Welcome to Penguins Class
The Penguins class is taught by Mrs Prince on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Marshall teaches on Thursday and Friday.
We are a mixed age class of year 3 and year 4.
We are fortunate to be able to have an additional teacher, Miss Sherrell every morning. Miss Sherrell will be taking Year 4 for maths in the Rhino Classroom. This will be of great benefit to all the class, allowing each year group to be taught as a single age group.
During the SpringTerm the children will be using our Talk for Writing Skills to discover stories set in imaginary worlds such as the classic 'Stig of the Dump' and others such as 'Hetti Dreaming' and 'Alien Landing'. The children will explore the stories and the main characters and then in turn will make imaginative changes which will help them to write their own story set in an imaginary world.
Later on in the term, the children will be learning about performance poetry and the children will read and recognise the key features of the aforementioned before writing their own using interesting and carefully chosen vocabulary.
Our topic this term is called 'Set In Stone'
This term we will be looking into history from Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be attempting to answer such questions as, "How can we use archaeology to learn about this period?" and "How creative were these early people?"
In our Science lessons we will be investigating what 'Humans Fit For Success' look like. We will be learning about the body and how to keep ourselves fit and healthy. Later on in the term we will be exploring 'Are these Your Teeth'.
Topic lessons will be History based for the first part of the Spring term with an emphasis on learning about life during this period. We will be learning about the impact of farming during the Stone Age and also looking into chronology.
At the beginning of each half term the children should complete at least three activities from the grid. Written work must be presented neatly in your homework book. Creative work can be presented in any way of your choosing. Homework will be discussed on Fridays, but it will not be necessary to bring in the work until the date on the sheet.

We will also send weekly spellings home every Wednesday which will be tested on the following Wednesday morning. Don't forget to logon to Mathletics each week.
