Welcome to year 3/4
This half term the children in years 3 and 4 will be learning all about natural disasters through our learning challenge, What makes the Earth Angry? They will be learning about natural disasters such as Earthquakes, Tsunamis and Volcanoes and will even be creating their own, exploding volcanoes in art.
In Maths the children will be learning how to recognise the place value of each digit in 3 and 4 digit numbers, counting in multiples of 25, 50, 100 and 1000, rounding numbers, reading Roman Numerals, solving problems using number facts and adding and subtracting numbers with up to 4 digits – it will be a very busy half term!
In English the children will be looking at the book Fox by Margaret Wild and looking at the link between the story and our topic. The children will create their own endings to the story and use the forest fire in the story as inspiration to create their own poems.
Children will be learning all about the Creation and Fall in RE and how these link to this half term’s Christian value of friendship. The children will look for WOW factors in nature and those created by humans and discuss what makes our world wonderful.
Linking to our learning challenge, the children will be learning all about different types of rock in Science. As well as looking at the 3 types of rock, the children will be learning about fossils and soil, with plenty of outdoor opportunities for getting our hands dirty!
What an exciting first half term we have to look forward to!
