Welcome Back to Acorns' Class Page
Welcome to all the new Year 3s and welcome back to our Year 4s.
We have got an incredibly exciting year ahead of us. There are fantastic and fun whole school topics and we have got trips and visitors planned to help us with our learning.
We also have our residential to look forward to. Castleton is a fantastic place for us all to really get to know each other and practise skills such as panning for gems, fossil hunting and learning how to be a Celtic warrior.
We are looking forward to getting our teeth in the Forest Schools ethos as Mrs Hinde and Mrs O'Hara have had their Level 3 training and we have been fortunate enough to gain access to an area of woodland that is perfect for practising our forest school skills.
In Literacy this term we are going to be writing stories and looking at how to create interesting characters and settings using adventurous language. Our focus book is Ug - Boy Genius of the Stone Age which fits with our whole school topic focusing on that time period.
Science and Topic
In Science it is going to be all about animals and where they live. We will look at why polar bears live where they do and why some penguins can be found in the desert. Habitats is a fascinating area to look at and we might even get to build some new habitats for bugs!
In Topic this term we will become time travelers and go back to the time of the Stone Age. What did a cave man eat? Where did he live? What was he afraid of and would we be able to survive if we had to live in a cave? We will find the answers to these, and lots of other questions by investigating and researching.
