Year 3 & 4

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

 

Happy New Year and welcome back to all!

This term on the middle floor our topic is Savage Stone Age, and we will be leaning lots about life in the Stone Age, as well as the Iron Age and Bronze Age.

We will be reading Stone Age Boy, by Satoshi Kitamura, and for Literacy will create our own play scripts based around this story.

In Art, we will be creating stone age art using authentic paints – we will make these using such things as berries, mud, and flour.  We will also be melting chocolate in Science, where we will be looking at evaporation.

Later in the term, we will be going on a trip to a museum, where we will learn about the Stone Age in a hands-on  way.

In PE, we will continue with our weekly run, as well as swimming, and will also be playing hockey and learning gymnastics.

RS this term will focus on Buddhism; we will learn all about the Chinese New Year and how this is celebrated across the world, and will also be learning about yin and yang and what this means and symbolises.
