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 myths about the Ancient Greeks as well as learning about how to write some gripping adventure stories. In Maths, the class will be focused on learning about shape and space, statistics and symmetry 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 human body, its bone structure as well as how muscles allow movement in the body.
During RE, the class will be using the new Curriculum’s questions to examine their learning and access a deeper understanding of the topic. The question this term is, ‘What do Christians learn from the creation story?’ 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.
