Hawks

 Year 3/4 - Miss A Pickett

 

Welcome to Hawks class I'm Miss Pickett and I am the class teacher. Mrs Rogers, Miss Frowen, Miss Davis and Miss Symonds also work in Hawks class.

Our topic for the Spring Term is ‘Scrapheap Challenge’. We will begin the topic by taking part in an exciting K’Nex challenge.

In Spring 1, we will learn about electricity. We will use our scientific knowledge to build circuits and we will investigate which materials are insulators and which materials are conductors. In Literacy, we will be writing and performing our own bedtime stories. We will also use our computer programming skills to create a nightlight, which will turn on automatically when it becomes dark.

In Spring 2, we will learn about the Ancient Egyptians. We will write our own explanations about the mummification process and we will use paper mache to create some Ancient Egyptian death masks. We will also be learning about forces and magnets and we will create magnetic board games.

Throughout the term we will also learn about our Health and Wellbeing. We will learn how we can keep safe, including how we stay safe online.

Our P.E days will be Monday and Wednesday. It is a good idea if children keep their P.E kits in school at all times as P.E lessons may change due to weather and school commitments.

Homework will be set at the start of the term. Children can hand in their completed homework projects at the end of the term or as they finish each task. You can support us by listening to your child read regularly and helping them learn their times tables. Children will receive rewards for completed homework and if an adult signs their link book to let us know they have read at home. Children can become ‘Maths Champions’ and receive a special pencil when they know all the times tables for their year group: Y3; x2, x10, x5, x3, x4 and x8, Y4; all x tables up to 12 x 12.

We are all looking forward to learning new and interesting things this term.
