This is our Y3/4 class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistants are Mrs Sparkes and Mrs Vasu. This term we are continuing to study the environment and our Eco-footprint. The class will learn the local area, how the land is used and how economic resources are spread across the country and the world.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the children writing play scripts about environmental problems as well as learning about performance poetry. In Maths, the class will be focused on learning about fractions and decimals thus securing this aspect of their learning fully. As the term progresses we will use the strategies learnt so far to solve problems and Maths investigations. In science lessons, the children will learn about the different parts of a plant and their function. The children will examine the function of the stem, flower and how various seeds are dispersed. During RE , the class will be using the new Curriculum and examine the question, ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died ‘Good Friday’? This will be achieved through examining the texts about Jesus’ arrival into Jerusalem, his death and resurrection. The class will also be able to describe how Christians mark Easter and show their beliefs about Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. PE is continuing to be led by the new coach this term, and the class will be having competitive games and indoor PE sessions each week. Outdoor learning will continue with the class problem solving and working as a team.
