Year 3/4 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Summer Term Year 3/4
What a wonderful start to our summer term. The sun has been shining and the children have come in with a great enthusiasm for their learning. We hope that both continue over the coming weeks. I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter break and didn’t eat to many chocolate eggs! We have lots of exciting challenges this term, and the following information outlines what your child will be learning.
Throughout this term we will be using Power Maths to focus on:
We will also continue to practice our fluency of timetables through Times Tables rock Stars, including the statutory Year 4 Maths Timetable Check assessment which will take place in June. The MTC's purpose is to ensure the times tables knowledge is at the expected level.
This term in English we will be using the inspiring book ‘Alba, The Hundred Year Old Fish’ written by Lara Hawthorne to fuel the environmentalists in us to write a non-chronological report based on the effect we are having on our Oceans. We will then challenge your child to become the next Shakespeare, through his play ‘Julius Caesar’ adapted in ‘ A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories’ by Angela McAllister. These will support us to build our skills in grammar, vocabulary, punctuation and composition.
Learning Adventure - Greece and Ancient Greece
In our Learning Adventure this term we will be diving into Modern and Ancient Greece. In geography, the children will be challenged to develop their map skills and explore its culture. In history they will discover its Empire, developing their skills in interpretation and analysis. Children will also build on their Art and Design skills through learning about Greek pottery and the food of Greece.
As budding scientists we will investigate how sounds are made and how this links with vibration. Our challenge will be to identify patterns between volume and the strength of the a vibration through scientific enquiry. We will build our skills in prediction, observation, interpretation and evaluation.
Our PE lesson are Wednesday and Friday every week. Please can PE kits be in school and labelled with your child’s name.
Homework will be set on Ed Shed, this will include spellings, maths and grammar. Homework will be set on Fridays and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday. There will also be Times Table Rock stars (TTRS), your child will have their own individual login for both Ed Shed and TTRS.
Please support the children to read their Accelerated Reader books for 20 minutes each day at home. Planners will be checked regularly and house points will be awarded to children who record what they have read in their planners.
