Spring Term Topic Letter
10th January 2019
We have started the year with a visit from the Dogs Trust which was very interesting and has given us a good context to start our Literacy work on letter writing. We will be focusing on different purposes of letters including thank you letters and will use the book The Jolly Postman to give us some entertaining examples. Miss Clark will be covering grammar which will be put into practice in the letters and other writing across the curriculum.
In Maths Miss Nesham will focus on the four operations, starting with multiplication. A letter will go home to explain about learning of multiplication tables. Miss Clark will focus on fractions, shape and space, statistics and units of measure.
Science, Art and DT will be linked this half term with a topic investigating materials and how their properties make them suited to different uses, including clay. In the second half term we will learn about electricity in Science and will focus on colour mixing in Art.
In RE we will be learning about Hinduism and linking this to learning about different places including India, in Geography. We are having a visit from Daya, who will teach us about Hindu worship and weddings.
In the second half of term we learn about the Easter story and its meaning to Christians.
PE includes swimming for the first half term for Y3 (Y2 will have their cooking lessons in this time). We are exploring apparatus in gymnastics in the first half term and doing dance related to the India topic in the second half. Racquet skills will be developed with badminton and tennis. There will be Forest School in the second half term.
In French we will be learning to describe the weather, learning songs and listening to stories.
In Music Mrs Heard will link with RE and dance teaching, in the first half term, about using movements to accompany music and making music to tell stories. In the second half the children will start learning to play the ukulele.
In computing, in the first half term we are learning coding using the Beebots and in the second half will produce information using Publisher which will link with the electricity topic and will cover online safety through learning about safe searches and appropriate use of information found online.
