Year 3 & 4

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

 

 

Welcome back to the darker half of the winter term… not long now until Christmas!

Our topic this term is Feel the Forces, which is both a Science topic (we will be looking at forces such as friction, gravity and magnetism, and performing lots of experiments), and also a tie-in with our previous topic as we will be looking at the forces of good and evil.  We will also be going on a trip to the Science Museum where we will look at space and gravity.

Christmas play rehearsals have already begun; this year we will be performing a play about heroes and villains!

Swimming lessons will be continuing as PE, and we will also carry on with our weekly run in the Pleasaunce.  PE this term will also be netball.

In Literacy, we are currently writing our own winter poems; after this we will be looking at Varjak Paw, by S F Said, and will create our own pieces of suspense writing as the cat in the city.  This ties in with our Geography this terms, in which we will learn about capital cities.

For Numeracy this term we will be doing a lot of work around fractions.  This week we have been looking at Furbles, which are creatures of different shapes and colours and from which we have been able to create data – ie 2 red triangles out of 10 Furbles – and find equivalent fractions – 1/5.
