Science - Light and Shadow

For the first half of the Autumn term we will be looking at light and shadow.

We will be exploring questions such as:

Can we see things without light?

Are all materials reflective?

How do I see myself in a mirror?

Is it dangerous to look at the sun?

What is a shadow and how do they change?


Throughout Autumn term the children will heavily be focussing on using an efficient written method to add and subtract 3 digit numbers. Most children will progress to renaming numbers through the coloumn addition and column subtraction.


Please encourage the children to access the TT Rockstars websure as much as possible. They will be primarily focusing on their 3, 4 and 8 times tables and related division facts. It is imperative that they get a good understanding of mental multiplication to help them in their maths journey at Dallam Primary.


Autumn Project

Our project question is...

What makes a great society?


As part of our project this term we will be focussing on History skills. We will be using the Ancient Egyptians to investigate our question and develop our critical thinking skills, learning as independently as we can. Our trip to Liverpool World Musuem will excite and engage us with rich information to begin our project.


We have thought about some questions we would like to be answered...

Would a society need a king or queen?

Do societies need laws?

How do we know who is the most important in a society?

Does everyone in a great society need to follow a religion?

Should we all have the same houses in a great society?


Each Monday your child will be bringing home some new spellings that they need to practice in school as well as at home. Some children will focus on patterns and some weeks there will be a spelling from the year 3/4 spelling list as set out in the National Curriculum.

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.
