Learning Activities to Prepare for Year 4
 
See-Saw
 
Learning activities can now be found on our Remote Learning Platform - See-Saw. All children should have a code to access See-Saw, which they will be able to use to complete and upload activities to. 
 
There are a set of four really helpful videos to watch - they will show you how to access learning activities, how to save them and send them to your teacher, and how your teacher will respond to you. Thank-you to Mr Folly for putting these together.

Its a very special Sharing Assembly this week - don't miss it! We had to put it into two parts - there was so much we wanted to say!
Below is the one for Years 3 and 4.
Year 3 Learning Activities for Week Beginning 20th July
 
The learning activities for the week are now on See-Saw. Please make sure you log-in and complete them there.
 
In case anyone is having any difficulties with See-Saw, a copy of the learning activities for this week will be placed below, along with some advice for everyone about managing your children's learning at home. 
 
The top page will detail all the learning activities that you should find below. Some activities need you to log in to Times Tables Rock Stars, Mathletics or Spellodrome. If you have any difficulty with any of these, please let the office know, and we will email you the log-in details over. They should be at the back of your child's green log book.
 
We would love to hear about your learning too - don't be afraid to email in pictures, or stories of your learning. To help us share this with your child's class teacher, don't forget to put their class name on the email.

We would like to welcome you and the children to Priory Junior School. We hope the children enjoy the learning and experiences that they will take part in over this year.

Autumn:

We begin our learning journey with our Stone Age topic. In English, pupils will study the Stone Age Boy text and write their own adventure texts. We have an exciting trip planned to Flag Fen to experience Stone Age life for ourselves! In Maths, we will look at number value and ways that we can add and subtract mentally and using a written method. Following half term, we move to the Mediterranean looking at the text ‘Where the Forest Meets the Sea’. We learn what it is like to live in the Mediterranean and write some fantastic setting descriptions.

Spring:

In Spring, the children will learn about the Ancient Greeks and how they have influenced our modern society. The children will learn mythical stories and legends with fantastical creatures. We will compare the modern Olympics with the Ancient Games, concluding with a Greek Day and  an Olympics of our own.

Summer:

Finally, the children will focus on local history. They will have the opportunity to learn about what St Neots was like in the past and how the Rowley family have influenced the town around them. Following this, the children will have the chance to explore the deepest depths of the earth and create volcanic eruptions in the topic Escape From Pompeii. Some people say that there may be a volcano under our feet that needs investigating!
