I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing Easter break and are ready for an exciting term of learning. I canât wait to get started!
During the summer term, we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxon settlers and will link to our English work on legends, narrative writing, and poetry. We will consider how to care for a dragon and prepare a âDragonologyâ of information. In geography, we will look at features of settlements and where the Anglo-Saxons settled.
How can we keep our teeth healthy? What should we feed a dragon? We will explore teeth and digestion in animals and replicate the digestive system along with an explanation guide. We will also link music and science through an exploration of sound. RE will focus on the Gospels and what we can learn from people of faith today. We will develop sculpting and sewing skills in the summer term in Art and DT lessons. Children will continue to develop their vocabulary, understanding of grammar and accuracy when spelling, including words on the National Curriculum year 3 / 4 spelling list.
Maths will continue to follow the National Curriculum and will including teaching place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, measurements, geometry and statistics. We will focus on problem solving and accuracy when calculating to strive to become Maths Masters in each area. Your continued support in helping children quickly and accurately recall times tables and number facts is very welcome. There are a number of good websites to practise times tables, including Hit the Button http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
