During the Autumn Term we will continue to look after our raised garden bed under the direction of Kelly Sandford. We will be working in groups to prepare our open space for winter and harvesting pumpkins ready for the Half term. We will also be thinking about planting for next year and redesigning an area to accommodate a compost bin..
Guinevere Class love reading and we try to fit in 20-30 minutes of reading every day. Accelerated Reader has really motivated us to read more and we are keen to complete book quizzes on iPads or laptops. We are proud of the good progress we are all making. Receiving little prizes and certificates for our reading at home in our Reading Rocket system is great.
We’ve been busy writing about Roald Dahl’s The Twits in Year 3 . Roald Dahl is also the class author of the term. We have learnt about his early life and how became a writer of children’s books. Year 4 we are looking at play scripts and showing off our acting skills.
In the Autumn Term our History focus will be on the Stone Age. So far we have looked at the timeline for the Stone Age and Mrs Spike has helped with recreating the art from the Stone Age. We are looking forward to producing art and displays using different materials.
We work hard in Maths, our Early Bird maths questions set us up and get us thinking at the start of the day, then we are ready for our lessons..We are looking forward to the opportunities to learn through SumDog and MyMaths.
On Wednesday afternoons we are busy, we learn Spanish with MrsCollins, we have a PE lesson and we also have music with Mrs Boniface. Mandy gets us singing lots of different songs and she always praises our class for the extra singing we do through the week. Opportunities to use percussion and keyboard are always exciting.
In Science, we are learning about how animals are classified and what makes a vertebrate and an invertebrate. Also we will be looking at the digestive system and how all the parts are linked.
We have been thinking about stories told in various World Religions and finding out what the moral or the message of each story is. Next we will learn about Festivals celebrated by each religion.
In Computing, we have had a look at documents that we can use on the laptops. We are exploring what different things we can add to a word document. We will be using our skills learnt to add work to our other subjects. Using,fonts, shapes colours and pictures that we will have inserted,
