Mr Parr and Mr Rudd would like to welcome back the Year 4 children and would also like to welcome the new Year 3 children, and hope that they have as much fun in Key stage 2 as they have had in Key Stage 1. This year will hopefully be a year of great experiences and be full of successes for the children.

Welcome to 2016-17 in Year 3-4!

Welcome to our class blog for this academic year.

I will try to update the page as often as possible

and put interesting things for you to read and

activities for you to do.

I hope you will encourage your child to interact with this blog page and post replies to my challenges throughout the year. I would really appreciate any support you are able to provide your child with, whether that’s helping complete the challenges or just letting them use your computer!

A big “Thank you” from Mr Parr.

We have been learning all about Spain and its wonderful culture.

This half term in year 3/4 we’ve been learning a lot about Spain and we have found its culture to be fascinating! The history and architecture of Spain is especially interesting.

For instance, did you know that The Kingdom of Spain, as it’s officially known, is the second largest country in the EU? Or that in 1603, Spanish sailor Gabriel de Castilla (1577-1620) became the first man ever to see Antarctica?

What other facts do you know about Spain? Leave your comments down below.

Year 3/4’s Spring Term!

Year 3/4 have had a great Spring term, enjoying lots of different activities. This included learning about the Ancient Greeks, visiting another primary school and a surprise visitor at our school!

Make sure to take a look at the video below and leave a comment about what you enjoyed the most.

The Ring of Fire is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes (more than 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes). The Ring of Fire is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt.

About 90% of the world’s earthquakes and 81% of the world’s largest earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. The next most seismically active region (5–6% of earthquakes and 17% of the world’s largest earthquakes) is the Alpide belt, which extends from Java to the northern Atlantic Ocean via the Himalayas and southern Europe.

All but three of the world’s 25 largest volcanic eruptions of the last 11,700 years occurred at volcanoes in the Ring of Fire.
