Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in Maths by the end of year 3 and 4:

Please make sure that the children have the correct kit for their lesson:

Our Unit of Work ~
"The Terrific Tudors"
Below is an outline of what the children will be learning in Term 6 as we look at our new topic. Click on the subject title for a website link to help support your child’s learning.
Within Science this term, we are learning about Lights and Shadows and Electricity. They will be investigating how shadows are made. What are sources of electricity? Where do we get electricity?
We will be looking at Tudors. Who was Henry 8th? What was so important about the Battle of Bosworth? Where do these dates fit in our timeline?
The children will be looking at different techniques artist use, or have used, to create water affects. They will then create their own masterpieces based on work of different artists.
In outdoor Games we will develop athletics skills whilst indoors we will be following a choice of low cardio workouts.
In RE we will be building on our knowledge of Sikhism and look at specific Sikh festivals in more detail.
