Welcome to Year 3 and Year 4.



Hello and welcome to our class page. 


This half term our Christian value is Resilience and our daily collective worship will focus on this value. 





This half term in geography lessons we will be continuing to learn about rainforests. The children will find out what a rainforest biome is like, using maps to locate rainforests, finding out about what the climate is like in rainforests and exploring deforestation.  Our English work will link to our work on rainforests. The children will be writing explanation texts linked to rainforests and writing letters about deforestation. 


In mathematics the children will be exploring money, time and measures. The children in Year 3 will be recording money in pounds and pence, adding and subtracting money and finding change. As part of our learning on time, Year 3 children will be telling time to the nearest minute and finding out about hours, days, months and years. Year 3 children will also be exploring types of angles and different types of lines. The children in Year 4 will be ordering, adding and subtracting money. They will also be rounding amounts of money to the nearest 10p and nearest £1. During our learning on time, the children in Year 4 will be converting units of time and writing times in different ways. They will also be comparing angles and exploring angles in shapes.
