Year 3/4 have had an exciting summer term already! We have been learning about Michael Morpurgo and reading The Butterfly Lion. We are now part way through reading Kensuke's Kingdom and have written some of our own adventure stories inspired by Morpurgo.
For Maths, the children continue to work in groups which are carefully planned and resourced to suit their learning needs. The children have been learning about place value, the four operations, shape and fractions.
The children are also thoroughly enjoying learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We have learned how to write in hieroglyphs, designed an Egyptian death mask and learned about mummification and all the gory details! Yuck! We are now looking at the location of Egypt in the world and discovering the geographical features of Egypt, especially the importance and significance of the River Nile.
A reminder for parents that Home Learning goes out on a Friday and is due the following Thursday. Please ensure your child reads at home every night and that you're signing the reading record. The children should also be practising their times tables and spellings every week. Lastly, please remind your child to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and leave it in school until a Friday and our swim days are Monday and Fridays for Year 3 and Tuesday and Fridays for Year 4.
