This half term our topic is ‘Wonderful Woodland’
We are looking forward to our first half term in Class Three and all the changes and challenges that it will bring. Our first term started with an exciting hook! We spent a day in the woodland area building dens for a mysterious creature! We are excited for more engaging learning opportunities throughout this year!
In Literacy, based on the 'Talk for Writing' approach, we will be immersing ourselves in the story of Elf Road which is a text written by Pie Corbett. We will learn the story, as well as writing character and setting descriptions, recounts, mini scene descriptions, persuasive letters, instructions and comparisons before innovating and inventing our own stories. We will also be starting Reciprocal Reading, studying the book The Firework Maker’s Daughter.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of Friendship. We will also reflect on what it means if God is holy and loving, as well as exploring the Apostles' Creed.
In Science we will be investigating living things, especially plants and natural habitats. We will be attempting to grow our own class plants!
In Geography, we will be looking at where would be the best place to build a city. We will be doing some fieldwork that will involve exploring the human and physical geography of our local area using a range of methods. This will include: sketching maps, plans and graphs and digital technologies.
In History, we will be learning all about the monarchs and changes to the royal family. We will be learning about the royal family as it is now and many of the monarchs from the past.
