Year 3/4 


Autumn Term 2018

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.

We have already started to work on our spelling rules and patterns, which will help with our writing.  We will be firing up our imaginations to write about our 'Unbelievable summer holiday".  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 sound, we will be exploring what sound is and how it is made, while exploring different sounds around us.  We will be using musical instruments to explore different sounds.  I'm sure we will also be making a lot of noise at some point!!!

In geography we will be improving our skills by exploring Jamaica, learning about the country and it's traditions while comparing it to our area.  We will be looking at Jamaican art and trying to create some of our own.  This will also link to our music topic where we will be listening to and singing songs by Jamaican artists.

PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays this half term.  We will be working with our dance coach Nichola to plan and perform dance routines linked to our topic of Jamaica.  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.
