Welcome to Acorns' Class Page
Welcome to the Acorn's class page. Here you will find lots of information about what we are doing in school and the different topics that we are learning.
It has been a fantastic year of learning so far, we have been Antarctic explorers, inventors, archeologists and now we are moving on to our new topic of The Amazon.
Forest Schools is in full swing and it is now the turn of the Year 4s to wander into the woods to learn lots of new skills.
In Literacy this term we are going to be spending some time reading and researching about issues that the Amazon Rainforest is facing. By reading the stories of the people who live there we will be able to get insight into what life is like for both the tribes who inhabit the forests and the people who need to make a living from what it provides.
The story There is a rang-tan in my room along with the Iceland advert that portrayed the same story will also be used in our reading and writing sessions as a starting point for persuasive letter writing and balanced arguments.
We will also be building up our reading, writing and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) skills that will build to help us become the best writers!
In Maths the Year 4s will spend the term investigating length, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals and the Year 3s will be learning about money, statistics and length and perimeter . We will continue our TTRockstars challenge. We as a staff could not be prouder of the effort that the class have put in to their times tables. The Year 4s will be practising hard for their multiplication test which they are taking this term. Keep working hard on them at home too please.
Science and Topic
In Science it is going to be all about humans and other animals. Through our investigations we will learn how our digestive system works as well as comparing it with other.
We will also be looking at how to keep our teeth healthy and why oral hygiene is so important.
In Topic this term we will be looking at The Amazon Rainforest. We wil be looking at the layers of the forests, the animals and plants that call it their home as well as how the position of the rainforests on the Earth affects the climate.
