Splash! Where does all the water go?

Year 3/4 Summer 2022 Information 

Our topic this term is Splash! Where does all the water go? We will be covering a wide range of geography skills as part of this topic including a river study, looking at the water cycle and naming and locating key topographical features such as hills, mountains, coasts and rivers of the United Kingdom. We have an exciting visit planned to Macclesfield forest where the children will have the chance to explore a river and its features, through experiential learning and geographical fieldwork skills

Please download the topic web at the bottom of the page to find out more about what we will be covering in our topic this term.

Spellings:                 

The children are grouped for spellings and phonics and will receive weekly spelling homework on Spelling Shed linked to the spelling patterns they are learning in class. In addition, the children should continue to learn the National Curriculum spelling lists which were given out at the start of the year. Children are expected to learn one column of spellings per half term and will require help and support at home to ensure the children achieve well. Ideally this should happen weekly – little and often – to enable the children to master the spelling of all of the words. We realise that some of these spellings may appear quite demanding, but every child in the country has to be proficient in the spelling of these relevant age-related words. (See attached list) 

PE Timetables 

Outdoor PE is timetabled for Wednesday afternoon for all classes in Year 3 and 4 this term and all children need to come to school dressed in their PE kit at this time.  At this time of the year, the weather is very changeable so always send your child in with the appropriate PE uniform (please refer to the school PE uniform policy on our website for guidance).  May we remind you that all uniform should be labelled to avoid any confusion and missing kit. 

Love Music Trust

During the Summer term, Class 6 will be taking part in our Love Music Trust wider opportunites on a Friday afternoon. A music specialist, Mr Curtin, will work with the children to introduce the exciting world of instrument learning. A email containing more details will be sent out to parents. 

Fitness Friday

We will continue to come to school dressed in our PE kits on Fridays, as we have a focus on keeping active and healthy. Prepare for an active and enjoyable day of learning!

Reading 

All children are expected to read for up to 30 minutes three times per week as part of their homework and have their reading diary signed by an adult. These will be checked by their teacher during daily Guided Reading lessons. All pupils in Year 2/3/4, when reaching a suitable standard, will have access to Accelerated Reader, where children read their choice of book and complete a comprehension quiz online at the end. These results are tracked by teachers and the children achieve points for good test results.
