Class Four: Year 3/4

Welcome to our class page.

Welcome back to Year 3/4 and I hope you all had a super summer.

Firstly, may I thank you all for the gifts at the end of last term, it was very kind of you all.

 

Our first half term’s topic is The Tudors

During our topic we will learn about the Tudor times, the kings and queens as well as what it was like to live during this period in history. We will link some of our computing work to research facts and produce pieces of work.  Our Art work will also link as we will be drawing and painting portraits of our friends as Tudor kings or queens and have already learnt how to mix our new powder paints to create different colours, shades and tints.

During music we will learn to sing Greensleeves, play some music and look at rhythmic patterns.  During P.E Tuesday, we will learn some traditional Tudor moves and country dancing, then use these to compose some dances of our own.  Football skills will be taught by Mr Darcey on a Thursday afternoon.

In RE we will be learning about the beautiful world which will lead into our next topic on Animals .

In science, we are learning about Rocks.  We will find out where they come from, sort them into categories, describe them and plan, make hypothesis, carry out and evaluate an investigation with them.

P.E continues to be on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit with them for the whole week. To be prepared for all weathers, please can your child have plain, dark tracksuit bottoms, a long sleeved top and trainers, so that we can still do our P.E outside when possible. Please could your child also have black shorts, a plain white t-shirt for when we do P.E indoors.

If you have any artefacts or expertise that could help the children learn more about our topics then please let me know.

 

Reminders- Year 3 children’s Bible service is on 3rd October at 9.15am at school.  I hope you can join us for this special occasion.

Harvest festival- 11am on the 10th October at St Augustine’s – A chance to be thankful.

Mrs Walley
