Welcome to our final term together - Summer 2. I hope you all had a wonderful break. The children have come back very grown up and ready for the challenges this final term brings. With only 5 weeks to go until the summer holidays we will be working hard to prepare the children for their transition to Year 4. However, our amazing learning will continue right up until the final week. Here’s what we have been up to this week…
-Maths: we have continued with our column addition which the children are AMAZING at! They have blown me away with how well they can use this method to solve additions. We are now starting to look at time, which can be very tricky! We will rise to this challenge!
-English: we have started a new unit of work on poetry. This week we have looked at tongue twisters, nonsense poems and riddles. We created our own tongue twisters using our names and ensuring we used alliteration.
-Science: we have looked at nutrition and diet, with a focus on the 5 main food groups and nutrition pyramid. We also looked at the diets of different animals such as dogs, cats and parrots.
-Geography: we have been finishing off our work on land use and this week we thought about how much of the UK was urban and how much was rural.
-History: we are coming to the end of our Romans topic shortly, but this week we learnt all about Roman Gods and Goddesses and why the Romans believed in them. We learnt the meaning of new vocabulary such as ritual, superstition and omen. We then played some fabulous games to embed the facts we had learnt!
A few dates for your diaries:
