Year 3/4

Welcome to Year 3/4
Our topic this half term is:
Our World!
During Theme, the children will learn about plants- looking at the function of parts of plants, pollination and the water cycle. We will also be looking at animals and learning about different systems, such as: the skeletal and digestive systems.
This half term, the children will be learning their words and rehearsing for their play, which they will perform in the final week.
Here are some really good mental addition and subtraction games!
During our Maths lessons, we are improving our mental and written skills to answer multiplication and division problems, as well as using the inverse to check answers.
Persuasive Writing
This half term, the focus is on persuasive writing. The children will learn how to structure their letters correctly. They will learn to use a range of persuasive devices, as well as giving facts to support their reasons.
Improving presentation and spelling is also a big focus within Year 3/4. Please continue to practise the weekly spellings as well as the words on the Year 3/4 spelling list.
Exciting News!
Times Tables Rockstars is now in Willowbank! The children are really enjoying this programme and we can see that it is helping the children to learn their times tables.
