Green 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Green Class
We are a Year 3 and 4 class taught by Mr Robinson, supported by Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Clogg and Mrs Mitchell.
This is what we will be learning in the Summer term:
We still have a huge emphasis on learning the times tables so please encourage your child to go on Times Tables Rockstars daily. You will be able to find a link to this on the school website. We will also be focusing on fractions and time whilst continuing to practise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be applying all that we have learnt to try and answer real life problems. Children find time difficult to understand so please could you help them learn o’clock, half past, quarter to and past and time to 5 minute intervals.
We will develop our literacy skills across a range of genres and text types - Exploring the power of persuasion in advertising. We will play with language, create adverts and promote healthy habits. The grammar includes conjunctions and expanded noun phrases. In Poetry, we will immerse ourselves in poetry, reading and choosing poems, comparing and analysing, then writing. We will study fronted adverbials and possessive apostrophes, all in the context of a poem for every day of the year. However, our biggest focus continues to be on reading as it is fundamental to your child’s wider academic development. Therefore it is crucial to read to and listen to your child read a broad range of texts. It is even more vital to read this term after a protracted absence from school. Please read 5 or more times a week whilst asking questions about the text to help improve comprehension. Please go on Bug Club as there are books ideally levelled at your child’s ability with questions for them to answer that are designed to improve their reading comprehension skills.
Geography: The UK
We will take a look at the geography of the UK - from the physical features of mountains, rivers and seas to the man-made administrative regions and counties. We will find out how the UK has changed over time, looking at how London grew and how the population of the UK as a whole has changed throughout the course of history.
ICT: Using and Applying
We will be using all our computer skills, including the use of different hardware and software, and applying them across other curriculum areas.
We will learn the names of different parts of plants, and the jobs they do. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate what plants need to grow well, and will present their findings to their classmates. Furthermore, they will have the chance to predict what will happen in an exciting investigation into the transportation of water within plants.
We will learn about Jewish symbols and artefacts and the lives of Moses and Abraham.
Music: French Songs and the Human Body
The children will be learning songs in French and about the body.
The children will explore how to use pencil, colour, mosaic design, puppet making and sculpture to create quality artwork that shows progression in these skills.
This will usually be set on Class Dojo on Friday, to be completed by Wednesday. Please make sure your child goes on TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Bug Club.
PE: Athletics and Cricket
Outdoor sessions are on a Tuesday. Our indoor PE will be on Thursday. Please remember to come to school dressed in the appropriate PE kit.
