St Andrew's Autumn 1 Newsletter

Please find below our newsletter for this half term which tells you what we will be covering until October half term.

We love to read!

Please do take  look at what the favourite books are in our class and why don't you try reading some of my favourite 5's as well! 
 
Harvest Rap!

We worked together to produce a rap about Harvest as a time of giving to others less fortunate. The children had amazing ideas and then wrote the finished work up in best. This is a small selection.

My Fab 5!

It was tricky choosing just 5!

Maths

The children are using concrete resources and pictorial representations to understand our first and vital topic - place value. As well as continuing to count in multiples and practising our times tables. We have begun to look at negative numbers with Year 4.

English - spelling

The children have been practising their common exception words and testing each other!

Year 3 and 4 common exception words
RE

Our topic this half term is 'The Bible'. The children have been learning about its structure and studying stories from the Old Testament. We acted out the story of Abraham and Sarah, as well as miming some of our favourite stories. The children also drew extracts from the story of Moses.

Geography

The children have been studying the local area, researching the landmarks of Pudsey and creating a class map of our town. They have been learning how to read maps and identify the key features in them. We are also looking at the counties of England; the major cities of the UK and the human and physical features of Yorkshire using atlases and digital technology.

French

The children are learning conversational French!

Virtues Week

Our class virtue is charity. The children read Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo and focused on how two young evacuees used the virtue of charity to help two stranded Germans during the Second World War. They created a news report which they then presented to the rest of the school. They wrote prayers with the theme of charity. Finally they used the work from the artist Hannah Dunnett as inspiration to create a canvas on charity.

Settling In!

At the start of term the children re- acquaint themselves with the class rules; as well as learning about their class saint. We also spent more time this year talking about the importance of hand hygiene.
