Year 3 & 4

Welcome to our learning in Year 3 & 4 - Spring 1 and 2


Welcome back to the middle floor – for 2020!

This term in Year 3 and 4 – and up until the Easter break – our topic is Wild Things and we have lots of exciting learning planned around this subject.

In Literacy, we will be watching The Lion King, and working on in-depth and complex film reviews.  We will be looking at time in Numeracy, as well as both 3D and 2D shapes, and learning about angles.

In Science, we are mainly focusing on teeth – we will look at why we have teeth, what they are used for, and the difference between human and animal teeth.  We will also be thinking about how animals survive, and the difference between predators and prey.

PE this term is still swimming and our weekly run in the pleasaunce; we will also be learning football and ball skills, as well as beginning circuit training and learning about fitness.

In Geography, we will be learning all about Africa – the continent and its countries, and looking at the people and animals which live there.  Art will be drawing lions; we will be looking at lions in different types of art and for different purposes – as symbols of religion or strength, for instance – and will then be using our learning to create our own pieces based on this other art.

This term, we also have a few exciting trips and other activities planned – Year 4 will be going on School Journey at the end of March, during which time Year 3 will remain in school and participate in some exciting art and DT lessons.  We will also be visiting Tate Britain to see the Steve McQueen exhibition featuring a photograph of Year 3 and 4 at Halstow.  We will also be having a visit from The Birdman, who will teach us all about birds in this interactive experience.
