We have attached a copy (below) of our presentation for those parents that were unable to attend our Spelling Sessions. 

No Nonsense Spelling Information for Year 3 & 4

After half term the children in our class will be having spellings tests on a Friday on a fortnightly basis but they will be bringing home spelling activities each week to complete and to bring back by the following Thursday.

Within school we will be spending an increased time on our spelling (3 sessions a week).

During Advent, we have been preparing our hearts for Christmas.  We brought in Christingles, which we made at home, and lit them to show that Jesus is the light of our world. 

The water cyle

This term we have been learning all about the water cycle.  Mrs Smith visited us from Wessex Water and we participated in a wonderful workshop.

Monet inspired painting
Monet inspired painting

As part of our project on water, we studied Claude Monet (1840- 1926).  He loved to paint outdoors and particularly enjoyed using light and colour to create an “Impression.”  Monet is famous for starting a new style of art called “Impressionism.”  He created a series of paintings of the River Thames.  We used water colour paints to recreate his style of painting.  Our final pieces were professionally mounted and formed part of a fantastic art exhibition in our school hall, which everyone enjoyed.

Sharing our apple treats
Sharing our apple treats

In English lessons, the children have been investigating tall tales.  One of these tall tales was about Johnny Appleseed, who was famous for planting apple orchards across America.  To celebrate his birthday, the children brought in apple treats to share, they were delicious.

Angle hunters

In Maths lessons, the children have been exploring different types of angles.  They found acute and obtuse angles on some of the play equipment.  Elsewhere in the playground, they discovered many right-angles.

Our Anglo-Saxon village

The children researched what it was like to live in an Anglo-Saxon village.  They worked collaboratively to design and build their own Anglo-Saxon village with interactive models and lots of information.  What a wonderful exhibition.
