Welcome to Buzzard Class!
Buzzard Class is made up of 23 wonderful Year 4/5 children who are excellent role models and ambassadors to the school. The class is taught by Mr Chapman and Mrs Clements helps on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning.
Spring Term 2019
During Spring, we will be learning all about the British Isles. Our topic will be very geography-based, but we will also look at the history of the British Isles and key events in England's history. Similarly, we will be learning all about parliament, government and the monarchy.
In our English lessons, we are currently looking at persuasive writing. Using Leonardo Di Caprio's speech as a guide (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka6_3TJcCkA) the children will pick their own key issue and write and deliver a persuasive speech to Buzzard's United Nations.
In Maths, we are currently learning all about fractions. We have been following our new process of 'Concrete, pictorial and abstract' to show, draw and explain a range of mathematical concepts. We have recently added fractions, found equivalent fractions and converted improper fractions to mixed numbers.
In Science, we are learning all about space. The children have been learning all about the way the planets move and conducting experiments to show how far away the planets really are from each other. This is being completed alongside our computing topic 'We are video editors'. After a science lesson about space, the children are creating their own 'Space Explorer' videos which will teach younger children in the school all about space.
PE this half term is on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure that kits are in for these days please.
If you have any queries or questions, please book an appointment to meet Mr Chapman after school.
