Welcome to Conqueror!

Our teachers are called Miss Garner and Miss Atkinson. We also have Miss Smith supporting us.

Currently we have chosen to learn more about animals and will be deciding our main question and creating our topic web this week!

 

What we are doing this term..

Conqueror will be using the topic of animals to explore different areas of the curriculum. We hope to work together to find exciting ways to do this.

If you have any ideas, please let us know!

We need our PE kit on a Thursday.

Numeracy

This term, we will be looking at place value and using the four operations to solve problems, including some reasoning problems. 

Times tables targets -

Year 3 - Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3s, 4s and 8s.

Year 4 - Recall and use multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12.

Reading

Reading is very important all the way through school and Year 3 is when children really start to take responsibility for their own home reading books. Please encourage your children to read each day and to remember to bring their home reading book into school. They can change their book themselves when they feel they can read and understand it.

Remember - you do not have to just read your home reading book! Newspapers, Kindles, comics and even the ingredient lists on food all count!

Our author for this half term is Liz Pichon.

Who would you choose to be your class author?

Writing

This term, Conqueror will be focusing on narrative (story writing) and non-fiction texts that support their research on animals. We will also be looking at grammar, developing our knowledge of punctuation.

The Year 3 and 4 spelling list is attached below.
