Welcome to the
Snow Leopard Class webpage...
For 2017-18, Snow Leopard Class is a Year Four class. We follow a three year rolling programme of learning that enables us to ensure that children do not unnecessarily encounter the same learning twice, whilst ensuring that the knowledge and skills for each subject are taught. The children’s own interests are incorporated within our themes, thus making their learning more personal and relevant.
As our Year Four children are the oldest in the school, they have the opportunity to take on more responsibilities to help our school run smoothly.
Monday 23rd April - Friday 27th April
Our focus in English is recount writing. We are linking this to our RE learning about Buddhism. We are finding out about the life of Buddha while working together to create our own verbal recount of his life using picture cues. We are then using this verbal recount to create our own written recount. We are also learning to identify the present perfect tense.
Our focus this week is on time. We are learning how to tell the time using clock faces (numbers and Roman numerals) and digital times. We are also learning to use am/pm and 24 hour times. We are then putting these skills together to help us work out durations of time.
What are we learning this half-term?
