YEAR 3 & 4 CURRICULUM
Spring Term Learning Challenge Curriculum
Titus Salt: Hero or Villain? This is a study of Local History taking account of a period of history that shaped our locality. We will explore the questions:
• Who were the Victorians?
• Why was the Industrial Revolution important?
• What did William Forster do for us?
• Titus Salt- Hero or Villain?
• How can I use digital images to portray key figures in history?
• What is a Victorian stitch sampler?
Science Year 4 will ask the question, ‘What happens to the food we eat?’ We will learn what the digestive system is, how it works and why it is important. In addition, children will explore the 5 food groups and develop their understanding of a healthy, balanced diet. To finish this topic, we will identify why different animals have different teeth and examine simple food chains. The children will have the opportunity to make an innovative model of the digestive system…

Homework and Reading
There is an expectation that your child completes at least three twenty minute reading sessions a week at home. This can be independent, reading to an adult, on Bug Club or a mixture of reading and book discussion with an adult.
In addition to this, the children will know from their maths lessons which times table they need to practise and they need to do this at home twice a week. For the completion of the above tasks, children will be awarded three stars.
A link for homework for this half term may be found above. The tasks are purposefully simplistic to allow the children to direct their own learning and whilst parental support is encouraged, the work must be completed by the child. Please do not feel that you should go to extra effort or spend hours on these tasks; the children can complete as much or as little work on the chosen topic as they would like to do. We would like to ensure they enjoy these tasks and learn something new!
The homework diary can also be used as a means of communication between yourself and your child's teachers. Teachers will sign diaries every week and we ask that you also sign the diary weekly.
