Beech Class – Year 3/4
Welcome to Beech Class! We are Year 3 and 4 children.
Welcome back to our final term!
What a busy year we have had so far and we have the busiest term to go! This term is filled to the brim with lots fun, including sports day, our whole school production and move-up day.
In English this term we will be exploring the text The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan. We will retell the story and then create our own fantasy text. We will also continue to read our class novel: The Accidental Prime Minister, which we are really enjoying (thank you Miss Walker for introducing it to us).
In Maths we will be rounding off the academic year by recapping the formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also revisit collecting and recording data as well as exploring problem solving and reasoning exercises.
In History we will learn about the Ancient Egyptians which the Year 4 children already know a bit about. Our focus will be slightly different this time around, so everyone will learn something new! In Science we are exploring plants, including identifying the parts of a plant, recognising the functions of those parts and understanding the life cycle of a plant. In French we will continue to practise phrases related to getting to know someone. We have already learnt a variety of greetings and how to say my name is...
We will be spending lots of time learning the songs for our whole school production as Beech class will be leading the singing! Information about costumes will be going out in the near future.
Please ensure your child is:
- Reading for 20 minutes every day
