Year 3/Year 4 - Mrs Pratt & Mrs Smith

Autumn 1 - Scrumdiddlyumptious
We have had a truly Scrumdiddlyumptious time this half term, which has been packed with delicious treats throughout! We’ve based a lot of our reading and writing on Roald Dahl’s, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, writing diary extracts, stories, character profiles and letters. We have spent a lot of our time having fun designing, making and tasting a range of familiar and unfamiliar tastes which have included unusual fruits such as prunes, figs and pomegranates, making homemade lemonade and smoothies, creating healthy wraps, and baking delicious muffins and cookies...yum! Of course we used our maths skills for measuring and weighing ingredients, but we have also been learning to use place value in addition and subtraction, and learning about angles and turns. 
As well as all of this, we have also enjoyed Box2bfit and HoopStarz workshops, a visit from the Police, Pedestrian Training and Swimming lessons.
Autumn 2 - Gods & Mortals

This half term has once again been filled with plenty of fun and learning.

We've thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Ancient Greeks, hearing Greek myths and legends and using these to focus our writing on. As usual, we've also had additional fun activities such as the Climbing Wall, lessons in Yoga and Relaxation, and baking delicious treats.

Although a little different to normal, we had fun performing our Nativity, enjoyed a laugh at the pantomime, and had a great time making Christmas crafts and partying on our Christmas Fun Day.

Spring 1 - Misty Mountain Sierra

Spring 2 - Tribal Tales

Although our class 'family' were only reunited for 3 weeks this half term, we've thoroughly enjoyed being together again. 

We have learned a little about Surviving the Stone Age; looking at houses and weapons during this period, and we have also enjoyed carrying out science experiments to investigate the best insulators for keeping hot chocolate warm.

During the last week of term, we celebrated Easter Week by revisiting the significant events and using these as our writing focus, as well as baking hot cross buns, making Easter cards and crafts.


Summer 1 - Potions
