Term 2 Week 2

It has been another busy week for us this term and we have been enjoying our new topic Land, Sea and Sky. In our Literacy we have been learning about debating and have researched the impacts of deforestation and logging on the environment in order to prepare reasoned arguments for a class debate. We then used this information to create a persuasive poster to help stop people from destroying our rainforests around the world. 

In Maths, Year 4 have been looking at their times tables and finding ways to use the 3 x table to help us learn the 6 x table. Year 3 have also been learning their times table facts, and have been using their knowledge of arrays to help remember and learn the 3 x table. 

In our science lesson we have been looking at how animals are classified according to their characteristics. We looked at how animals can be grouped into: mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish,  and how we can tell which is which. 

In our PE we have been learning to explore vaulting and including our shape of jumps to practice landing with control.
