Welcome to Class 3 smiley

We can't believe it is the Summer Term already,  This year is going so quickly.  Welcome back and we trust you had a lovely Easter.

It is lovely to welcome Mrs Marsh back.  We have all missed her dearly.  This half term we are going to be finishing off our work on Leon and the Place Between in Literacy and moving onto a book called The Promise.  To finish our Leon topic we are going to be writing our own voyage and return stories.  The Promise is a very different story set in a quite a dark and unhappy setting that changes to positive throughout the story.  Some of the work in Literacy will link with our science topic of Living Things.  Here we are going to be finding out about lifecycles of plants and animals, parts of a plant and how we can classify living things.

In P,E we are very lucky to have Nicky Goodrich coming along to run some Zumba sessions with the children which will be fantastic.  We will also be learning lots of cricket skills.  Our French topic is Le Carnaval des Animaux and in Design Technology we are designing and creating our own kites.

Our maths work will focus on decimals, money and division. We will be reviewing all the times tables. In R.E we will be learning about Sikhism and linking it to Christianity. British values will also be covered. Throughout the weeks we will be using laptops to review our key skills and we will be using Espresso. In Geography, we will work on locating the worlds countries and using atlases and maps. We will identify the significance of longitude, latitude and the Equator. Our work on Europe and Great Britain links into our history topic, which is the Vikings.
