Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic WOW day last week, creating their very own totem poles, American Flags and sampling some of Mrs Lynams' and Mrs Hackesons' American pancakes! We finished the day with some baseball on the field and American Hot Dogs with some Toy Story! We're really looking forward to learning more about America and building on our prior knowledge.

AUDIBLE STORIES FOR YOU TO CHILL OUT AND LISTEN TO
 
You all love listening to stories and here is a chance to listen free. Follow the link below and choose the elementary age group link (although there are some classics on the younger listeners e.g. The Just-So Stories). There are some of my favourite classics- Heidi and Black Beauty along with the King Arthur and The Round Table. I wonder what Zero G and Mousenet are like?  
Our project for terms 1 and 2 is Extraordinary Engineering. Which was the hardest to build: The Clifton Suspension Bridge or The Great Pyramid? During this term we will be exploring Banwell looking at evidence of its historical past as well as visiting SS Great Britain designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In term 2 our focus will be on Ancient Egypt and the amazing feats of engineering that they achieved. 
On Tuesday 17th September, Year 3 and 4 went on a fact finding trail around Banwell Village. We were looking for evidence of what Banwell was like in the past and we found plenty of historical artefacts.
Our trip to ss Great Britain and Clifton Suspension Bridge helped us to know more about what a great man Brunel was and we thoroughly enjoyed using our imaginations to understand what it must have been like as a passenger on board the ship en route to Australia. We also learned how The Clifton Suspension Bridge was built. 
We made ships biscuits using a recipe that was used on ss Great Britain.

Reading is so important!
We encourage you to listen to your child read and discuss the text at least three times a week. Sometimes it is hard to know what to ask them so below is some ideas of the type of questions that you could be asking your child whilst they are reading with you.
SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar)

Times Tables
Being able to recall the times tables is a huge skill and will have benefits across all areas of the Maths curriculum. In Year for the expectation is that children can recall their times table up to the 12x. Make sure that your child is practising their times tables regularly at home both verbally and written. Here is some links (click the image) that might help-
