Dear Year 3/4 Parents/Carers,
We have had a fantastic start to the new academic term. Children have settled very well, including new children to the school. We have established our classroom rules which are;
Be kind to others, make smart choices, listen to the teacher, be polite and keep the classroom tidy.
In Maths we are looking at place value, addition and subtraction and using the column method. We will be looking at properties of shape and co-ordinates.
In English we have been looking at historical texts and poems to do with the Victorian topic and our grammar lessons have been how to write speech and use apostrophes.
Our topic for this term is ‘Why was the Victorian period important for us?’ We have been looking at the role of the Victorian Workhouse and what jobs children were expected to do. We are also looking at Queen Victoria and her role as monarch.
For our Science work, we have been looking at changes of state. We have looked at evaporation and how items dry. We will be looking at how materials can change from a solid, into liquid and the gas and what is needed for these changes to happen.
We are looking forward to our annual trip to Stanley Head which will be later in the term where children get the chance to work with their class in building activities and sports.
Mr Meir (Year 3/4)
