Miss Townes

Welcome to Year 3 and Year 4 J

The name for our topic lessons, for the next half term and beyond is, All Around The World, We will be visiting different countries and learning about their different ways of life, such as their foods, geography, climate and the different physical and human characteristic of those countries.

In the science element we will look closely at the Water Cycle and its importance in the planets survival. Key elements of evaporation and condensation will be investigated, as well as how particular animals survive in the environments of those countries and continents. We will learn about different rock forms and how soil is formed too.

The geography element will help us locate different countries and continents focussing on Europe and North and South America. We will use maps, atlases, Google Earth and globes to identify places and characteristics in both human and physical form.

The children will improve their knowledge of foods from around the world, prepare and cook some savoury dishes from some of the places we visit.

They will appreciate and understand a wide range of music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians such as Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite – Russia.

In art we will improve their design techniques including drawing and painting; specifically using St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow (oil pastels) and the Hallgramskirkja Church in Reykjavik (marbling and pen drawing).

IN PE we will be teaching transferable skills used in a range of sports by concentrating on Basketball and Tennis incorporating team play, rules and sportspersonship..

We will continue with our PHCE lessons involving Money how we use it and items such as bank accounts and pay slips s well as undertaking continued circle time looking at our own well-being. In RE the Easter story will dominate the teaching, firstly.
