Throughout the Autumn term we will be finding out all about ‘where we belong’. 
In Geography we will be learning all about land use in and around Newark where we belong. We will also be looking at counties and cities in the UK. We will be investigating the question ‘How does a shadow change?’ and ‘Does a bigger magnet mean a bigger force?’ in Science and in History we will be looking at the changes from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. This term’s Art focus is drawing and in DT we will be making Stone Age shelters. We will also be composing our own music during our  Music sessions.

We will be looking at Digital Literacy and E-Safety in Computing.



Homework for Y3/4 will be given out on Tuesdays.  It will consist of three activities and should be handed back into class no later than the following Monday. Each week children will have 10 spellings to learn.  The spelling test will be on a Tuesday morning. There will also be times tables to complete alongside a specific piece of maths relating to our learning that week and a piece of grammar work. There may also be one other activity which may be English, topic or related to Come and See. 

Children also need to be encouraged to read every night (15-20 minutes). Please try to hear them read as much as possible and ask them questions about the text or explain words/phrases they are unsure of. We ask that you sign the reading diary at least three times a week to show that your child has read at home.

 Year 3/4DO will be taking part in swimming for the first term and Wednesdays.  Please ensure that girls have their hair tied up and that they don't come to school with earrings in. We will be doing one session of PE outdoors so please ensure your child also has their outdoor kit in their PE bag. We ask that your child has their PE bag in school every Monday and they are free to take it home to wash on a Friday.
