Welcome to Years 3 - 4
Friday 15th October
We are coming to the end of our first half term and I'm really pleased with the way all the children have settled into class. Next week is assessment week so there is no spelling list this week. Next week the children will be having an unseen spelling test - but if they have been learning their spellings over the past few weeks, many of the spellings will not come as a surprise to them!
Autumn term 2021
Welcome back everybody! Our theme this term is There is no place like home. In literacy we will be basing our work around two books: The Blue House by Phoebe Wahl and I'll Take you to Mrs Cole by Nigel Grey and Michael Foreman. We will also be writing a non chronological report based on our local history topic.
In geography we will be familiarising ourselves with the different regions in the British Isles as well as looking at local maps including digital resources and drawing sketch maps. We will take the opportunity to compare maps of the region from 100 years ago and in particular look at how the landscape changed with the construction of Stocks Reservoir. Using resources from Slaidburn Archive, we will find out more about the people that helped to build the reservoir and the impact it had on Slaidburn and the surrounding area.
Light and shadow is our theme in science - and hopefully we will get some autumn sunshine so that we can investigate and explore what happens as we move around the sun. We will also be considering how light travels, light sources and reflection.
Our forest school sessions will continue to run every Friday afternoon - so remember to come prepared in your forest school gear every Friday. Please ensure you have your PE kits in on the first day back. PE is timetabled for Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We are going to start the term by revising our 2 and 5 times tables and then move onto our 3s and 4s. Try and practise your times tables regularly - there are rersources blow to help you.
