Welcome to Year 3 & 4!

 

Summer Term 2016:

This term our first topic is Predators! 

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who’s coming to dinner … a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? We will aim to learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus fly trap. We will be inspired in our writing to explore instructions for looking after your pet predator (IF ANYONE IS VISITING THE VETS AND FINDS USEFUL INFORMATION LEAFLETS ABOUT CARING FOR PETS PLEASE BRING THEM IN!) and creating poetry about predators and their prey. We will be collecting, classifying and presenting information in our Maths work using various diagrams and graphs.

As always, spellings and tables will be tested on a Monday and new ones given out.  Homework is due in on a Wednesday morning.  Spellings and Homework will be added to our class pages on the School Website. 

HOMEWORK TASKS

Homework to be handed in on Wednesday 4th May 2016

For homework please could the children devise a ‘What am I?’ quiz about predators and prey and try it out on friends and family to see how many questions it takes them to guess the right answer. See if they can beat 20 questions!

TABLES for Tuesday 4th May Please practice with the children their 6 and 12 times table facts - to include division as well. Help the children to notice patterns in the multiples of 6 and 12 e.g. which multiples of 6 are also multiples of 12.
