Year 3 and 4 - Blwyddyn 3 a 4
Welcome to our Class Page!
Croeso i'n Tudalen Dosbarth!
Spring Term 2024 | Tymor y Gwanwyn 2024
During the Spring term Blwyddyn 3/4 will be studying the following topic:
Children will be learning about different celebrations. We will look at what we celebrate here in the UK and Wales, as well as different celebrations from around the world.
We will have a large focus on Welsh celebrations, looking at Dydd Santes Dwynwen, Saint David’s Day and Dydd Miwsig Cymru. We will be expressing our opinions in Welsh as well as writing reports about St. David.
We will also look at the Chinese New Year by listening to stories, writing our own stories and creating Chinese New Year lanterns and dragons.
We will investigate fireworks in science this term, looking at the chemical reactions and make our own ‘Fireworks in a Jar’.
In Mathematics and Numeracy this term, we will be focusing on our times-tables, measuring area and perimeter, as well as multiplying and dividing numbers. Regular times-tables practise at home will aid this greatly.
We will also be taking our learning outdoors whenever possible.
Homework tasks will be set weekly and will be sent home in homework books every Friday. Homework is to be returned the following Wednesday.
Termly spelling words will also be sent home for a test every Friday.
Times table tests will take place every Friday and learners are encouraged to continuously practise their times tables at home.
Reading books and records can be brought to school daily and will be returned home every evening. Learners have the opportunity to read independently every day in school and with an adult throughout the week. Learners are encouraged to read every evening (even just for 5 minutes) as this will have a great impact on their progress.
PE will take place every Wednesday. Pupils are asked to arrive to school wearing their PE clothes.
Pupils are encouraged to bring water bottles (containing only water) to drink throughout the day and a healthy snack, such as fruit, for breaktime.
Thank you for your continued support.
Diolch yn fawr,
Mr Patterson and Mrs White
