Ash Class

Ash Class Curriculum Summer Term 1 2018

During the summer term, Ash Class will explore the question “What is the cycle of life?” As part of this we will look at plants, be able to name the different parts, understand the lifecycle and what plants need for healthy growth. It is hoped that children will plant and nurture their own sapling. The work of Monet will be explored in Art, linking to this topic. Expect the children to create their own water lily scene!

Our English will examine explanation texts and poetry. Key learning will address use of paragraphs in writing, building independence with this difficult concept. Grammar work will explore:

  • Conjunctions
  • Suffixes and prefixes
  • Comparative and superlative adjectives
  • Plurals
  • Tenses
  • Subordinate clauses
  • Punctuation incl. speech marks, CAPITAL letters, commas, question marks, possessive and contractive apostrophes

Weekly spelling tests will continue, with all children having made good progress so far.

In Maths, we will continue with our daily practise of times tables. Our aim is for every Yr 3 child to know their 2, 5, 10, 4 and 8 by the end of Summer Term. Yr 4 children should aim to also recall their 6, 7 and 9 times tables. The children will begin to derive corresponding division facts.  In addition, children will learn roman numerals, weight, reflection and symmetry. We will also revisit our work on time to help children learn minutes past and minutes to. Further consolidation will be made on fractions.

RE will examine the Hindu festival of Divali, helping the children to understand what happens during the festival and how these shared celebrations being about a sense of belonging / community.

PE will allow the children to develop their cricket and athletic skills.
