Welcome to Willow Class
Willow class is for Year 3 and 4 children and is taught by Mrs Ash and Miss Gilford is the Teaching Assistant.
Each half term, the class will be set a homework project linked to their curriculum theme. In order to make maths fun and enjoyable, we will also send a maths fluency fact sheet home for the term, which gives the opportunity for children to spot mathematical patterns, make mathematical connections and speed up their calculation skills. They will also have a list of spellings for the term. All of the letters, which contain this information, are recorded on this page under Willow Curriculum Information.
P.E. will be on a Thursday and Friday, please make sure your child comes to school in their full PE Kit on this day. Please ensure that long hair is tied back and that if your child cannot take out their own earrings that they are taken out before school. We will be trying to get outside as much as possible.
Your child has been given an independent reading book to read at home, which is suitable to their word recognition and comprehension skills. They should record their reading in their reading records.
This Term's Theme: ' Vikings and Anglo Saxons '
Our Learning Journey for Summer 2: Vikings and Anglo Saxons.
Our theme for Summer 2 continues with The Anglo Saxons but we will also be exploring who the Vikings were and why they came to Britain. We will find out what Viking warriors were like and what life was like for them. We’ll also find out who King Alfred the Great was.
We will be looking at Electricity in Science and DT this term. We will explore conductors and insulators; find out how to be safe around electrical products and we’ll investigate different circuits and test batteries too. We plan to design and make a burglar alarm as well.
Writing lessons will explore Comedy and write a Newspaper Report. The following texts will be looked at; The incredible book eating boy (comedy) and The creature (newspaper). We will be practising and using all the skills we have already learnt to build on our fluency and quality of writing.
In RE, we are investigating who the Israelites were and why they were important. During PSHE we will be looking at the Jigsaw unit ‘Changing Me’. This topic will look at puberty, body parts and having a baby.
