Year 3/4

Welcome to Year 3 and 4!

 

For the rest of this term we will be learning about animals and their habitats. We will look at the classification of animals, how they have adapted to their environment and food chains.

During Healthy Schools week, the children will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of exciting activities linked to staying healthy.

Have a look at these habitat websites:

For the last half term, Year 3/4 will continue to look at the Stone Age, and venture into the time in prehistory when man began to make metals! We will be studying from the Stone Age, into the Bronze and Iron Ages; when did they happen, who and what lived during that time, where they lived, what people ate and what their life was like...

Forest School

Year 3 and 4 spent Friday afternoons in Forest School this term doing some hands-on Stone Age learning. We painted cave art using all-natural 'paints' and learned how to light a fire! Year 3/4 had lots of fun exploring the Stone Age outdoors:

Stone Age Villages

Year 3/4 have been building villages from natural materials; miniature versions of real Stone Age villages. We used willow weaving to make the houses, using straw for the roofs, even including some details like fire pits, wells, farms, rivers and fish drying racks. Check them out!

Plant Poetry

Year 3/4 began two weeks of poetry work in Literacy by exploring the Forest Schools area. We wrote down rhyming words and adjectives to help us with our plant poems. We used all five senses, similes, and some amazing wow words to write our poems... They were very good, even if we do say so ourselves!

Amazing Egyptians

Thank you so much to all the parents and family members who came along to watch our end of term play. We had lots of fun preparing it for you, but lots of hard work went into it too. Thanks go to the Year 3/4 support staff for all their help, to the PTA for their help on the night performances, to Mrs Nunn for all her hard work on costumes, and to the children for doing such a fantastic job. We're all very proud of you, well done!
