For our Spring topic, we will look at the physical features which make a woodland and why it attracts particular animals. We will focus on the animals that live in woodland areas. In our own environment, we will explore the school grounds and talk about the physical and human features that are all around us. We will be reading ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson.
Practical activities will include making wands for magical fairies and elves and designing a small world garden where these imaginary characters can live. Using natural materials with different textures and features, we will design and make a collage display.
In Science, we will learn about the parts of a flower, what they need to grow well and we will also plant seeds.
In art, the famous Van Gogh painting of ‘Sunflowers’ will be our focus and we will all become artists!
English lessons will focus on learning the sounds of letters and blending them to make words. In writing, we will use our phonics skills to compose sentences and write words. We will keep practising our names so that we form each letter correctly.
In Maths, we will be learning different ways to count objects, recognise and write numbers and use our skills to make more and less.
Below is an overview of the Y3 and Y4 curriculum.
You can also explore our activity passport. We will try and complete as many of the activities on the list as we can this year. Keep checking to see how much we have managed to tick off.
