What we are learning this term
In Maths children are still learning the tables –the constant revision and practise at home that some children get is really helping.
Our English work this term will be more non- fiction based. The children have already started gathering information about animals they are interested in. They will be writing reports and learning how to write in paragraphs and how to use a wider range of punctuation and grammatical features. (I’m delighted that so many children remember to bring their weekly spellings back to school AND almost everybody brings in their Reading Diary every day. Thank you for helping with this! )
In Art we are looking at Stone Age art - particularly cave paintings -and using natural colours to dye fabric.
In ICT we are still using Scratch but now the focus is more on typing and general word processing skills
Our History topic this term is called Britain before the Romans
This topic covers a vast stretch of time from Stone Age to Bronze to the Iron Age. To help the year 3 children understand a little more we shall be reading Stig of the Dump and will be trying to recreate Stig’s dwelling in our classroom.
P.E. Outdoor and Indoor kit please. The children can wear tracksuit bottoms and hoodies if they think it is going to be cold.
Alongside our History work, we shall carry on learning about different faiths in the UK – particularly Sihkism.
Our Science topics this term are to do with materials and then plants and growing things.
