Year 3/4 have settled in well to the first term of our new phase. We have been enjoying learning about Fables and different types of story endings, including twists and cliff hangers. Our children have written their own stories with a dramatic ending and have enjoyed reading them aloud to their peers.
For Maths, children work in groups which are carefully planned and resourced to suit their learning needs. In Ireland, the children have enjoyed the challenge of telling the time, as well as finding time intervals. We have also used written methods of adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. In Germany, the children have enjoyed using the ‘Frog method’ in subtraction and playing a variety of games involving addition and subtraction. In Brazil, we are focusing on number bonds and have been learning how to add and subtract with a variety of activities and games.
The children are also thoroughly enjoying learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. Furthermore, children have been working very hard on designing and making their Roman shields. We can’t wait to imitate the Roman army using our shields, in the tortoise formation.
Next half term, the children will be going to the Roman exhibition at Reading Museum. We are so excited for our first trip!
