Year 3 and 4
Welcome to Toucans' Class Page
Mrs Cooper is the class teacher of Toucans.
Mrs Wright is our Teaching Assistant.
We are all looking forward to a really exciting Summer Term.
Our theme and thought provoking question for the Summer Term is:
What’s the most powerful natural force on Earth?
Please find below a description of all the amazing work we will be doing in our action packed Summer Term.
Our English work will be inspired by our geography based topic. We will learn more about grammar and putting effective sentences together, whilst writing some informative, non-fiction pieces, based around natural disasters. We will also be writing stories inspired by the film ‘The Lighthouse’ and we will create our own poems.
This term in maths, we will be consolidating our understanding of number and calculation methods, whilst learning more about measurement, time, statistics and shape.
The power of forces! We will be learning about the power of magnets and how forces affect objects. We will also be learning about the characteristics or vertebrates.
In ICT, we will be using the internet to research our topic and we will use multi modal programs
During Circle Time, we will get together with children from lower key stage 2 to discuss issues in the news, as well as things that directly impact on us!
We will also begin our work on SRE
Art / DT
In DT, we will be making our own volcano using different materials and will create our own volcanic eruption!
We will be finding out about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes and where they have occurred in the world.
Our PE focus for this term is Squash and we will also practice our athletic skills ready for our sports day.
Our religious education, will see us discovering more about Beliefs and Questions.
Homework comprising of two parts will be given out on a Friday and collected in the following Friday. Spellings also go home each week and the children are tested on a Friday. Reading is vital, not only is it a life skill, but it also provides the children with writing ideas. Please take time to read with your child at home regularly.
We are going to have an extremely busy and hard working term but I'm sure it will be lots of FUN!!
Mrs Cooper and Mrs Wright are very excited about the term ahead and we are very proud of the hard work and effort you put into your work daily.
