Lower Key Stage Two - Years 3 / 4
Summer 2 2018
Theme Launch - Amazing Amazon
On Wednesday 6th June 2018, Year 3/4 launched their new Rainforest theme in style! The children started the day by going on a ‘flight’ to a place that they had probably never visited before …… the Amazon Rainforest!
Upon arrival, the children then proceeded to learn a little about some of the animals and plants that live in a tropical rainforest. They then created their own rainforest animals (using paper plates, tissue paper, pipe cleaners, etc.), as well as helped to construct a tree to form part of a rainforest area in their classrooms.
The day ended with the children entering a ‘Rainforest Sensory Area’. In here the children were able to experience some of the sights and sounds that they might encounter in a real rainforest. They also gained a sense of what the temperature might be like in this area of the world.
The children’s explorations during this day have now given them a real desire to learn even more about the Amazon Rainforest.
Amazing Amazon - Summer 2 Term Theme
This is our last theme for the year. Throughout this vibrant theme, children will use their geographical and science enquiry skills to investigate and learn about the amazing Amazon rainforest and the incredible diversity it supports!
We will launch Amazing Amazon with a Rainforest Sensory Area at Manor Field Primary School itself! This will give the children the opportunity to experience the sounds, sights and feelings associated with a rainforest.
We will also be hoping to arrange for some rainforest animals to come and visit the school to help to bring the learning to life even more!
Summer 1 2018
Year 3 and 4 are learning about Ancient China.
Our fourth theme will allow the children to discover the world of Ancient China. Each week the children will look at an invention and the impact it had then and now.
The children will look at a culture, rich in tradition, and a landscape full of beauty.
They will begin their learning journey by being immersed in the Chinese culture through experiencing delicious, authentic Chinese cuisine.
We are also hoping to provide a taster session of the disciplined art of Kung Fu to further immerse the children in this theme.
