Emerald City

Year 3 and 4

Mrs Hunt

Welcome to the Emerald City Class

Summer Term (6): In Narnia and Emerald City our topic is "What's the perfect picnic?" 

The main aspect of our topic wil have a design and technology focus. Children will develop many skills throughout the topic with the end purpose of designing a healthy sandwich for a picnic. Children will be developing skills to carry out research about a selection of different sandwiches and where a ingredients come from. They will investigate ways to make a sandwich healthier. Finally they will perform food preparation skills safely and hygienically to make their sandwich.

In science we will be finding out why our teeth are different shapes and understand that they have different functions. Children will use evidence from their knowledge of an animal’s diet to identify which teeth belong to which animal and begin to understand the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system. WE will also investigate the diets of other animals and compare them to that of a human as well as making links between plants and animals in the form of food chains.


All of our PE will be outdoor this term, taking advantage of the good weather! PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday this term, with the focus on Outdoor and Adventurous games and athletics. PE kits should be in school "just in case!" and for any sports clubs or visiting coaches. Please ensure PE kit and school clothing is clearly named.


All children have homework books and a task sheet. Each homework task is worth points. Children should aim to complete a total of 20 points each half term. They may choose their homework task for the week from the termly list. Please could alll homework tasks be handed in on a Thursday so we may celebrate homework together on Fridays. Remember to as creative as you wish for each task. See homework links below.


Children have an opportunity to change their reading books everyday. However it is helpful if reading diaries are signed to ensure children are reading, engaging and understanding what they read. Please ensure you listen to your child read regularly and sign their reading diaries.
