Welcome to Red Arrows class!
This year our class is named 'Red Arrows' class.
Term 3 - Misty Mountain, Winding River
We wish you all a very happy new year. We hope you have all enjoyed some rest and relaxation over the Christmas break.
We cannot wait to explore our new topic together!
Throughout this project we will learn about the characteristics and features of rivers and mountain ranges around the world, including a detailed exploration of the ecosystems and processes that shape them and the land around them.
During our topic we will explore a range of texts including diaries, leaflets, explanations and narrative poems. With each genre we will identify its features, use of language and vocabulary and learn to use these effectively to create our own texts.
We will continue to use Sir Linkalot spelling strategies every day - remember your child can practise at home.
This term we will be enjoying a range of texts about mountains and rivers, including the brilliant book, 'King of the Cloud Forests' by Michael Morpurgo. 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.
In Term 3 we will learn about multiplication and division.
Multiplication and division:
(Y3) To multiply equal groups. To multiply and divide by 3, 4, and 8.
(Y4) To multiply by 6, 7 and 9, to identify division facts. To multiply 3 numbers. To multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1 and 0.
Our PE days are on Monday (with Mrs Salisbury) and Thursday (with Mrs Lintott). Please ensure your kit is in school ready for your lessons.
If you have any questions or queries at any point during this term, please do not hesitate to contact us via the office and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
