In the first part of the Autumn term, we loved exploring our solar system in Moon Zoom!
Our current topic is Dinosaurs with a focus on Science where we are learning about teeth and how eating the right foods can keep them healthy. In History, we are exploring how dinosaurs lived and how fossils help us learn about them. We will be looking at the life of Mary Anning, a young girl who lived long ago who found a huge fossil on the beach where she lived.
In English we are reading ‘Dinosaur Roar’. We are also using our Forest School experience to develop our speaking and writing skills. We are working hard to improve our reading skills and phonics work is helping us to do this.
In Maths lessons, we are learning to count on and back from different numbers. The value of numbers is really important and we learn about this by matching numbers to objects and checking we have the right amount. In our dinosaur café we are learning to speak and listen to each other as we work. In December, Santa’s workshop will help us to plan and create models and Santa’s office will help us learn how to write lists.
Below is an overview of the Y3 and Y4 curriculum.
