Year 3 - Mrs Adamson, Mr Lynch and Mrs Williams
What we have been learning Useful Information                         Homework

Last half term our history topic was about the Romans and their effect on British history. We started our work by learning about where the Romans had come from and why they arrived in Britain.

We discovered that Britain had lots of natural resources like precious metals under the ground and a great climate to grow a variety of crops. The Romans brought lots of new ideas to Britain including better building methods and public toilets!

 

This half term’s topic is called ‘The Iron Man’

There is an overall science theme to our studies, launching with our annual Science Week. The children will be finding out about magnets and their properties.

We are visiting the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre to enjoy some hands on workshops using magnets and extending our learning.

We are also learning about different types of robots and how they are created for a range of purposes. The children will be designing and making their own robots.

All children our provided with a reading book and a Reading Record book. We expect all children to read and have their Reading Record Books signed at least 3 times a week. We aim to recognise those pupils who read regularly and reward their efforts. Reading books and record books should be returned to school each day.

We also set weekly homework tasks for children to complete. These tasks will be sent home on a Friday and should be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. Tasks could include, English, maths, science or topic activities. A range of activities will be provided that cater for the differing learning styles of our children.

Please help your child by ensuring they complete tasks to a satisfactory standard and return them on time. We may ask children to complete some tasks at break/lunchtimes if they are not completed at home. School offers a lunchtime homework club for children in Year 3  on a Monday.

Year 4 - Mrs Allen and Mr Linaker
What we have been learning about Useful Information                         Homework

plague.JPG 

Last half-term, our history topic was about the Great Plague, We started our work by finding out what London was like in the time before the Great Fire of London in 1666. We found out about the plague, including the horrible symptoms. We discovered the reasons why the plague spread so quickly and what help was available.

Through our research, we found out that the plague spread outside of London to a place called Eyam. We learnt how the people living here made a  decision that prevented the plague from spreading further north.

This half-term's topic is called 'Bright Sparks'. There is an overall science theme to our studies, launching with our annual Science Week. The children will be finding out about electricity and the things that use it. They will identify common appliances that run on electricity. During practical investigations the children will construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers. They will learn to identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery. They will also recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit.  Later in the topic, the children will recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors. Throughout the topic we will remind children that electricity can be dangerous.

We will also be researching famous scientists who have invented useful devices that run on electricity.
