Year 3 and 4 Autumn Term 2022 A very warm welcome to the class of Year 3 and 4. The class teacher is Miss Elan Jones. Mrs Bethan Petrie will be taking the class on a Wednesday morning and concentrating on developing reading skills. Miss Einir Jones will be teaching the class on a Wednesday afternoon. Throughout this term we will be focusing on the theme of “Celebrations”. Here is a brief description of what we will be studying in each of the areas of learning and experience: Languages, Literacy and Communication: As a part of our class routine, we will be completing our work through the medium of Welsh for two weeks and then through the medium of English for another two weeks. We will discuss, read and learn how to write a report, speech, instructions, poster, rules, invitation and so on. Our book for this term will be ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl and we will be reading the book in Welsh and English depending on what week corresponds. Additionally, we will have “Read, Write, Inc” sessions each morning in order to develop and improve the learner’s English spelling skills. Mathematics and Numeracy: The main units we will be concentrating on this half term will be adding and subtracting, place value, temperature, data work, estimation, mathematic reasoning and developing mental maths skills. We will then move on to develop different skills after the half term. Science and Technology: Throughout the term we will study the food chain, the ecosystem and we will also get the chance to prepare, cook and taste a homemade soup made with the vegetables in the garden. The Humanities: We will be studying the history of Owain Glyndŵr, the effect that recycling has on the planet, how different cultures celebrate weddings and Christmas, research into some old traditions such as ‘Guto Ffowc’, Halloween and plenty more. We will also focus on celebrating ourselves as individuals as well as other cultures around the world. Health and Well-being: Every Thursday, we will have our physical education lesson where we will focus on practising and developing football skills for the first half of the term. Throughout the rest of the term, we will concentrate on developing gymnastics skills. Additionally, the learners will also get a chance to complete the “milltir fawr – the big mile” twice a week to ensure that we improve our physical and mental health. In addition to keeping ourselves fit and healthy, there will be a strong emphasis on how to have a good relationship with your mental health. We will discuss issues such as anxiety, bullying and celebrate how we are all different in our own way. At the root of our health and well-being lessons, we will learn about the connection between a healthy body and a healthy mind. Expressive Arts: We will start by creating various artworks out of recycled materials. Additionally, we will get the chance to compose and perform a piece of music for a wedding. Drama skills will be a natural part of our classroom through their oral and performance work. Digital Competence: Digital competence is a very powerful skill to develop towards the future and I will be ensuring that the learners will get plenty of experience to research independently and develop basic computer skills. Homework: The children will receive mathematics homework every two weeks and in between, they will receive homework based on our theme of “celebrations”. The homework will be set each Friday and is also expected to be completed by the following Friday. We look forward to having a busy and fun time with the children and thank you very much for your support.
