YEAR 3 & 4 CURRICULUM
Summer Term Learning Challenge Curriculum
What would my life have been like at school in 1900?
We will be continuing with our history-based topic in which children will investigate what life would be like without television and electronic gadgets. Children will:
Find out about school, work, leisure and entertainment for children
Consider clothing and fashion and compare it to today
Investigate films and television from the past
Children will use old photographs and current technology to create artwork
What’s The Buzz?
During the final 3 weeks of term, both year groups will be taking part in a whole school theme, "Dream Big" which is all about engineering. We will be learning about shelters and will have plenty of opportunity to design and construct our own structures. It promises to be an exciting end to the year!
This term, Year 3 will continue investigating forces including magnets to answer the Learning Challenge question 'Are you attractive enough?' We will also investigate the forces that are around us, recording and presenting what we have found using scientific language.

Homework and Reading
The homework for this half term may be found here.
There is an expectation that your child completes at least three twenty minute reading sessions a week at home. This can be independent, reading to an adult, on Bug Club or a mixture of reading and book discussion with an adult.
In addition to this, the children will know from their maths lessons which times table they need to practise and they need to do this at home twice a week. For the completion of the above tasks, children will be awarded three stars.
The link to home work for this half term may be found above. The tasks are purposefully simplistic to allow the children to direct their own learning and whilst parental support is encouraged, the work must be completed by the child. Please do not feel that you should go to extra effort or spend hours on these tasks; the children can complete as much or as little work on the chosen topic as they would like to do. We would like to ensure they enjoy these tasks and learn something new!
The homework diary can also be used as a means of communication between yourself and your child's teachers. Teachers will sign diaries every week and we ask that you also sign the diary weekly.
