This is our Y3/4 class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistant is Mrs Vasu.
This term we are continuing to study the Dark Ages with a focus on the Vikings. The class will learn about Viking Gods, sagas as well as create a Viking out of clay.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the children writing a non-chronological report about the Viking Gods and their beliefs as well as learning about how to write some gripping Viking Sagas and write a story in the same style as a particular author. In Maths, the class will be focused on learning about multiplication and division, problem solving and continuing to revisit the previous topics so the children don’t lose those skills. As the term progresses we will use the strategies learnt so far to solve problems and Maths investigations. In Science lessons, the children will investigate light and use the clue from each lesson to work out who did it in our class mystery.
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 is it like to follow God?’ In PE, Tuesday’s sessions will be led by Miss Cresswell. On a Thursday, Outdoor games will be led by Mr Taylor with an outside coach around competitive games. Outdoor learning will continue with the class problem solving and working as a team.
