Silver Birch Class - Y3/4 2020-2021

Curriculum Information to give a flavour of learning

Mr Pinard teaches Year 3 and 4 and firmly believes in combining hard work with extremely exciting and interesting learning opportunities. This year our curriculum is laden with thrilling topics including Dig a Little Deeper looking at life during the Stone Age, The Movies looking at how movies have changed over times including the locations in which they were filmed and Hundred Acre Wood looking at local history and geography.

Mr Pinard is also very ably supported by Mrs Grimshaw and Mrs Parsons, who provide a valuable supportative role for all of the children in Silver Birch Class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.


Dig a Little Deeper Term 1

During the Autumn term, Silver Birch Class will travel back in time to the Stone Age era. We will find out about life during this time and how the people survived. We will travel through the time looking at how it developed into the Bronze Age and then Iron Age. In science we will be looking at the properties of rock to help us understand some of the limitations that these people would have had and recognising how creative and clever their actually were.

The children are expected to read every night for at least 20 minutes. Over the course of the year, if the children do this, they will have read almost 2 million words. How amazing is that! Just think about how that will help them with so many other things.

They will also be expected to learn spellings and to practise Times Tables. To help them with this, they can use Times Tables Rockstars.
