September 2018 in Year 3/4

Year 3/4 have had a busy start to the new academic year!

In Science, the children have had opportunities to go to the Forest School. They have been collecting different types of leaves and classifying them. This had been great fun to learn about the different trees that grow in our Forest School.

In Music, we have been exploring action songs and songs sung in rounds. In one of our lessons, we went to the Forest School and sang different songs around a pretend campfire. Also, we have been appreciating music from different eras.

Our history topic has been about Vikings, we have learnt about how they invaded, why they invaded and where they invaded. We have had cross-curricular opportunities with our Art lessons. We have learnt to draw portraits of ourselves and the fierce Vikings!

In the Play Scripts unit, we have created plays from Roald Dahl books, like ‘The Twits’ and ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We got to act these out too!
