Tuesday so it can be checked and sent back out to you each Thursday.

YEAR 6 - Remember to use the SATS booster zone at the top of the page to support your home learning each week.

Keep checking the website to find out more.
