Year 3/4

Our topic this half term is 'Magic'. Talking about a topic in advance, looking at pictures and using technical key words is a really good way to support your child in their learning, particularly for those children who may have English as an additional language or those who need extra help with their learning. Below are some ideas that you could use to help your child return to school confidently and ready to learn. Thank you for your support. 

The children will start the topic with our Immersion Day which will focus on Harry Potter themed activities which we can guarantee will be lots of fun. They will also work together to create a class display by writing potion instructions and designing magic wands. We will be getting magical by mixing potions using lots of mathematical language as well. It will be an exciting, magical day. 

You could take a look at the website which is a fantastic resource for children to get a head start in their learning. It has a fantastic magicians dictionary which outlines words and phrases used by magicians with an explanation of their meanings. There are numerous tutorial videos with written instructions on how to perform magic tricks. Also, take a look at the history of magic tab where you can find out about famous magicians throughout the ages.
