Rothwell Victoria Junior School

Indigo Class

Welcome to Indigo Class's page! We are a year 3/4 class with 26 pupils altogether. Our class teacher is Miss Hollick. We are supported by Miss Achall, our teaching assistant and Miss Birch our HLTA.

 

In this half term, up until Christmas, we will be studying the topic of Ancient Egypt. This will begin with a dancing and cartouche making workshop in the second week back. We will be handling artefacts as well as investigating what life was like in these times.

 

 

Core Subjects

English: We will be completing some work the children in Year 3 started at CHR about a video called ‘Something Fishy’ before moving onto some writing based on our text ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’.

Maths: This half term we be starting our maths groups. We will be focusing on place value and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Science: We are focusing on forces and magnets. The children will be able to carry out investigations to develop their understanding of these further.

Foundation subjects

DT and Art: In DT, we will be mummifying a tomato by replicating the conditions used in Ancient Egypt.

Music: In Music we will be  focusing on the soul/gospel song ‘Lean on me’ by Bill Withers. The children will have the opportunity to listen and appraise the music as well as play games to help them develop their sense of rhythm and timing.

French: In French, the Year 3 children will be learning basic greetings and numbers.

PSHE: We will be looking starting the school council before moving onto to work about smoking and how to make healthy choices.

Computing: In Computing, we will be focusing on Google Classrooms in preparation for homework and future lessons.

Religion and World Views: In RE, the Year 3 children will be focusing on Christianity. They will be investigating the question ‘What do Christians believe about a good life? ‘

 

Our school governor is Rachel Ferraby.

Reading records are checked on Monday's and Thursday's to ensure the children have read 5 pages. However, due to the current situation, no reading books will be sent home. Instead, they can use Bug Club and read online but they will also have access to books within school.

Times Tables

Children can use TTRockstars to get extra help with learning their times tables. They can battle each other and set personal challenges in order to recall their times tables faster.

Every week we focus on a times table and the children will get the chance to battle for TT Champion.

This week we are focussing on: 2x 

The children also have a times table book in school.
