LKS2: Scafell Pike

Year 4 – Scafell Pike

Welcome to Scafell Pike. Our teacher is Miss Palin.

Burps, Bottoms and Bile

Open wide – let’s take a look inside. We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? We will be testing the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body. 

We are starting our topic off with a Virtual Memorable Experience from a dentist, who is going to talk all about our teeth, different dental procedures and explain why it is so important to brush our teeth every day.  

We will be exploring David Walliam’s exciting text ‘Demon Dentist’ for our Demonstration Reading text, and will be looking at all the exciting language – including identifying some nonsense words! 

We will be using the Writing Rainbow to enhance our writing using Jane Considine’s ‘The Write Stuff’, and will once again be zooming in and out on a variety of exciting lenses to develop sentence skills. This will be based initially on a visual text ‘Feast’, which links well with our topic. 

To aid fluency and comprehension in reading we are continuing to use Hooked on Books, which has helped the children to really immerse themselves in the text and come up with really thoughtful and in-depth answers as to particular language choices made by the author.  

For PE this term we are doing Tennis and Yoga to make sure we are keeping fit and healthy! Our PE days will remain the same, and children will please need to come in their PE kits on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s.  

Homework will be uploaded onto Satchel One every week. Remember you can bring your homework into school each Friday to show off your hard work and share your home achievements. We love seeing how hard you are working at home!
