Year 3 & 4

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

 

Welcome back to the middle floor – to the (hopfully!) warmer half of the Spring term

This term in Year 3 and 4 our topic is still Wild Things and we have lots more exciting learning planned around this subject.

In Literacy, we will be reading The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and will look at the features of a mystery narrative.  We will also be working on debationg, arguing on either side of the question: "Should zoos be banned?"

PE this term is still swimming and our weekly run in the pleasaunce; we will also be learning tennis skills, as well as gymnastics and learning about fitness.  In DT we will think about construction, building trolleys to transport eggs securely.

In Geography, we will be looking at rivers and the water cycle; in Numeracy, we will look at 2D shape, thinking about area and perimeter, and at conversion - for example, kilometres to miles, hours to minutes, minutes to days, months, years, etc.  We will also be looking at fractions and thinking about their relation to decimals.

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.
