Snaith Primary School

Medium Term Plans

Take a look at what we are learning about in Years 3 and 4 this year:

Can You Stig It?

During the Autumn term we will be learning about the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  We will also be enjoying our whole class text 'Stig of the Dump' as well as learning about rocks and classifying living things in Science.  There will be lots of rich reading and writing opportunities throughout our topic to inspire the children and to help them to understand this fascinating period of history in greater depth. This term we are focusing on the pen and ink art of Edward Ardizzone and the clapping rhythms of Steve Reich in music.

That's Showbiz Dahl-ling!

Lights, camera, action! This topic centres around exploring the use of digital media to create mini films inspired by the work of our favourite author, Roald Dahl.  In Science, we will investigate sound and light whilst in art, we will focus on the work of Quentin Blake. In music, we will develop our knowledge and understanding of film scores and use this to create our own compositions to accompany our short films.

Faster, Higher, Stronger

Our Summer Term topic focuses on Ancient Greek civilisation and its legacy. Children will learn about key developments of the period and will investigate the lasting impact that the Greeks have had on our society today, including looking at the Olympics.  In art, we will focus on pottery and will be inspired by the colourful work of Clarice Cliff. This term, children will also enjoy a mini-topic on weather and climate change, using map-reading skills to help identify different places with different types of climate  around the UK and the wider world. Children will also use fieldwork skills to investigate patterns in our own local weather over time.
