As readers we will be exploring the book Where The Forest Meets The Sea by Jeannie Baker.
This week as writers we will be comparing the setting at the end of the book to the setting we described last week. We will be using antonyms of the adjectives and verbs that we collected for the tranquil rainforest last week that the boy goes to when he is younger.
We all had a fantastic time yesterday with the animals and rangers from Kimmy’s Zoo. It was incredible to meet some real rainforest creatures face to face and get to ask lots of questions about them……lots of photographs to follow soon. A big thank you for the rangers for helping us link our learning in such a special way.
This week as Scientists we will be sorting animals into different groups using their features. We will be learning the words “Vertibrates” and “Invertibrates”.
We will continue to investigate how to sort and classify living things using keys to separate them into different groups!
Year 3 have P.E on a Monday afternoon with their class teacher.
They also have outdoor P.E. every other Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Birch the School Sports coach.
P.E. kits should be kept in school ALL week incase they are needed at other times.
P.E. Kits should include: A white T.shirt, blue or black shorts, trainers or plimsolls and a plain tracksuit for outdoor P.E.
Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed on P.E. days.
We are still in need of a few more shoe boxes for our exciting Rainforest Design and Technology project. Please send any that you may have at home into school by the end of next week. Many Thanks.
The Reading Challenge.
Please remember to take part in our weekly reading challenge. It’s really easy! All you need to do it to read for 5 minutes, 5 times a week and record it on your reading challenge slip. Make sure you hand your slip in on Monday morning to be entered into the prize draw to win a book in assembly on Monday afternoons. Let’s see if all 4 classes in Year 3 and 4 can reach Mrs Ashford’s target of 75% taking part in the challenge. WE CAN DO IT YEAR 3 AND 4!!!
As Mathematicians we are looking at picture graphs to help us interpret and collect data. We have been linking our learning by making picture graphs of different rainforest animals and answering a range of questions about the data. We have made our own picture graphs using data on our favourite fruits, pets and even dance moves!!!!
Spring Term Homework 2019
We are pleased to announce that we will now be using My Maths for our weekly maths homework. This is an online maths program that means you can access the homework from your own computer or tablet. Each activity can be tried as many times as you want to improve your score and there are online tutorials if you need extra help. Last week you took home your special login codes to have a go at your first My Maths activity. Please speak to your class teacher as soon as possible if you have any trouble accessing My Maths at home.
This term the English homework will be focusing on comprehension questions from a range of text types. Each week there will be different styles of questions to help us fully engage with different types of writing from non-fiction to instructions and stories. Please try to answer the questions as fully as possible to show your understanding of the text and please see your class teacher as soon as possible if you need any help.
The Year 3 and 4 Team.
