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 19th November - Friday 23rd November
We are learning about recount writing again this week: we will apply our knowledge of the features of a diary recount when working independently to write a diary entry. This is linked to our theme learning about ancient Egypt - we will watch video clips about the life of a worker and make this into his diary entries.
This week we are learning how to use the formal column method for multiplication and the short method of division (the 'bus-stop' method).
What are we learning this half-term?
Our theme this half-term is...
