Welcome back to the Autumn Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us! You will be learning about WW2 and focusing on The Write Stuff Unit, Harry - the story of a WW2 evacuee by Andrew Donkin. Following that, you will immerse yourselves in the adventure of The Chocopocalypse by Chris Callaghan and designing your own SFX chocolate bar in DT.
We will be learning about place value and rounding in math and developing your knowledge of the times tables. Can you answer the question in 6 seconds?
In science you will be learning all about your teeth and how to keep them healthy.
The topics in RE are People, Called and Gift and in addition, weekly RSE.
Our History focus this term is the Saxons, followed by the Vikings.
The computing focus is Scratch programming.
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 morning - 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 Wednesday 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.

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?
