YEAR 3 & 4

This autumn term we have lots of exciting things to learn in year 3 & 4.

In history we are looking at Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms and Viking invasions.  We will be putting our historian hats on and devilling into timelines and important people. We will be looking at how they lived, who they believed in and how battles were won and lost. 

In geography we will be exploring rivers, how they are formed and what importance they have. We will be investigating where a river starts and ends, and all the bends in-between. 

Our two science topics this term are habitats and electricity. The children will learn all about the 7 things all living things have in common; what vertebrates and invertebrates are; what classification keys are used for; how to make  complete circuit; electricity safety and do some exciting experiments using electricity to name a few. 

In art and design we are experimenting with pattern and texture as well as using different media and tools. In Design technology we will be getting our taste testing hats on and coming up with great new recipes and building and designing our own useful torches. 

In RE we will be looking at Heartsmart, helping us learn to love ourselves like God does. Plus, we will be looking at Christianity – What did the parables teach us? And Buddhism – exploring its origins. 

Our guided reading book this half term is Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. This is a fantastic story that will last with the children a lifetime. We will be exploring the books highs and lows through discussions as well as comprehension. We will engage with and try to understand all the emotions Charlotte, Wilbur, Fern and the other animals in the farm experience throughout the book. 

We will be enjoying all sorts of outdoor PE (weather permitted) with Ryan on a Monday and Friday afternoon. We are also lucky enough to have Rob come and teach us tennis on a Monday morning for the first part of the Autumn term.
