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 going to study Ancient Greece. The class will learn about Greek life, their achievements and influence on the western world.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the children writing non chronological reports about the Ancient Greeks as well as learning about persuasive writing. In Maths, the class will be focused on learning about time and shape and space 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 characteristics of living things and different types of habitats.
During RE, the class will be using the new Curriculum and examine the question, ‘When Jesus left what was the impact of Pentecost?’ By the end of the topic the children will be able to make clear links between the story of the Day of Pentecost and Christian belief about the Kingdom of God, describe what Pentecost means to Christians and that is put into every day life. In PE, swimming will happen every Tuesday and will be led by staff at the Stour Centre and Outdoor games will be led by an outside coach around competitive games. Outdoor learning will continue with the class problem solving and working as a team.
