Year 3/4 - Red Arrows Class

Welcome to Red Arrows class!


This year our class is named 'Red Arrows' class.






Term 6 - Ancient Civilisations


We hope you have all had a wonderful break celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. In our final term we are completing our topic  - Ancient Civilisations!




In this project children will be taught about the history of three of the world’s first ancient civilisations: ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley civilisation. Pupils will learn about the rise, life, achievements and eventual end of each civilisation.




During our topic we will explore a range of texts including stories from other cultures. With each genre we will identify its features, use of language and vocabulary and learn to use these effectively to create our own texts. These include using adjectives, prepositional phrases, fronted adverbials, imperative verbs and a range of punctuation including inverted commas and apostrophes.


We will continue to use Sir Linkalot spelling strategies every day - remember your child can practise at home. Lists will be placed in homework books each week.

This term we will be enjoying a range of texts about Ancient Civilisations including the fantastic book, 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll. Through reading we will develop our VIPERS skills. We will continue to read a range of our own books both at home and at school, completing a quiz on Accelerated Reader after each book. Each child is working towards their personalised reading target.
