Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Term 5

It’s the start of the summer, it’s Term 5! It’s such a short term but I can guarantee learning time will be filled to the brim day after day. This term we are going on our residential trip to Hilltop (3rd – 5th May) and we will be visiting Forest School on Thursday 18th May in the afternoon. Yoga returns with Mrs Evans so we are really looking forward to that.

Our Topic is ‘Rain, rain go away’ and there are so many opportunities across our curriculum to immerse ourselves in this meteorological learning! In Computing, we will become experts in presenting the weather – learning all of the skills required in order to do that successfully. In Science, we will be learning about States and specifically the Water Cycle. Our Village will feature again when ‘Storm Doris’ causes chaos for our Target lessons. Maths of course is a great opportunity to talk about measurement of temperatures, counting backwards through zero and reading weather charts.


Class 4 learning for Term 5 also includes:

  • Literacy – we will be learning to write persuasively which will include a class debate and a persuasive letter linked to our Hilltop experience.
  • PE – we will become Athletes for the term every Thursday and on Fridays we will be going Swimming so please remember your kit
  • L2l – our focus is on being resourceful learners.

This terms our focus for Independent Learner of the week is being resourceful learners and the children are already engaged and up for the challenge!


We are looking forward to another exciting and rewarding term!



Mrs Young, Mrs Mould and the Year 4 team.
