Year 3/4 - Black Rhinos
Welcome to our mixed Y3/4 Black Rhino class!
Hello, I’m Naomi and I am lucky enough to be teaching Rhino class this year at Parklands Educate Together.
In Year 3/4, our curriculum is enriching, meaningful and active so that our children can become fully immersed in their learning. The children will learn through a series of well-planned and sequenced lessons to engage children in their broad range of learning opportunities.
This year in Black Rhinos, we are covering a variety of fascinating topics including:
- Term 1: Respecting Rainforests
- Term 2: Rotten Roman Britain
- Term 3: Coastal Cousins
- Term 4: Wild Weather
- Term 5: A Tale of Three Piers
- Term 6: Angry Aztecs
Please feel free to look at our topic web as it details the key learning points and vocabulary for our topics this term.
For maths, I am lucky enough to teach all of the Year 4’s for maths this year, while Melody and Megan teach all of the Year 3’s. Splitting the year groups last year was a big success and we look forward to working this way with your children this year.
Our PE slots will be Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings in/wears PE appropriate clothing to school.
Home learning is focused on spellings, developing a love for reading, independent research on our topic of the term, diary and creative writing independently, and times tables practices. They will receive their new spellings on a Friday and have one week to practice these before a test the following Friday.
All children have Times Tables Rockstars logins for them to practice at home. This website, along with www.timestables.co.uk, allows them to be able to practice and improve their knowledge, accuracy and speed when working with times tables. This will ultimately help them when working through their maths topics in class.
Year 4 have their times tables test in June so we advise practicing those times tables as frequently as possible!
