Welcome to Year 3/4
 
 
 
Our topic this term is:
 
Yabba Dabba Doo!
During Theme, the children will improve their understanding about soils, rocks and fossils. They will be carrying out investigations and reporting their improved understanding on a blog. Look out for details soon about how your child can add comments and questions to the blog.
Year 4 residential April 2018
Wildside
 
The children had an amazing time during their residential. Although they were quite tired, they were so happy to share their experiences with others, and wrote recounts which clearly demonstrated the great memories they will now keep forever. Please have a look at the Wildside display, when you are next in school.
During Maths this half term, the children will be learning about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will continue to practise their mental arithmetic skills as well as written strategies to answer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions.
 
Please remember to use TTRockstars to help improve how quickly times tables can be answered.
 
Suspense Writing
 
 Is anyone at home?
 
This half term, the focus is on suspense writing. The children will look at a model text and identify the success criteria for writing an effective suspense writing. They will learn to:
Describe a setting using effective vocabulary.
Using show not tell.
Writing a range of sentences for effect.
 
 
 
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.
