Welcome back to Class 2 where we are ready to start a fun and exciting Summer Term!

Our topic this term is Our Local Area!

 

In Literacy we will start the term by looking at a range of different poems. We will look at the structures of different poems and the different language used. We will continue the second half of the term looking at persuasive writing. Through learning different techniques of writing and researching the local attractions, we will produce a persuasive piece, encouraging people to visit our town.  

Punctuation and grammar skills will be introduced or refined during lessons in order to enable all children to become confident writers.

Reading and spellings are practiced daily in class and these should also be practiced regularly at home.

We encourage your support to make sure your child reads at home at least 3 times in a week and completes any homework/spelling practice set by the class teacher.

 

In Numeracy we will continue to follow the new curriculum for Y3/4. This term we will become confident at place value, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing large numbers using  both mental and written methods and be able to apply these skills to real-life word problems. Work on shape will enable us to  compare, classify and name 2d and 3d shapes and identify lines of symmetry.  We will use objects and numbers to show and calculate, order, compare and add fractions.

Homework will be given out on Thursdays in order to further practice new maths skills taught in lessons, at home.  Homework should be returned by Wednesday.  If your child requires further help or support please let the class teacher know.

 

In History children will explore the history of Bridlington. We will look closely at The Priory, The Bayle Gate and The Spa. We will compare these significant landmarks, from when they were first built to today and see how they have changed. To deepen our understanding we will visit each of them throughout the term.

 

In Science we will begin by learning about states of matter. We will carry out experiments to find out weather or not materials melt at the same temperature. We will finish the term looking at Animals, exploring in the woodland area along with a trip to Bempton Cliffs, we will be able to compare a range of different habitats.

We will also look at different beetles to create a piece of artwork using string and repeated patterns.

We will also continue to practice our keyboard skills throughout the curriculum to record, present and enhance our work with pictures, creative texts and layouts.
