Welcome to Year 3/4!
Our teacher is Miss Webb and our teaching assistants are Mrs Weston and Mr Davidson. We are all enjoying getting to know each other and settling in to our new routine. Each morning begins with a maths and English lesson. In year 3 & 4 we are becoming confident and fluent readers and writers as well as learning key mathematical skills such as calculation methods and times tables. In the afternoon we enjoy Religious Education, PE, learning about our topic and much more! This term we will be learning about lots of interesting things including:
Religious Education: Our topic is family. We will be thinking about our own families and Jesus' family. We will read stories from the bible and learn about some key people in Jesus' family tree.
Maths: We will be focusing on place value including placing numbers on a number line, comparing and ordering number, writing numbers in words and numerals and the value of each digit. After this, we will move on to addition and subtraction.
