Y3/4: Mr Fuller's Class 2017 - 2018
Welcome to the SpringTerm
Happy New Year! Welcome to Mr Fuller's class page where you can find out about what our class are learning about during the year.
What’s happening this term
Our Topic this term is a Geography based topic where we will be looking at the UK region of Snowdonia which is one of our country's National parks.
As young geographers the children will be:
We start this new year by looking at different types of poems and exploring their structure and vocabulary before writing and performing our own poems.
Then we will be studying Myths and Legends. The children will learn about the legends of King Arthur before writing up their own legend based upon the story The Sword in the Stone. The grammar focuses for this unit will be: punctuating speech, description, paragraphs and pronouns.
Rocks and materials is our Science unit where as young scientists the children will be investigating:
Follow our Class Rules for a happy and safe classroom.
Literacy and Numeracy homework is given out every Thursday and needs to be completed and handed in on the following Monday.
A list of spellings are sent home at the start of each half-term and the children have a spelling test each Monday on the selected words for that week.
With reading being such an important part of every child's learning, we are really encouraging all pupils to read as much as possible out of school as well as during the school day.
All children have reading books and new reading record books to show when they are reading - which is ideally every day!
To motivate all readers, the reading records are checked regularly and children receive a sticker for every 3 separate reading sessions at home which go towards our class reward system. Children are able to change their reading books at different times of the day but have to take responsibility to change their books when they know they need to. In the juniors the children read as part of a group once a week with their teacher as part of guided reading session as well as have independent reading time.
We have indoor PE on Wednesday afternoons where we’ll be doing circuit training and on Friday afternoon we have Hockey with a sports coach.
Full PE kit should always be in school during the week; (white shorts, navy t-shirt, trainers, socks, a hair bobble for girls). Don't forget a track suit trousers or joggers and long sleeved top—for cold weather PLUS please ensure all kit is clearly labelled.
Also as part of our Physical Education programme, Year 3/4 children will be taking part in Cross country athletics every week (weather permitting).
Hydrate your brains!
Remember to bring in a water bottle every day (even through the winter).
