This term our topic is 'Why save the rainforest?'
In Geography, we will be studying the rainforest, their importance and the affect of people. In English, we will be writing discussion texts and kennings poems.
In Maths, we are looking at fractions and decimals. In Science, we are continuing to look at Living Things. We are still working on our RSPB Wild Challenge and aim to achieve the Silver award.
In Design Technology, we will be designing and sewing felt frogs. In Art, we will be looking at the artist Henri Rousseau and using different media to create toucan art.
Our R.E. topic is 'What can we learn from religions about what is right and wrong?'. Our P.E. topic will be tennis. Our RSHE/Jigsaw topic is Relationships. In computing, we will be looking at branching databases and spreadsheets.
Design Technology - Beanbag frogs
As part of our Rainforest topic, we designed, made and evaluated Beanbag frogs. We demonstrated our sewing skills. We are really impressed by how unique all our frogs are.
Henri Rousseau inspired art
We looked at the artist Henri Rousseau and created sketchbook pages about him. Then we focused on learning how to draw a toucan using a sharpie. We photocopied our art work and used a variety of media to colour e.g. watercolours, oil pastels and soft pastels.
Geography - Rainforest
As part of our rainforest topic, we visited the Amazon with the help of a VR headset and wrote postcards. We looked at the layers of the rainforest and used our Maths skills to produce a line graph of the weather. To finish our topic we compared the ocean and rainforest biomes.
Our Rainforest Promise
As part of our Rainforest topic, we learnt how we can help save our rainforests. We all wrote a promise and made a Y3/4 promise tree.
In Computing, we have been looking at branching databases. We will be using these skills to classify animals in our Science lessons.
Every child has been assigned six Collins Ebooks linked to our Rainforest topic.
These books can be used to support homework.
The books may be lower or higher than your child's reading level.
