Jupiter – Years 3 & 4

Welcome to Jupiter Class

JUPITER Curriculum Overview 2017-2018

Our topic for this term is ‘Rainforests’. Children will be researching the history of rainforests, locating them on maps and writing information texts on the animals that can be found in a rainforest. In maths, we will be exploring place value of digits, using all four operations of number and collecting and presenting data in a number of different ways.

Our science focus will be on plants and rocks. We will learn the roles of parts of the plants, investigate what seeds need to grow and how they get dispersed.

Children will be taking part in PE lessons every Tuesday morning and must remember to bring in a suitable PE kit and shoes (all labelled) in order to fully join in with these sessions. Please also remember that homework will be sent home on Thursdays and is due back in class on the following Wednesday morning. Please also remember to read with your child for at least 20 minutes every evening and to sign their reading record with any comments.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Bucknall and Silvana Grazioli
