Peacocks - Year 3/4

One of my favourite books growing up has to be Heidi by Johanna Spyri. I used to love the idea of living in the mountains, just like Heidi (I am sure it's reason I now love going hiking, my most recent holidays being trekking across various mountain ranges all over Europe). The main character, Heidi, is the caring, courageous and funny main character of the story, someone I always related to as a child and I feel she really taught me the value of being a good friend.

I love to read. It takes you to places you may never go and on adventures you may never have. My favourite books are fictional detective style books; reading about all the clues and how they solved the crime. At Christmas, I bought a Kindle which I love as the library is endless! Happy reading!

Mrs Pepperpot Stories by Alf Prøysen is one of my favourite books because I love reading about Mrs Pepperpot's resilience, determination and ingenuity in her approach to her shrinking.

My favourite thing to read is a poem called 'The Tyger' by William Blake which appeals to adults and children alike. Each verse has a tremendous build-up and energy and whenever I read it, I always imagine a tiger's huge paws pounding the earth beneath it like a drum roll. I love the way Blake questions the creation of a creature like the tiger which is so beautiful and majestic yet at the same time, so ferocious and monstrous.

It is great to see all the children back after the summer break. We have lots planned this half term. As always  we will enjoy getting to know our new class over the first few days. In Maths the first topic is Number and Place Value where we will look at different sized numbers and rounding. In English we will be looking at and performing some poetry.
Our topic this term is the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and during the first few days we will practice some Stone Age drawing. In Geography we will learn about maps and compasses and in Science we'll look at how we can classify living things.
We'll keep you updated with everything via Dojo as always and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Many thanks
