This is our Y3/4 class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistant is Mrs Vasu.
This term we are going to study the Dark Ages with a focus on the Anglo-Saxons. The class will learn about Anglo-Saxon life, invasions and why some settlements are popular and others are not.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the children writing instructions about how to capture the monster Grendal as well as learning about how to write some gripping adventure stories. In Maths, the class will be focused on learning about number, place value and decimals. 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 sound and how it is made.
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, 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.
