Welcome to Mr Plant's class page!

 

Summer Term

Homework:

Homework needs to be completed weekly. A copy of the home work will be published here every week for parents and pupils to see.  

General Information:

Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday (but please make sure children have their PE kits every day.)

Homework is set on a Friday. Children will always be asked to complete some times table revision, learn some spellings and read their Bug Club books. Children are also asked to do optional homework to be in with a chance to win the homework cup. This is truly up to you and your child and does not have to be completed. Optional homework is due on a Wednesday.

In P.E, children have been given an amazing opportunity to learn how to play golf. At the end of the half term, year 3/4 class will be showcasing their skills in a tournament!

Topic:

.We are really excited to be starting out topic for the summer term. The topic is Extraordinary Earth. The topic covers many areas including the water cycle, rivers, coasts, habitats and global warming. 

You tube is a great educational resource with lots of child friendly videos about the animals, plants and climates of the world. 

Here is a link for pupils, parents and guardians who would like to find out more about some of the things we will be learning this term.

 English: 

In English, the children will be covering a variety of writing genres. We will begin with a non - chronological report looking at endangered species, followed by a newspaper report on the subject. Afterwards, we will move into narrative based around characters from another culture. 

Maths: 

Children in Year 3 will be taught by Mrs Davidson and myself (Mr Plant). Children in Year 4 will be taught by Mrs Ramsell. I will work closely with Mrs Ramsell to ensure I am aware of your child's progress in Year 4. In year 3, the children will be working through our Maths No Problem books. Our topics will be angles, shapes and perimeter, time, money and picture and bar graphs.

 Science:

In science this half term, our topic will be habitats. The topic covers different areas, including vertibrates and how animals have adapted to their environments.  

(Click here to see Key Stage 2 objectives for each year group/subject.)

As we approach the end of the year, I thought it might be helpful to see what we will be working on in our spelling , punctuation and grammar sessions this term. Children should be aiming for expected or greater depth levels for their year group by the summer.
