Kestrels – Years Three and Four

Hello Kestrels!

Welcome to our class page! This is the main page, that we will update with what we are doing for the half term but please don’t forget to look at our parent page which is updated weekly with pictures of what we have been up to in class.

Our PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday this half term, the children can still come to school in their PE clothes and as the weather is still warm we will be outside as much as possible so this needs to include trainers, house colour t-shirt and black shorts.

In literacy, we are starting off a new topic based on the new season. We are going to be looking into the sights, smells and feelings of autumn in order to write a poem entitled ‘Autumn is Here’. We will go outside and investigate outdoors, collecting leaves and studying the wildlife we find at this time of year. We are really looking forward to it!

In maths, we are working on place value to start with and then we will move onto addition and subtraction. Through these topics we will explore partitioning, number lines and rounding. I have been so impressed by how the children have embraced the challenges so far and problem solving that comes with the maths we explore.

We will also be starting a new theme topic called ‘Athens vs Sparta’. Through this topic we will explore the Ancient Greeks, where and how they lived, what we learned from them and about the Greek Gods and stories associated with them. We will also delve into some of the battles and why Athens differed to Sparta.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
