Mrs Simon

Year 3

We are fast approaching the festive season and this term we will be preparing to lead the Christmas worship n church.  We will also be going on a Christmas hunt in our local area.

Before all of this, we will be taking part in healthy school week and Freddie Fit will be joining us once again for a keep fit session on the playground.  We will be ready on Monday morning. 

Our topic this term is ‘Ancient Explorers’.  We will be looking at what it was like to live during ancient times.  This will involve looking at why rivers were important for civilizations, what daily life was like in the Indus Valley or along the Nile. We are also looking at 'plants' in Science and the life cycle of plants and linking it to our main topic, talking about how the ancient explorers used plants.  In Healthy Schools week we will also be cooking some food from this area of the world...yum! yum!

We will also be having a visitor this half term to tell us all about life in Anient Egyptian times.  We will make some Egyptian jewellery and dress up as Pharoahs.

We will be looking at 'printing' and producing some art pieces using different materials for our printing and experimenting with  the patterns made.

In English we are going to be writing stories with familiar settings, looking at a well known poems and performing poetry and producing an explanantion text about rivers.

We are going to be introducing coding and algorithms in our Computing lesssons and linking it to a text we are reading in our topic lessons.  We may have some future computer programmers in our midst!

We have a busy term ahead!
