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.  Homework is set on a Friday and is due in Wednesday morning. Children will always be asked to learn their times tables and practise their spellings weekly.  

Pupils will take part in weekly times tables and spelling practice to encourage their basic literacy and maths skills. Please ensure children are learning these at home. Any home help is greatly appreciated. 

 

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Friday (but please make sure children have their PE kits every day, as additional sporting events might take place during the week).

 

Topic:

Our topic for the Spring Term is Stone Age to the Iron Age. The lessons will take form of an historical enquiry: investigating artefacts and sources.

 

Science

In science this half term, our topic will be Sound. Pupils will gain a good understanding of what Sound is, where it comes from and how Sound travels. Pupils will begin to develop their investigative skills further by creating hypothesises, gathering results and writing conclusions based on the results.

I have attached the year 3 and 4 expectations of writing for the 2014 National Curriculum. I hope you find these mats useful in understanding many of the grammatical terms we will using in our lessons.
