Teaching Assistant: Mrs Simmons
Welcome to Dartmoor class – Autumn Term 2019
Dartmoor class currently has 18 children, Years 3 and 4. Our Autumn term is packed with challenging, fun and engaging activities that look to stimulate learning in the safe environment of Boasley Cross Primary School.
Our Autumn Term is focusing on what we find challenging, both on a personal and global level with the question of “What challenges face the Modern World today?”
Our Maths focus this term will help us to consolidate our understanding of Place Value and number, working on column addition and subtraction. Our English will focus on both fiction and non-fiction texts which will also teach us vocabulary needed for our Science subject of skeletons.
Our History work at the beginning of term will follow the Anglo Saxons and how they settled in the UK; we will then contrast their lifestyle with modern day living in the United Arab Emirates – one extreme to the other.
After half-term, we will learn all about rivers in our Geography topic work; discussing different physical features of rivers and the technical vocabulary we can use.
Throughout the term, we will be working hard to show how we can be 'Respectful, Resourceful and Resilient'.
Please see our Curriculum Overview for more details on our learning areas.
