Class Three

Welcome to Class Three!

 

This half term our topic is 'The Greatest Show!' and we will be answering the question, 

'Why is it important to value everyone's differences?'

 

 

Our topic for this half term is 'The Greatest Show!' where we will be asking the question: Why is it important to value everyone's differences? 

 

As a class, we are enthusiastic actors who feel passionate about drama and performance 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 Greatest Showman. We will be creating persuasive posters and advertisements, character and setting descriptions and comparisons, newspaper reports, recounts, scripts and diary entries. We will have opportunities to act out and perform scenes from the show and we will be creating our own video adverts.


For whole class reading sessions, we will be reading The Witches by Roald Dahl. We will also be reading Harper and the Circus of Dreams by Gerrie Burnell and Leon and the Place Between by Grahame Baker-Smith as a class. 

 

In R.E, we will explore and reflect on our school value of Forgiveness. The question we will be exploring is: For Christians, what was the impact of Pentecost?

 

In Maths, we will be working on units following the Power Maths programme. Our units for this half term focus on Measurement, Fractions and Decimals. 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 be studying the UK. We will be exploring these questions:

What are the main cities of the UK?
What are the UK counties and districts?
What is special about the UK?

We will then complete a comparison study.

 

In Art, we will be focusing on self portraits, family portraits and observational drawings. In DT, we will design, make and evaluate a structure that an acrobat could use in the circus.

 

In PSHE, we will explore health, wellbeing, feelings, and emotions. We will be working through these units on the SCARF programme.

 

Check out this page for photos below, showing all of the wonderful things we have been doing in our learning at school and at home!

 

At home, you can make sure you are working towards your next Reading Karate Band and you can access Sum Dog, Purple Mash, Charanga, Spelling Shed and Times Table Rock Stars using the logins that are on the children's reading records. Remember to practise your spellings that are sent home at the beginning of each half term ready for a weekly spelling test. Our spelling test is every Friday. 

 

Remember that you can also be completing the exciting challenges for the '50 things to do before leaving Primary school'.
