Welcome to the Summer Term .
We have completed our Blue Planet topic and the children have really become interested in conservation, with some children litter picking in the school at break times. We are now stepping back in time to learn about the Ancient Greeks.
We have started to learn about myths, focusing on Pandora's Box to really understand the genre. We will be writing our own myth story. In our Active read we will be reading, 'Who Let the Gods out,' the children are already excited about the story and our English lessons will link to this throughout this unit in the production of information texts and leaflets to coincide with some of the characters and topics in the book.
At the end of the school year, we will be taking part in a whole school writing project, based on the book, 'The Return.'
The children will continue to complete their weekly Arithmetic lessons. Within Power maths we have just completed our fraction topic and are looking at Shape. We will be recapping the sticky Year 3 topics to ensure that the children are confident in their knowledge before moving to Year 4. The children will be bringing home their Race for Recall sheets. They should practice those time tables they are unsure of throughout the week to access the next level. Please encourage your children to log on to time table rock stars and other maths links which might be added to the Google classroom for homework. With practice the children gain confidence and deepen their understanding of methods.
In Science, we are starting to look at plants: naming the different part of plants, looking at their functions and how they reproduce. We will be looking at Forces and Light before the end of the school year too. In History we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. In Geography, we will be discovering more about Greece as a country. In DT, we will be making our own labyrinth game to play.
Please remember to look at Google classroom for homework.
PE days are currently Tuesday and Thursday.
