Teaching Assistants: Mrs Amitrano and Mrs Reynolds


Welcome to Squirrel Class!


Term 4 2024


Hi Squirrels!


Welcome to our class page. Here you will find information about what we are doing on certain days and what we are learning about this term.


This term our big question is:


What is unique about Australia?



To answer this question, we will be geographers and use maps and atlases to locate Australia and surrounding countries. We will discover that Australia is one of the largest countries on Earth and that it is located in the Southern Hemisphere. The children will explore Australia’s diversity and identify its huge range of indigenous species of plants and animals. We will learn about the Aboriginal people who have lived in Australia for over 60,000 years. (Avoid using the term indigenous- see resource at end of pack).


In Maths, we will be looking at fractions and in number, decimals and percentages. In History, we will be studying the Transatlantic Slave Trade. In Art we will studying art from China. Through P.S.H.E. we will explore the theme of ‘Working Together’; in R.E. we will learn about the religion of Christianity and the theme of ‘Salvation’. Our D.T. project will be looking at the Cooking and Nutrition, and as part of their work with food, the children will be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. In Computing we will be focusing on digital lifestyles. Our P.E. lessons will be focusing on netball skills and different styles in dance.
