Welcome to Year 3/4!

Key information:

– Class Teacher is Mr Cullen

– P.E. is on a Wednesday (indoor) and a Friday (outdoor) during Spring 1

– Reading diaries need to be in daily and children should have read at least five times by FridayDuring Spring 1, in mathematics we will be continuing with multiplication and division. This might include use of column method, times-table learning, number factors, bus-stop method and scaling. During our English lessons, we are using ‘The Lighthouse’ clip to support our setting descriptions and our diary entries. Before moving onto our class text ‘The Nothing to See Here Hotel’. Hopefully, we’ll be able to squeeze some limericks in before the end of Spring 1 too. In Spanish, we’ll be exploring numbers, days of the week and where do I live. In science, we’ll be looking at rocks and soils; including identifying rocks, describing how mountains are formed, what soil is made of and classifying weathering. In geography, we are learning about rainforests. Where they are, the features of a rainforest and the problems they are facing. We are continuing our study of the Sikh religion this half-term because the children were really starting to make progress before Christmas. In ICT on Wednesdays, the children will be using the devices to handle data. Our ukuleles have arrived and after some composition lessons with Mrs Bassindale we’re excited to start using them. Our artwork will focus on artists and developing the children’s ability to analyse, unpick and understand works of art, using inference to suggest what different subjects may be thinking or feeling and predicting what might be happening in a scene and would could happen next. They also have the opportunity to create their own photo collages and abstract art inspired by the work explored. In PSHE we will be looking at , health and well-being, changing rules, anti-social behaviour, responsibilities, agreeing and disagreeing and the idea of community. And finally we’ll be keeping as active and limber as we can through our gymnastics sessions and our High Five Netball.
