Class Three

Welcome to Class Three!

 

This half term our topic is 'Celebrating Our World!' and we will be answering the question, 

'How can famous Olympians inspire us?'

 

 

Our topic for this half term is 'Celebrating Our World!' where we will be asking the question: How can famous Olympians inspire us?

 

In English, we will create poetry, adverts, diary entries, non-chronological reports and questionnaires inspired by The Olympics and famous athletes. We will be working on a film unit about Usain Bolt, which will provide opportunities to create a biography and a research project.

For whole class reading sessions, we will be reading The Story of The Olympics by Minna Lacey and Bill’s New Frock by Anne Fine. We will also explore a range of Greek myths and legends.

 

In R.E, we will explore and reflect on our school value of Patience. The question we will be exploring is: How and why do people in Cornwall mark significant events in community life?

 

In Maths, we will be working on units following the Power Maths programme. Our units for this half term focus on Fractions, Decimals, Money and Time. 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, both Year 3 and Year 4 will be working on a topic called Animals including humans for this half term. Year 3 will focus on nutrition, skeletons and muscles and Year 4 will focus on the digestive system, teeth and food chains.

 

In Geography, we will explore the equator, the northern and southern hemisphere, the North and the South Pole, latitude and longitude, the Arctic and Antarctic Circle and the Tropics, the Prime Meridian and we will learn about local time.

 

In Art, we will explore impressionism and be inspired by Claude Monet. We will also create royal portraits and Olympic themed collages. In DT, we will be focusing on Cooking and Nutrition. We will prepare and cook some savoury dishes from chosen places in the world.

 

 

In PSHE, we will explore health and wellbeing, the importance of valuing differences and rules, rights and responsibilities. We will be working through these units on the SCARF PSHE programme.
