Welcome back to the Spring Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us! We will be learning about the different countries in Europe and earthquakes and volcanoes. We will be making our very own exploding volcano! In science, we will be learning all about sound and electricity. We will be designing, making and racing a battery powered car. In RE we will be learning about the community we live in and preparing for Easter.
Please visit our class blog where we upload photos and work from the children.
Password and address can be obtained from school.
We are running a 10 minute a day reading challenge. Reading records will be checked every Thursday afternoon - please make sure an adult has signed them daily.
Please read every night to an adult and talk about what has happened in your book.
Don't forget to keep practising the speed of your times tables - you will need to answer each question in 6 seconds for the Times Table Check in the Summer Term. It really supports your calculation and problem solving.
This year we are using Learning Logs and each fortnight you will undertake some research to support your topic learning. There will also be times tables to learn.
Spellings are based on the Year 3 and 4 word list (see below). They will be given out on a Thursday and ten words plus one word from the week before, will be tested on the following Tuesday.
PE - Swimming
Please bring your swimming kit every Thursday morning - costume/trunks, goggles, swimming hat and towel. Girls - it is easier to wear socks rather than tights for ease of changing.
In addition, please have your normal PE kit in school at all times.
Maths homework will be set using Mymaths
