This week we will be exploring the wonderful world of the ‘prefix’. We will recap some spelling patterns from year 3 and then explore the ‘in’ prefix. Here are our spelling words for this week.
Take a look at these video lessons to help you to understand what a prefix is and their meanings.
In English this week we will be writing our own recount texts. We will be using a boxing up grid to plan our recount. Use this grid to help you with your plan –
This week we continue to explore forces. We will be learning about friction and how this can effect the speed of a moving object. We will be setting up an investigation to see how different surfaces effect the speed of a toy car.
Learn about friction here –
This week we will be reminding ourselves of the 4 different countries that make up the United Kingdom. Watch this short video lesson to remind you – https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-the-united-kingdom/zhtgrj6
We will then be learning about the counties in the U.K – we will be asking, what is a county? and which county do we live in?
Listen to this fab song to learn the different names of the counties – how many can you remember?
