Year 3 & 4

Welcome to our learning in Year 3 & 4 - Spring 2


Welcome back for the Spring term!  It’s so lovely to have the lighter mornings and evenings; hopefully the weather will improve soon…

This term in Year 3 and 4, our topic is Tomb Raiders, and we will be learning all about the Egyptians.  We will be learning about mummification, and will mummify our own apples!  In Art, we will be designing and making our own Egyptian headdresses.  We will also be writing our names using hieroglyphics.

For Literacy, we will be reading The Egyptian Cinderella, by Shirley Climo, and writing our own fairytales using this story as a starting point.  This activity will tie in nicely with our RE learning, in which we will be looking at creation stories from all different religions, and writing our own.  We will also be looking at the story of Howard Carter and the excavation of King Tut’s tomb, and writing our own journals based around this event.

In Numeracy we will begin by looking at fractions and the four operations, and also at co-ordinates -  we will be playing games of Battleships in pairs!  In Science, we will be looking at plants, and will dissect and label daffodils.  We will also be planting daffodils, which we will then deprive of certain variable – ie. Light, water, etc – and observe how this makes the plants differ as they grow.

 PE will be circuit training and ball skills ready for tennis later in the year – as well as swimming for the two classes who haven’t yet been, and the weekly run in the Pleasaunce.  In ICT, we will be learning how to use StoryJumper to create our own books.
