Hello and Welcome to Class 3
Class 3 is made up of Year 2 and Year 3 pupils.
Our Class Teachers are:
Our new History Learning Challenge question, which we will explore during the first half term, is: ‘Who first lived in Britain?’ We will be looking at the Stone Age and how people lived in early Britain. We were lucky enough to have a visitor who knows all about the Stone Age come to school on the 14th September to work with us. We will be looking at hunting and gathering, Stone Age Clothes and art.
Following half term, our Geography learning challenge question will be; ‘Why do so many people choose to go to the Mediterranean on holiday?’ We will be looking at the geographical similarities and differences of the United Kingdom compared to a region of the Mediterranean.
During the first half term our Science learning challenge is: ‘How can Usain Bolt move so quickly?’ We will be learning about the human body including muscles and bones, and what we need to do to stay fit and healthy. Our second half term Science learning challenge is, ‘How far can you throw your shadow?’ We will be looking at light sources including the sun, reflection and mirrors.
Scientific and mathematical skills will be developed through a range of activities when exploring the topic.
We will use ICT to research information for our topic and will be learning about how to stay safe when using the internet.
The children will be learning about place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and measurement in a variety of different ways. We will be working on fluency as well as reasoning and problem solving.
During this term we will be working on our reading skills using our Read, Write Inc. programme. We will be reading Charlie and the Chocolate factory as Roald Dahl Day is in September. As part of this, we will be designing our very own Golden Tickets! We will be writing newspaper articles discussing the children in the story finding golden tickets, as well as diary entries, pretending we are Charlie Bucket.
Our PHSE topic is ‘’New Beginnings,’ and will include looking at the year ahead and thinking about what we can do to make sure our classroom is always a happy one.
In RE lessons we will begin by looking at how Hindus worship. We will be looking at Hinduism as a religion and learning how people who are Hindu express their religion.
In PE we will be doing a variety of different sports with our coach Anthony. Our P.E. lesson will be on a Monday.
