Y3/4 Spring Term 2018

Curriculum Overview Spring 2018

During the first half of the Spring Term the children in year 3 and 4 will be learning about the Tudor period in History. They will be learning about the Tudor monarchs and the historical changes that occurred.  The children will be learning about how The Battle of Bosworth began the Tudor Reign.  They will also learn about King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I and the everyday lives of people in Carlisle during that time, including Tudor Houses. They will study the paintings of the artists Hans Holbein and Nicholas Hilliard.

During the second half of the Spring Term the children will learn about the body in the Science topic 'Body Zone'.  They will be taught about the main body parts associated with the skeleton and muscles, finding out how different parts of the body have special functions.  They will work scientifically and research different food groups and how they keep us healthy. They will learn about the main body parts associated with the digestive system identifying different teeth and their functions.

Your child will continue to be given weekly spellings on a Monday to be learnt at home. These will be tested in school on a Friday.  It would be beneficial to child if you could continue to find time to listen to your child read on a daily basis. Please sign your child’s reading record to confirm you have listened to them read. Cummersdale cash will be awarded to your child for regular reading at home.  Your child will also be given a set of times tables to learn weekly, and there will be a tables test on Friday; this will include a variety of tables to increase their accuracy and speed. Cummersdale cash will be awarded for correct spellings and tables in the weekly tests. Maths, English and work linked to the topic they are studying may also be given as homework at other times.

Ed Taylor from Carlisle Cathedral will continue to come in to school to take Singing Practice. The children will be preparing for the Carlisle Music Festival which will be the first time Cummersdale have entered a choir in this event.

As in the Autumn Term your child should bring their P.E. kit which should be named into school on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday.   They may also bring a water bottle which should also be named.
