Year 3 and 4
Welcome to the Emerald City Class
Autumn Term (1): In Narnia and Emerald City our topic is "Why did the Saxon's Invade?"
It will develop children’s knowledge of the Anglo-Saxons and help them understand how this important group fits into the chronology of Britain. Children will develop an understanding about life in Anglo Saxon settlements, the routes and kingdoms of their invasions as well as their beliefs and culture. We will investigate their mysterious writing, the runes.
In science children will become experts in States of Matter! They will develop and showcase an understanding of all areas of states of matter, including how materials can change from one state to another, through a large range of simple practical enquiries.
A date for your diary...This topic leads onto "The Vikings". we will be holding a Viking Workshop day on Thursday 1st November. We are encouraging the children to come to school dressed as a Viking. Please do not buy a special costume, we will send a letter nearer the event explaining more detail and with ideas for home made costumes.
PE kits (white T-shirt, dark shorts and plimsols or trainers) 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.
Year 3 and 4 children will go swimming on Wednesdays until Christmas. Volunteers are needed to ensure the safety of the children.Please see Mrs Hunt or Ms Cann if you are available Wednesday afternoons to accompany the children.
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. (Year 3 and 4 homework tasks available to download below). Please could all 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.
