Our topic this half term will be...INVADERS & SETTLERS!
This term, we will be exploring the fascinating history of the Saxons and the Vikings in Britain. This topic has a History focus and follows on from our work on the Romans. We will investigate what happened when the Romans left Britain and how and why new invaders and setters came to our shores. Please find the Knowledge Organiser with details of our Topic in the USEFUL DOCUMENTS section at the top of this page.
In English this half term, we were due to look at the story Beowulf the Dane which links directly to our topic. This story is over 1000 years old and tells the tale of an ancient Danish warrior who fights despicable monsters. Perhaps you can find and read a copy of the version we were going to use in class?
In Maths this term, we will revise previous units and begin learning about Fractions. The unit on Fractions will focus on exploring the difference between unit and non-unit fractions, making one whole, counting in tenths, ordering and comparing fractions, finding fractions of amounts, exploring equivalent fractions, and adding and subtracting fractions.
Homework will focus on learning the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. An activity will be handed out on Tuesday and will be due back on Monday. Another fun and engaging way to practice times tables is through the website TT Rockstars!
Did you know your TT Rockstars log in works on the site site Numbots too? Numbots is a fantastic site by the same team that brought you TT Rockstars that helps your children with early counting, adding and subtracting. Please give it a go if you feel this will support your child's Maths learning.
If you would like additional homework, please speak to your child's class teacher.
If you need another copy of your child's TT Rockstars log in, please speak to your child's class teacher.
Each Friday, we have a spelling test on the spelling rule we have focused on that week. The sheet
will be available to go home once scores have been collated and logged. Be sure to practice your spellings at home so you can beat your score week on week!
We will also look at the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spelling list throughout the year with a weekly focus.
Please find the spelling list for this half term in the USEFUL DOCUMENTS section at the top of this page.
