Year 3 & 4

Welcome to our learning in Year 3 & 4 - Autumn 1

 

Welcome back for a new school year, and welcome into Key Stage 2 for everyone who’s just moved up into Year 3.

This term on the middle floor our topic is Danger Zone, and we will be looking at the natural world and at natural disasters. 

This topic will feature lots of science; we will be looking at rocks and soils and trying to discover their properties, and will also tie into history when we learn about Pangea and continental drift – finding out about earthquakes and how the moving plates of the earth cause them.  We will also be learning about tornadoes, tsunamis, and volcanoes, and what causes these.

In Literacy, we have been looking at poetry, and reading different types of poems; we will also be writing our own poetry.  We have particularly enjoyed watching Michael Rosen perform his hilarious Chocolate Cake.

For PE, like the rest of Key Stage 2, we will be doing circuit training, as well as swimming and the weekly run in the Pleasaunce.

Later in the term, we have a trip to the Natural History Museum which will tie into the topic and where we will have the opportunity to explore the museum as well as participating in a show called Earthquakes, Emergencies and Volcanoes.
