Y3/4: Mr Fuller's Class 2018 - 2019

Mr Fuller

 

Welcome to the SpringTerm

Welcome to Mr Fuller's class page where you can find out about what our class are learning about during the year.

Our Topic this term is a HISTORY based topic where we will be studying the Stone Age.

As young historians the children will be:

  • Arranging events from the past in order
  • Explaining the achievements of prehistoric man
  • Understand how people adapted during the Ice Age
  • understand how and why prehistoric man advanced from hunter gatherers to farmers

LITERACY

We start the term by looking at stories set in imaginary worlds through the excellent book ‘Leon and the Place Between’ written by Angela McAllister with beautiful illustrations by Graham Baker-Smith. The children find out about a young boy, Leon, who really believes in magic which leads him on a magical journey. The children will explore the rich language used to create the atmosphere and consider the character’s emotions during the story.

After, the children will explore recounts through newspaper writing where they will look at the features of newspaper articles, the language used and how newspaper articles are structured. They will look at the differences between present and past tense plus writing in first or third person.

SCIENCE

Magnets is our Science unit where as young scientists the children will be investigating:

  • What do magnets do?
  • What materials are attracted to magnets?
  • What are magnetic poles?

Follow our Class Rules for a happy and safe classroom.

  • Hands and feet to yourself
  • Be kind and share
  • Put your hand up if you want to speak
  • Only one person at a time talks
  • Put things away - keep tidy
  • Don't walk with hands in your pockets
  • Always show Respect
  • Treat people as you want to be treated
  • Walk don't run in school

 

 

Homework

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.

Reading

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.

PE

On Tuesdays we will be looking at indoor athletics. On Wednesdays (weather permitting) we will be focusing on basketball with our 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).
