Last term we enjoyed learning about rivers through the topic 'Flow', exploring the different wildlife of the river Dour and exploring the different parts of a river. Using developed skills, knowledge and understanding many children created their own models to support their learning, including the water cycle and a river model. Look at our pictures icon below to explore some of our fantastic learning.
This term we will be basing much of our learning around the topic
'I am warrior!'
I am warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful! Meet me in battle! Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans verses Celts, the fight is on…
Discover warring Britain: Meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the
Romans did for us.
Get ready for Gladiator School and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus:
brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum.
When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes,
or perhaps roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?
In our writing, we will explore and use the features of soliloquies, historical narrative, play scripts, instructions, invitations and menus and letters.
In guided reading, we will be exploring different texts about the Romans. Through these various texts we will continue to use and develop our reading 'VIPERS' skills through discussing the structure, vocabulary and factual writing.
Year 3 and 4 will learn to tell and write the time from an analogue clock, estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute, record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours. Also, they will learn to know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year and compare durations of events.
In statistics, year 3 will learn to read and interpret a pictogram, bar chart and table. Year 4 will learn to interpret a chart, solve comparison, sum and difference problems and read and interpret line graphs.
In addition, all children should continue to practise their times tables daily using Times Tables Rock Stars. Year 3 are focusing on 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Year 4 are focusing 6, 7 and 9 times tables. Go to the website links for great online maths games.
During term 5 we have loved receiving your emails showing us your learning. Remember if you have any questions or queries at any point during this topic, please do not hesitate to email the office and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
