Year 3/4 


Autumn Term 2019

Welcome back to the new term.  We are settling into our new teams and routines already.

We have already started to work on our times tables which will be a real focus across the year, we will be continuing to work on number and place value including problem solving with addition and subtraction.

Spelling groups are in place where we will be learning rules and patterns, which will help with our writing.  We will be firing up our imaginations to write adventure stories, Haiku's and newspaper reports.  We will be developing our editing skills using our knowledge of sentence construction and grammar to improve our writing.

Our science topic this term is , animals including humans.  We will be learning about what keeps us healthy with a lot of work on diet and exercise.  We will be finding out different ways of classifying animals.  We will also be trying out some new activities in our annual healthy schools week.  Along side this we will be thinking about mindfulness and finding ways to relax and re charge to help our mental well being.

In Religious Education we will be exploring the ten commandments and thinking about how they help Christians to live their lives. This will also link to our mission statement and how we work together in school.

 French this half term starting with simple greetings, colours and counting in French.

Linking with our french we will be basing out artwork on the French artist Henri Rousseau. We will be using a variety of media to create works in his style.

PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays this half term.  We will be working with our dance coach Nichola to plan and perform dance routines linked to the circus.  We will be improving our games skills with the coaches from Stockport County.

There will be a homework club on Tuesday's after school until 4:15.

Thank you for your continued support.
