Welcome to the Cuttlefish Class page!

 

We are a Year 3 & 4 class.

Our class teacher is Mrs Banks.

 

 


Learning activities Term 1

Our topic this term is ‘Where in the world is Rye?" As you can imagine, it has a strong Geography focus. The children will be learning about the European continent. They will do a country study and compare Rye with a different European town, looking at physical and human geographical features.

Our main texts this term are ‘The house of the Cats: and other tales from Europe' and 'The Hunter' by Paul Geraghty. These books support the work we will do in English, Geography and Science. We will be reading traditional tales from various European countries. We will be writing an alternative version of a traditional tale, a report about a European country and a folk tale.  

In science lessons, we will be learning about all living things: nutrition, food chains, skeletons and muscles, with a particular focus on animals we find in Europe.  

More details about the learning focus in this term will be posted in the newsletter.

Year 3 and 4 Target Tracker Statements

When looking at the Year 3 & 4 objective posters, if you focus on the 'I can...' statements, this is what your child should be able to do by the end of the year in Year 3 & 4 when following the National Curriculum.

  • Take turns to make plans and predictions before reading: ‘I wonder if… what do you think?’ ‘You think… Oh, I thought…’ 
  • Recap to check ideas and understanding as your child is reading: ‘So, you think that…’ ‘Did you expect…to happen?’ ‘Why do you think that happened?’
  • Use encouragement and praise to keep children engaged in reading: ‘What brilliant ideas…let’s see what happens.’ ‘You thought so carefully about... What might happen now?’
  • Share prior knowledge and past experiences that link to what is being read: ‘Have you learnt about…at school?’ ‘Do you remember when we watched…and found out about…’
  • Tune-in and listen to your child – be curious about their interests: ‘I didn’t know you knew so much about…’ ‘I love reading stories about...with you.’

At school we use the Reading Rainbow to give children a reading focus (a lens to read with) and sentence starters to answer questions.
