Welcome to Year 3 and Year 4.
Hello and welcome to our class page.
This half term our Christian value is Equality and our daily collective worship will focus on this value.
This half term we will begin by exploring rivers. The children will be exploring features of rivers and how rivers are used today. The children will use a range of maps and atlases to locate the main rivers around the UK . As part of our learning on rivers the children will also find out about the water cycle. In history lessons we will be finding out about what life was like in Ancient Egypt. The children will find out why the River Nile was important, what daily life was like in Ancient Egypt and who the Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs were. Our English work will link to main topics. The children will be writing poems linked to rivers and writing information reports about the water cycle.
In mathematics the children will be exploring multiplication and division. The children will be using their knowledge of times tables to help them use written methods for multiplication and division. Following our work on multiplication we will move onto learning about length and perimeter.
