Welcome back to the Autumn Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us! You will find out what it is like to be an evacuee when we lose ourselves in the book, Harry - the story of a WW2 evacuee by Andrew Donkin. Following that, you will have to save the world from the The Chocopocolypse by designing your own chocolate bar and finding out who is trying to steal the world's chocolate in The Chocoplot by Chris Callaghan.
We will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction in maths and developing our knowledge of times tables - who can can answer the questions in 6 seconds!
In science we will be learning about the different types and function of teeth and how to keep them healthy, the digestion system and states of matter.
People is the focus of RE and we will be investigating our own family tree and Jesus' line of kings. Don't forget to bring your family research in when you return in September. It's amazing what you find out.
Anglo Saxons and Vikings are the topics in history and we will be improving our drawing techniques by designing Viking knots, swords and ships. Don't forget the extreme reading challenge - there is a prize for the most unusual place!
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 20 minutes a day reading challenge. An adult will read to your child for at least 10 minutes a day in school - can you match it at home?
Reading records will be checked every Thursday afternoon - please make sure an adult has signed them daily. To be a monthly book worm, you must have it signed.
Please read every night to an adult and talk about what has happened in your book.
There is an excellent choice of books on this website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/new-book-releases/school-reading-list-books-of-the-month/
Don't forget to keep practising your times tables - you will need to answer each question in 6 seconds for the Times Table Check in June. It really supports your calculation and problem solving.
We are using Learning Logs for homework and roughly 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 Thursday and the test will be on the following Tuesday.
Please have your summer and winter PE kit in school at all times. We will try to get outside as much as possible even if it is a bit chilly.
Maths homework will be set using Mymaths

Daily Task – Friday 8th May
Write a Prayer. The government (the people who run our country and make decisions) announced their plans for the UK yesterday. How do you feel? Are you pleased or disappointed? Are you worried about anything? Write a prayer thinking about the gifts that the Holy Spirit can give you to help with the next step. Will you ask for wisdom, patience, love?
