Welcome to 3/4S Class page.
It will be a very exciting term with our topic ‘Let the battle commence...’ We will be going back in time to see what life was like when Anglo Saxons and Vikings occupied Britain. We will be linking the topic through history, art, geography and D&T. The children will be making their own artefacts in D&T. How exciting!
In English, we will start a transition unit on several books from the author and artist, Oliver Jeffers. This is to help ease the children who have moved from KS1 into KS2. We will be focusing on characters and the plots of his stories before creating and retelling our own stories.
In numeracy, the children will be focusing on place value and move forward onto addition and subtraction. The pupils will do 99 Club once a week which allows them to practice their times tables and improve their score. If you would like to help your child improve their times table knowledge, I would recommend your child playing ‘Hit The Button’. It can be found on this free website https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Swimming lessons start later on in the year and more information will be available near the time. Children are required to bring a towel, goggles (if needed) and their own swimming costume. Girls need to wear an all-in-one swimming costume.
P.E. lessons are twice a week with our indoor lesson on a Wednesday afternoon. It is advised that children bring their P.E. kits on a Monday and leave them at school all week and take them home on Friday.
