Welcome to the
Snow Leopard Class webpage...
For 2018-19, Snow Leopard Class is a mixed Year Three and Year Four class. We follow a three year rolling programme of learning that enables us to ensure that children do not unnecessarily encounter the same learning twice, whilst ensuring that the knowledge and skills for each subject are taught. The children’s own interests are incorporated within our themes, thus making their learning more personal and relevant.
As our Year Four children are the oldest in the school, they have the opportunity to take on more responsibilities to help our school run smoothly.
Monday 18th March - Friday 22nd March
We are learning how to write discussion texts at the moment. A discussion text introduces an issue, impartially tells the reader about opposing opinions and then comes to a conclusion based on the evidence. We are linking our discussion texts to our science theme: Materials Matter. This week, we are using a text about wave and tidal power (which we looked at in detail last week) to help us write a discussion text about solar power.
This week we are learning about converting units of measure. We are learning how to convert between: pence and pounds, centimetres and metres, metres and kilometres, grams and kilograms and millilitres and litres.
