Introduction to the Autumn Term 2016

We are 3/4JB and really excited about the autumn term.


We are looking forward to our work on our topic ‘Delightful Dahl’, with plenty of reading and sharing of our favourite stories. We have already discovered the interesting love story Esio Trot and are currently digging into the Fantastic Mr Fox.


In literacy we are developing our character and setting description skills. We have also been capturing our own special dreams for the BFG.


In numeracy, with our ‘can do’ attitude, we are zooming through the Big Maths steps. We are learning new skills such as the column method in addition and subtraction, the grid method in multiplication and the bus-stop method in division. Phew!


In science we are going to be investigating reversible and irreversible changes using jelly, chocolate and eggs.

As well as this, we are ready to take the plunge with our swimming lessons!
