Red Pandas (Y3/4)
Welcome to RED PANDAS!
We are the amazing Year 3 & Year 4 class at Poolsbrook Academy Primary. Miss Elliott is the teacher and Miss Ryan is our fantastic teaching assistant.
This half term’s geography enquiry question is 'Who owns the World's water? As part of this enquiry questions we will learn are:
A county is a large area of land (which includes cities) that divides up a country.
A region is an area, especially part of a country or the world having definable characteristics but not always fixed boundaries.
To know that most cities are located near river because the river is a water source for farming and transport, this means that a town would never go hungry and they good trade good easier.
The physical features of a river include - Source: where a river starts in higher ground, usually a spring, although some rivers flow from lakes or reservoirs (and also glaciers) - River mouth: the end of a river where it meets the coast and drains into the sea, or sometimes a lake - Tributary: a smaller river, or stream, which flows into a larger river.
To know the water cycle involves the exchange of energy, which leads to temperature changes. When water evaporates, it takes up energy from its surroundings and cools the environment. When it condenses, it releases energy and warms the environment.
In English we are reading 'The Egyptian Cinderella' text and will be learning how to write: a character description, setting description, an adventure story, non-chronological report, explanation test and a persuasive write.
We will continue to develop our love of reading by reading widely across the curriculum, getting the chance to experience a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction texts. We are aiming to read 3 x per week at home.
In Maths we will be learning about: place value, addition and subtraction. We are focusing on our times tables through Timestables Rockstars, which can also be accessed at home with log-ins provided to the children.
PE is on Mondays and could be indoor or outdoor weather pending :)
