Pegasus Class (Year 3 and 4)
Welcome back Pegasus Class. I hope you all had a lovely summer and I hope you are ready for a brand new term.
In maths our main focus is:
- Number and Place Value
- Addition and Subtraction
In addition to this, we will be practising our multiplication tables and number facts weekly.
In English our main focus is:
- Myth and Legend stories (linked to our topic Anglo-Saxons and Vikings)
- Newspaper reports
In topic this term we are going to be learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
History - Edward the Confessor and studying some of the famous Viking raids in the United Kingdom.
Geography - using an atlas to locate which countries the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings came from and where they invaded, their trade links and using photographs to compare how settlements have changed over time
In Art / DT - traditional Viking weaving, sewing, creating Viking food and designing our own shields and boats.
This term in Science we are going to be learning about animals and their habitats. This includes:
- Exploring how animals can be grouped and classified
- Creating classification keys
- The differences between vertebrates and invertebrates
- Environmental dangers
The children will recieve a taskboard at the beginning of each term. Each week the children will have to complete either a Maths or English piece and a Science/Topic or creative piece. The children can complete the homework on the computer if they wish. The due in date of the homework will be stated on the sheet.
In Pegasus Class we aim to listen to every child read at least once a week and change their books when needed. We recommend that children read at home to an adult at least three times a week. This could be a magazine, newspaper, recipe etc.
Your child will recieve spellings at the beginning of each term. They will be given an opportunity each day to practise them and we also recommend that your child regular practises them at home to ensure spelling rules are embedded. We also advise that if your child is unsure of the meaning of a word, that they look it up. This will help them develop their vocabulary and extend their writing.
Pegasus class will be having PE every Wednesday morning at 9:30 am with Andy, our PE Teacher. This will cover a range of sports which is rotated weekly, designed to fit around the expectations of the National Curriculum. We suggest as the weather becomes cooler that your child has access to tracksuit bottoms, as well as shorts, t-shirt, suitable jumper and trainers in their PE kit.
The Year 3 and 4 team are currently orgnising a school trip for the Autumn term to support our learning. More information will be coming out shortly.
If you have any questions about your child's learning, please don't hesitate to come and see me. Let's have a fantastic first term and I cannot wait to see what we achieve over the upcoming weeks.
