Teaching Assistant: Mrs Knight
Years 3 & 4
This term we will be learning all about 'Fairtrade'; what it means, what products are Fairtrade and where they come from in the world. We will be investigating world-wide global trade as well as focusing on Europe and trade links closer to home. After investigating different Fairtrade products, we will be designing and making something edible as part of our DT topic work.
Our Science topic will focus on 'Life Processes' and we will be exploring our teeth and our digestive system. We will discuss the importance of good oral hygiene, together with the importance of healthy eating.
Maths work will focus on multiplication and division and we will be investigating word problems using a range of resources as well as practising our times tables number facts to increase our speed and fluency.
Our English will focus on fiction and non-fiction texts from books such as 'The Beasties' by Jenny Nimmo and 'Ask Dr K Fisher About Animals'. We will be using these texts to plan and discuss writing similar to that which we are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar. We will focus on our handwriting and spelling to enable us to present our work in a clear and legible format.
