Welcome to Curlews Class!
Our topic for the whole of this term is ‘Invaders and Settlers’. Building on The Year 3 Romans work, we will be studying the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings and the Normans. Our historical activities will focus on the lives and roles of different people at the time, making comparisons with our own lives today. We will look at the journeys made by different invading tribes and their territories and customs here. English writing work will include non-chronological reports, myth & legends and diaries, all on the theme of invaders and settlers.
Please see the attached plan for our maths topics.
In our science work, we will be learning about sound, including how sounds are made and what happens when you change the loudness or pitch of a sound. As well as theoretical study, there will be lots of hands-on activities.
After some super cricket from the children last term, we will be moving onto Tag Rugby this term, working towards the MegaFest sports festival in March. Gymnastics and dance lessons will be building up to the ICC gym and dance show, also in March.
This term, PE and Wild Tribe (first half of term only – don’t forget your wellies!) will be on Thursday afternoons and Friday afternoons. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. Times table tests will be on Wednesdays. Other homework, such as spellings sentences, will be issued on a Wednesday, to be returned by the following Monday please.
