Year 3 and 4 Home Learning 25/1/19 – 13/2/19
The Year 3 and 4 classrooms have had the aroma of a Greek restaurant for the past two days as we have all made and tasted a Greek Salad! Some of us liked all of it, some were less keen on the olives and red onion and some of us really didn’t like it at all! Some of us were really surprised at how good it all tasted together!
Year 3 and 4 – don’t forget, we have ‘Team Extreme’ coming in to school to work with us on Monday – if you haven’t bought your permission form in yet, make sure you bring it in on Monday. Both the permission slip and disclaimer form are available on the school website – Parents Area, letters.
Year 3 and 4 collaborated this afternoon to create prototypes of our Stomp Rockets! I wonder if they will fly?! Find out later!
Year 3 and 4 completed their learning journey about China by sharing their Chinese Dragon Dances with their parents.
|Task 1 – Reading
We are having a big push on reading stories and listening to stories being read to us. Where do you like to read when you are at home? Take a photo of yourself reading in your favourite place – why do you like to read there?
You can print your photo or email it to your class teacher:
|Task 2 – SOLE
We have just started our new topic ‘Our Journey to China’. Next week we will be creating our own Terracotta Army! Your homework is to find out some interesting facts about the Terracotta Army, presented on a piece of A4 paper, ready to add to your SOLE reflections later in the term.
Key questions: Who created the Terracotta Army? Where were they found? Who found them? What is unusual about the Terracotta Army?
Don’t forget to draw pictures or add images from the Internet.
Don’t forget to add the correct punctuation!
