Falcon Class Year 3 and 4

Falcon Class


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.
