Welcome to our class page. We are a mix of year 3 and year 4 children who all love learning.
We are taught by Mrs Stockdale. The class is also supported by Mrs Atherton, Mrs Speck, Mrs Bell and Miss Leivers at different times throughout the week.
This term our topic is 'Art Attack'. In this topic we will be learning about the life, times and works of a range of famous artists, sculptors and composers. We will start by looking at the art work of Henri Matisse and Georgia O'Keefe. We will research their lives and their artwork and use the information we find as a stimulus for writing, as well as for artwork of our own in the style of these artists.
In English this term we will continue to develop our reading comprehension skills using the Cracking Comprehension Programme. This helps children to learn strategies they can use when answering a range of reading comprehension questions.
Inspired by our topic work, we will write non-chronological reports about the artists we research. Additionally we will design and produce leaflets to advertise and promote our own art gallery.
We will continue with the Read Write Inc spelling programme and children can practise their spellings using their log books which are sent home with them.
In maths we will continue to develop and consolidate our understanding of place value and we will also be revising our skills in using the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will practise our skills in measuring - understanding how to accurately use units of length, weight and capacity. We will also revisit telling the time and do more time related problems - please help with this at home if you can.
As always we will continue to have a big push on children becoming fluent in their times tables. Children can continue to practise these at home using the Times Tables Rockstars program.
