Welcome to 3/4SB!
Well, what a dramatic start to the summer term! On the first day back we made a shocking discovery in the vegetable patch! Can you guess what it was? It was a mysterious bone! Mrs Barrett (the gardener) unearthed it while she was digging a new hole during the Easter break! We haven’t seen the bone (just the hole) because Mrs Barrett has sent it off to an expert. However, she described it as being far too big to be a human bone! She also said it looked ancient and brittle. This made us think… Could it possibly be a dinosaur bone?
Obviously, we have decided to become Dinosaur Detectives. We will be reading about and drawing dinosaur features in an attempt to get to the bottom of our bone mystery. In literacy, we will also be writing a letter to a dino expert to get some advice. Inspired by our new knowledge of the extinct beasts, we will also be creating our own unique species of dinosaur. Not only that… in D.T. we will then be fashioning a model of our new breed of dinosaur. Plus, we will be learning about pulleys and levers so that our models can have moving parts, to really bring them to life! Once we have designed our models, we are going to invite parents and carers in each week to help with the building process. It will be great to have their help in the classroom!
In maths, we are continuing to work really hard and love to compete! 3/4SB are really fantastic at helping each other out when things get tricky and the atmosphere is always positive! During our dinosaur research we will find lots of facts and figures on different dinosaurs (from their weight or height to the amount they eat). This will help us build on our measuring and data skills. We have already done a tally chart to vote on our favourite dinosaur! We are going to continue working on our fractions while also improving our knowledge of place value and using the inverse.
