Welcome to Great Turquoise Railway, our role play area.

We're learning how to tell the time.

We need your help!

In the new term, we'll be working on a few really fun art and design projects.  However, we need you to bring in a few items from home to help us do this.  

Helpful items are:

  • Old, clean socks in black or white
  • Newspaper
  • 1L and 2L empty bottles
  • Card tubes from kitchen rolls 

It wouldn't hurt to bring an old t-shirt to change into as well,  as sometimes these projects will be a little messy.  (Ms. Abbott's kitchen needed a serious cleaning after paper maché practice!)

Half Term Homework

Looking to get a head start on the new term?  

Homework ideas:

Maths Make a poster with different ways to represent fractions.  Pizzas?  Ice creams?  Sharing with brothers and sisters?
Writing Imagine that you have performed a heroic act. Your name and picture have appeared in local and national newspapers. What heroic act did you perform? What happened and who was involved? Tell the story of your heroic deed in the form of a recount or newspaper report.
Reading Get caught reading in an unusual place (Google: 'reading in unusual places' for help) and bring a photo of it to class for the class display.  Or you can email it to Ms. Abbott jabbott@ranikhet.reading.sch.uk and she'll print it.
Theme We're looking at heroes and villains this term. Make a collage portrait of different heroes in history such as Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Theresa, Gandhi, et cetera. Remember to use a range of different materials.
Science  What are fruits and vegetables?  Where do they come from? Where can we buy fruits and vegetables? We're looking at nutrition this term.  Create a poster either inform our classmates about fruit and vegetable facts or persuade them that they need to eat fruits and vegetables. 

 

Famous scientists and inventors

We will be learning about famous scientists and inventors this term.  

If you choose to do a fact file on a scientist or inventor for homework, this website might help with your research.

Turquoise's Tuesdays at Battle Library

Battle Library, 420 Oxford Road Reading RG30 1EE

Starting 12th of April, Ms. Abbott is going to the library right after school and she’ll be there until 5pm. If she sees you there, you get a prize
Make sure you are accompanied by a suitable adult, as Ms. Abbott cannot be responsible for you at the library (sorry, the adult doesn't
 get a prize).

 

Can’t make it to the library on Tuesdays? No worries! Simply bring the library slip to class showing you’ve signed out a book from the library to claim your prize. 

See you at the library!

Robots

This term in year 3 and 4 our theme is Robots.  We will be learning about electricity, magnets and famous scientists from history. 

Children will be investigating how and why magnets stick to different objects and making dancing snakes.

We will be making models of robots in design technology. 

In PE this term we will be budding Andy Murrays and Laura Robsons, learning how to play tennis.  In French, we are learning the vocabulary linked to our friends and families.  In computing, we are using a program called Scratch which teaches us about programming. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please make sure you read your books every night and learn your time tables.

 

 

Enjoy the term.  Let's hope the sun comes out!!!!!   

Oktapodi

We'll be basing our writing next week on this video. What do you think the two octopi are thinking in each scene? Bring your ideas to class. 

Exciting things for our new term! We'll be learning about robots and famous scientists from all over the world! Ask your carers or parents if they know the song 'Mr. Roboto' or if the they know how to do the Robot dance!

We'll be looking at Robots! This is Mr. Roboto!

We finished our term on Ancient Greece by working with clay to make themed dishes.

Medusa's snakes go around the outside of this dish
A H for Hercules
A dish with Zeus' lightning bolt in the middle

We've done great research about earthquakes and volcanoes!

 

This week we have been writing with lots of description. The children did really well at describing pictures and stories by using a good variety of adjectives. 

 

This week the children wrote targets of what they hope to achieve in their maths work. Addition and subtraction has gone well.
