Spring Term - 2020


Wales - Wish You Were Here

During our topic for the Spring Term, we will be learning about the modern Celtic nation - Wales!

We will be learning about the geography and natural history of the country and learning in a cross-curricular way where appropriate.

The Year 3/4 team are really excited to learn all about the culture of Wales from mythology to literature, from cuisine to national symbols and arts - we wish you were here too!

English

In Years 3 and 4, we will be focusing on the following things:

  • Developing our comprehension skills - working on word meaning, retrieval and inference questions. We will be improving our vocabulary and understanding, as well as answering questions by using clues in the text.

  • Becoming familiar with the features of myths, legends, Haikus and non-fiction texts.

  • Continuing to develop our love of reading.  WE ALL LOVE READING! 

  • Writing setting and character descriptions, recounts, sequels inspired by books we have read, playscripts, performing, writing and reciting poetry (Haikus), writing and following instructions and creating non-chronological reports linked to our Topic lessons. 

  • Improving our knowledge of SPaG. We will focus on extending the range of sentences with one or more clause using a wider range of conjunctions, choosing nouns or pronouns appropriately, and expressing time, place and cause using conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions.

Maths

  • In Maths we will be looking at the 4 mathematical operations and mathematical reasoning. We will be focussing on developing our fluency, problem-solving and reasoning using APE. (Answer it, Prove it, Explain it!) We will also be working on place value, money, fractions and position and direction.

It would be really helpful if you could: 

  • Practise all of the times tables.

  • Let your child explain what they have done in Maths that day.

  • Explore topics assigned on Mathletics.
