Welcome to the ‘Classroom of Faith!’
We are the year 3 and 4 children of Chirton School and as usual we have a very busy year ahead of us. We are starting this year exploring the wonderful works of Anthony Browne and his book What If. We are using his beautiful illustrations to inspire us in our landscape and cityscape art, linking this to our geography learning about our local environment. Later this year, travelling back in time as we will be exploring the Stone Age and discovering what it was like to live among mammoths and sabre tooth tigers. We will then link this to our science learning about animals and how they adapt to their environment. As always our maths learning will be interwoven into all that we do as we continue to learn and master formal written methods and apply these to solve different types of problems.
As an extra challenge this year, Faith Class have been tasked with building a new bridge to cross the stream to the Reflection Island in our forest school. We will need to put our DT skills to work in order to cut the wood and create a structure which will withstand the weather and lots of footfall. Our science knowledge will also be needed as we have to consider how to make the stream flow again following a new route.
As always in Faith Class we are incredibly lucky to be supported in our learning by lots of wonderful people including our sports coaches, big heart helpers and lots of other volunteers. If you would like to come and help us please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you in our classroom soon.
