Current Project

Term 4 - Rivers

 

We have produced some knowledge organisers for some of our key projects.  You can find them below.  They are a great way to revise the key learning.

 

English

We will begin the term with some poetry work linked to our topic of Rivers.  We will look at different poems including one by the well known poet and writer Valerie Bloom.  We will learn about rhythm and rhyme as we write our own poems using another as a starting point and we will also revisit different poem features including alliteration and onomatopoeia.

 

 

 

 

Maths

Year 3s will be learning how to use the formal written methods for multiplication and division.  We shall continue to embed our knowledge of our multiplication and division facts for the 4 and 8 times tables as well as revising the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables from KS1

   

Year 4s will be focusing on fractions and decimals as we add and subtract them, recognise equivalent fractions and learn about tenths and hundreths.  We will also be doing plenty of problem solving as we become more confident with them.

 

Geography - Natural Disasters

We will discover how the Earth is made up in layers and about the tectonic plates on the Earth's crust.  We will learn how earthquakes are formed and why some countries have more earthquakes than others.  We will learn about what a volcano is and how they happen.  Finally we will learn about what happens when a volcano erupts as well as finding out about some of the world's most famous volcanoes.
 

 

Science - Sound- Good Vibrations

In science this term we will be learning about sound.  We will investigate how sounds are made and how they travel to our ears.  We will learn how to make a sound louder and quieter and that they change as we move away from the source.

 

 

 

PSHEE- Healthy Lifestyles - Mental Health

In PSHEE we shall be learning about the importance of taking care of our mental health as well as our physical health.   We shall learn about strategies and support available to ensure that we care for our mental health throughout our lives.

 

 

 

RE - 

We are continuing our learning about the Hindu religion and in particular Dharma, their duty, the festival of Holi, the story of Rama and Sita and the festival of Raksan Bandhan. 

 

 

 

French

After learning about family and family members over the last two terms we will learn about our pets this term.  We will know the vocabulary for different pets and be able to ask each other about them.  We will also be able to describe them in simple ways.

 

                                      Physical Education

This term we shall be improving our gymnastic skills using apparatus. This will allow the children to show they can move, over, under, through and across. They will be be showing change of direction, level and speed and devising their own sequences.

 

 

 

Knowledge Organisers

 

We shall be starting to use knowledge organisers as a way to share the key knowledge for subject areas with you.  Please use these to revise the key knowledge with your children.
