Year 3 and 4
Summer Term 2021
Before we inform you of activities and events that will be happening in Year 3 and 4 during the Summer, we would first of all like to welcome you- we hope that we will all be able to work together in the spirit of our school motto:
'Together with Christ Everyone Achieves More'.
As the school term develops, we will post information and examples of the children’s work on the Year 3 and 4 pages of the school website or our school Twitter account.
Welcome back! We hope that you had a restful break!
As we enter the final term of our academic year all of our learning will be based on the topic ‘Rainforests’.
Tag Rugby has now ended and the children will be taking part in their P.E. lessons on Tuesdays. (They will still need to come to school in their outdoor kit for these sessions)
Swimming (y4) and basketball (y3) will continue to be taught on a Wednesday afternoon.

Þ I can use fronted adverbials and use a comma afterwards.
Þ I can evaluate and edit by proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentences.

Following the Easter holidays, the children will be introduced to accounts of the Resurrection appearances of Christ in the four Gospels. They will learn about the different reactions of people to the news that Christ was alive. In this unit the children will study the story of the Ascension and will learn about Christian belief in the presence of Christ in the world today. Then the children will learn about the prayer life of Jesus as he grew up in the Jewish faith. The children will be introduced to some prayers from the Old Testament and they will consider the importance Jesus attached to prayer. We will also study the story of Pentecost and identify the effects that it had upon the disciples.
Pupils should be taught to:
