Saturn Class Year 3/4

 Welcome to Saturn Class. Mrs Santinelli is our class teacher and Mrs Bianchi supports us with our learning. 
Welcome back to an exciting term ahead for Saturn Class.
Our topic this term is Anglo Saxons, starting with the fall of the Roman Empire. We will be visiting St.Edmundsbury Cathedral as part of our topic activities.
In English & Literacy we begin with writing adventure stories before moving on to shape poems. Spellings are on a Friday and results will be recorded in the children's planners.
In Maths we will continue to focus on key areas; problem solving, shape, space, measure, number and data handling, whilst developing our understanding of formal written methods for calculations. It is a statutory requirement that all children have rapid recall knowledge of their times tables, up to 12x12, so consistent practise at home is vital!
During our Science this term we will focus on light & sound. Exploring shadows and their formations and how sounds and vibrations change with volume and pitch.
In our DT lessons we aim to create our own musical instruments based on Anglo Saxon evidence.
In Saturn class we explore exciting topics each term, including: The Egyptians, Stone Age Man, Eco Planet, Romans, Greeks and Anglo Saxons. Using a cross curricular approach to our learning helps us to become fully immersed with our topics. We have access to our own outdoor area which becomes an extension of our classroom.
