Year 3 & 4

Welcome to our learning in Year 3 & 4 - Spring 2

 

Welcome back for the Spring term!  It’s so lovely to have the lighter mornings and evenings; hopefully the weather will improve soon…

This term in Year 3 and 4, our topic is Paws and Claws, which follows on from last term’s Predators and Prey, and we have planned an exciting trip to the Old Royal Naval College to learn all about the Painted Hall ceiling and the mythical creatures depicted there.

We will be looking at life cycles – of flowers, animals, and all living things, and we will have the very exciting opportunity of observing a life cycle first-hand, as we are participating in a chick-hatching project; we will be having an incubator of fertile eggs, which we will then see hatch into chicks before being returned.

In DT, we will be designing and making a cart in which to safely transport the eggs.

Literacy this term will be based around The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and in RE we will be learning about Hinduism.  The focus of Geography will tie in nicely with our topic as we will be looking at climates and habitats; how living things change and adapt to fit in with their environments, and how life flourishes under many and varied conditions over the world.

In Numeracy we will begin by looking at measure and conversion, and PE will be netball – as well as swimming for the two classes who haven’t yet been, and the weekly run in the Pleasaunce.

Owen had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow, and everywhere that Owen went the lamb was sure to go - it followed him to school one day... Which certainly made the children - and adults! - laugh! Big thanks to Owen and Eve for bringing in your lovely lamb
