Literacy this Half Term:
This half term, we will be starting with a poem called Beachcomber by George Mackay Brown in which the author describes what he finds when scavenging on the beach – from driftwood to oranges but he wishes he could find a treasure chest! We will think about our own collections at home and write some descriptive lists before we write our own poems based on finding our list of objects in a setting of our choice.
Maths this Half Term:
We will start with place value – really getting to grips with what numbers are made from, where they sit on the number line, rounding, approximating and reasoning involving all of those skills. In Y3 and Y4, times table recall is extremely important so please do practise with your child at home using TTrockstars (log ins will be given to your child via letter in their bag).
Topic this Half Term:
Geography – continents, oceans, equator, hemispheres, map skills, where do we live, natural or man made, coordinates.
Art – Georgia O’Keeffe
Computing – coding using scratch
Science – States of matter – solids, liquids, gas, melting, freezing, water cycle
Reading – Please hear your child read every night and fill in their reading tree for checking each Friday.
Maths – Please encourage your child to access TTrockstars or Doodlemaths 3 times a week for 20 minutes. This regular practice will make a huge difference.
