Welcome to Class Three!
This half term our topic is 'Vicious Vikings!' and we will be answering the question,
"Where did the Vikings come from?"
Class Three were very excited when we discussed our next topic which is all about Vikings! They reminded me that we will of course have to make time for Christmas festivities to end the half term in December! We will be sewing Christmas decorations for Design Technology to finish off our exciting half term!
In English, through the 'Talk for Writing' approach, we will be immersing ourselves in the story of ‘How to Train Your Dragon'. We will learn and retell the story, write character and setting descriptions, instructions, diary entries, letters, advertisements, poetry and comparisons before innovating and inventing our own stories. We will also be writing non-chronological reports about the Norman Conquest. In our class reading sessions we will be reading the book ‘Beowulf’.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of 'TRUST'. We will also ask ‘Why is the Torah so important to the Jews?’ and explore the Judaism unit of our RE curriculum.
In Science, we will be investigating forces, magnets and electricity. We will be building circuits and learning about electric safety.
In Geography, we will be developing our geographical skills and field work. We will be using maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries.
In History, we will be investigating the ‘Norman Conquest’. We will be exploring the Viking and Anglo Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor.
