Welcome to Class 3SA
Autumn Term A
Our connector this half term is...
We will be finding out all about PIRATES! We will be looking at poems, stories, information texts and historical sources of information. We will also be thinking about tricky tongue twisters and using similes to write our own poems. In English, we will also be writing part of an adventure story by looking at the features and language of story writing.
We will look at the history of pirate flags and have a go at making our own flag. We will use information about co-ordinates and compass points to make our own treasure map.
for Design and Technology we will design and sew our own money pouch.
In Maths, we will continue to work on the four key operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This will include knowing number facts and the concept of place value. We will look at 3 digit numbers and develop mental and written strategies to solve problems. We will also find fractions of objects and identify angles greater than or less than a right angle.
In Science, we will be finding out all about light and shadows.
Homework will be given out on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
Please remember to bring your P.E kit on Monday and Tuesday. Don't forget that you should not wear any items of jewellery and only ear studs may be worn.
Your book bag should be in school every day. Try to read at home as often as possible - at least 10 minutes a day!
