Welcome to 3 SO 's class page!
This term, Autumn B, our Connector is…..
'Tiaras, Turrets and Tournaments!
We will be reading traditional fairy tales, such a Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood. We will also be looking and those with a twist.
Children will have an opportunity to write a traditional fairy tale and will be considering the viewpoints of different characters.
We will also write an alternative ending to some of the fairy tales studied.
In Music we will be singing from memory with accurate pitch and creating accompaniments for tunes.
We will be looking at healthy eating and linking it to our Science topic of Animals Including Humans.
The children will produce an information leaflet about the benefits of a healthy plate of party food in time for our Christmas celebrations!
Our focus this year will be on increasing the children’s fluency with whole numbers and the four key operations, (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) including number facts and the concept of place value. By the end of year 3 it is expected that the children will be able to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
This half term we will revisit work on place value of 3-digit numbers and additions and subtractions(developing mental strategies and written methods). We will also continue to develop children’s fluency,reasoning and problem solving skills using these operations.
Science will be taught as part of our connected curriculum and will focus on Animals including Humans. The children will identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food; they get nutrition from what they eat.
They will also find out that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support , protection and movement.
In Computing we will be using multimedia and Windows Movie Maker to create our own films.
The children will be learning about film making techniques including visual and sound effects.
They might even do some animation!
BARCLAYS have built an online playground which is a safe environment where children can try out fun activities based on simple coding principles. Why not take a look with your child at: http://www.barclays.co.uk/DigitalEagles/BarclaysCodePlayground/P1242686640999
We will continue to study Sikhism, including the festival of Diwali and the teachings of Guru Nanak.
