Under and Over the Sea

Year 3:

In Year 3 we are taking inspiration from our two class reads for this term, ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ and ‘The Mousehole Cat’, both of which have links with the ocean.

We will be looking at the history of Easter Island, as it is mentioned in ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’, creating a timeline of famous explorers. Also we will focus on the geography of Easter Island and Mousehole – we will use Atlases to find locations and then look at the human and physical features. There will be opportunities for different art activities, such as collage, clay work and painting as well as DT in creating healthy food (for Healthy Eating Week). We are also hoping to create our own lighthouses in DT and with our work in science focused on light we are hoping to even make our light houses light up!

In Year 3 this term we will be taking part in the Hull Singing Days 2018 and get the chance to perform at City Hall. We will spend a lot of time making sure that we know all of the songs.

We look forward to celebrating our end of term event with you, showcasing some wonderful singing and performance across the entire school!

Year 4:

Year 4 will be basing their learning around their two texts ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ and ‘A Bear and a Boy in a Boat’.

Similar to Year 3, Year 4 will start their learning journey with ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’. They will explore the history of Easter Island and create timelines of famous explorers using their research to help them plot them using the correct centuries. There will be geography work done on different locations and understanding of human and physical features and the affect this has on that place. We will also have different art activities, like working with clay to create sculptures and painting.

We will be taking part in the Big Blow Concert for celebrating our work with learning a brass instrument this year. This will be at the City Hall and we hope as many people as possible can come and watch.
