The focus this term will be Games and Gymnastics. Please ensure PE kits are in school all week. For this term it is our plan to teach games sessions outside, so please make sure your child has suitable outdoor sports kit. P.E. kit should consist of black shorts and a white tee- shirt. Please could you send a note in if your child is unable to participate.

Science

In Science we will be exploring sustainability, we will visit Wastesavers and we will learn more about looking after our World. We will use our Numeracy skills to draw tables and graphs. Pupils will make paper and discover how long our rubbish takes to

disintegrate ! Pupils will be able to apply the skills of drawing graphs and interpreting them.

 

Design Technology

Later in the term, pupils will explore the many types of photo frames and they will design and make a frame of their own ! Pupils will be able to apply their measuring skills in the making of the frames.

 

RE /Music/I.T.

 Pupils will learn simple coding; they will be able to give and follow instructions. Pupils will use our Bee Bots and iPads for this.

Pupils will explore religious festivals and the reasons for them. In Music later this term, pupils will explore the types of sounds and make simple group compositions using these.

Welsh

Year Two skills will be consolidated. Pupils will focus on Oracy and Writing skills, learning to give opinions with reasons and learning to describe themselves. Pupils will get the opportunity to develop their Oracy skills later in the term in the role play areas.

PSHE

We will explore the topics of 'Our happy school' and 'New beginnings'.

This will be supported during circle times and key stage assemblies.

Art

Pupils will develop their appreciation of sculptures and statues. They will select a spot in the school grounds for a statue and they will design it. Pupils will then make a small version of their statue and evaluate it. Shoe boxes will be needed for this so if you have any, please send them in !

 

Support at home

To ease your child's transition into Y4, please continue to support them to read daily, practise spellings and learn number bonds/multiplication tables.
