Class Three

Welcome to Class Three!


This half term our topic is 'Prowling Predators!' and we will be answering the question, 

'Why is it important to look after our rainforests?'



Our topic for this half term is 'Prowling Predators!' where we will be asking the question: Why is it important to look after our rainforests? 


As a class, we are enthusiastic geographers who feel passionate about looking after our planet and animals so we are extremely excited about this new topic and all of the engaging learning opportunities that it will bring! 


In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the story of The Lion King and we will be reading The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. We will use T4W techniques to learn a version of The Lion King and we will be writing descriptions, newspaper reports and play scripts based on this text. There will be opportunities for drama and performance throughout this topic, which I know Class 3 are excited about! We will be researching and writing non-chronological reports about the impact of deforestation and we will create persuasive posters to encourage others to consider the impact of deforestation. 


In R.E, we will explore and reflect on our school value of KindnessThe question we will be exploring is: What is the ‘Trinity’ and why is it important to Christians? We will also be getting ready for Easter! 


In Maths, we will be working on units following the Power Maths programme. Our units for this half term focus on Multiplication and Division, Measurement and Fractions. We will also practise and work on our times tables using Times Table Rock Stars every day. Mrs Crocker will give out times tables awards every Friday for the most consistent high scores and for the best progress in times tables! 


For Science, Year 3 will be working on a Light unit with a focus on light, reflection and shadows. In Year 4, we will be learning about Sound, how vibrations cause sound and how sound travels.


In Geography, we will be looking at rainforests around the world, rainforest layers, rainforest tribes, comparing tribal people to us and we will explore the effects of deforestation.


In Art, we will be completing a Henry Rousseau artist study. We will be creating artwork inspired by the jungle and the rainforest and we will be creating our own rainforest models using clay.


In PSHE, we will explore health and wellbeing, healthy relationships and we will be learning about how to care for our environment. We will be working on the SCARF unit: Me and My Relationships.
