Welcome to Class Three!
This half term our topic is 'The Amazing Ancient Greeks!' and we will be answering the question,
"What was it like to live in Ancient Greece?"
Here is a link to some amazing books that link to this topic:
We will be continuing Summer Term learning from home, hoping to be back at school as soon as we can!
In English, we will be basing our learning this term on Greek myths and legends. We will be writing stories, poetry and a biography.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of 'Patience'.
In Maths, we will continue to work on our times tables using Times Tables Rockstars and Sumdog. We will also continue to develop our understanding of shape, measurement, money and fractions.
In Science, we will be investigating animals including humans. We will describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans, identify the different types of teeth in humans and their simple functions and construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey. Here is a link for animal clips on BBC bitesize which is a great resource for research and learning new facts: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zn22pv4
In Geography, we will observe, measure and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods, including sketch maps, plans and graphs and digital technologies.
In History, we will complete a study of Greek life and achievements and explore their influences on the western world.
In Art, we will be investigating Greek pottery and completing our own designs and versions out of materials at home. In DT, we will be looking at cooking and nutrition. We could even create some exciting healthy recipes at home!

At home, you have your home learning packs and access to Sum Dog, Spelling Shed, SPAG.com and Times Table Rockstars which you can continue to work on. Mrs Crocker has also shared logins for many other online learning resources on Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Both Class Dojo and Google Classroom will be updated daily with learning projects, topic based activities, creative challenges and updates from Mrs Crocker. Keep working hard to carry on earning your Dojo points! You are all doing fantastically well with your home learning so far!
Key children will be in Mrs Joseph's class at school for the time being where they will be working on English, Maths, Forest School and PSHE activities. If they wish to complete any of the Ancient Greece topic learning online, they will still have access to everything available to the rest of Class 3.
