St Nicholas C of E Primary School East Challow
A caring community where all pupils are valued and achieve well.
Falcon Class Year 3 and 4
During our time in Falcons we have the opportunity to take part in a range of extra-curricular activities
including participating in the Vale Academy Trust Singing Festival
and a one night residential to Hillend.
The children also have the chance to take part in inter-school sporting activities.
The children continue to develop fluency in times-tables through Times Tables Rockstars
and start to use the Accelerated Reader to ensure they are reading at an appropriate level of challenge.
Swimming is first taught in Falcons and the children are also introduced to a Spanish.
Spring Term Update: Spanish Garden
During Science lessons will be learning all about what plants needs in order to grow well
and will consider which parts of different plants we eat.
In Geography we will be looking at climate across Europe and studying Spain in depth.
We will find out about why there are different regional dishes,
even within the same country, and will have a go at making a couple of them.
Much of our time this term will be taken up with preparing for our Easter Celebration
which will be a play based on Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant.
We will learn the story in English and then write persuasive letters in role
to the giant asking him to let us play in his garden.
In Whole Class Reading we will share the book The Paperbag Prince by Colin Thompson
and compare the main character to the giant.
In addition to learning a couple of songs for our play,
the children will also continue with their weekly practice sessions with Mr Campbell
for the singing festival at the end of term.
Finally, in maths, we will be learning about fractions, shapes and measures
to help us with both our cooking and in planning an edible garden for the giant.
