Welcome to 3 SO 's class page!
This term, Spring 1, our Connector is…..
'Sticks and Stones'
We will be exploring the Stone Age and understanding the legacy left behind. We will be learning about the cave art our ancestors left for us and creating our own using different media– such as chalks, charcoal and paint that we will make using berries.
Work will be exhibited in our classroom art gallery, children will develop the importance of celebrating success in learning.
In English, children will learn how to write dialogue using inverted commas. We will also focus on the features of persuasive writing, incorporating our knowledge of prehistoric life.
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 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables.
This half term we will extend our knowledge of place value. Our knowledge of times tables will be applied when solving multiplication and division problems. We will be developing our knowledge and understanding of money. The children will also be collecting data and using this information to support their learning of statistics.
Science will be taught as part of our connected curriculum and will focus on rocks and soils (including fossils).
Children will take part in a number of practical activities which will involve observing, comparing and sorting.
This half term children will utilise the internet as a research tool.
We will look at e-safety and online communications. Pupils will learn how to act in an appropriate manner when using the internet.
We will continue to study Sikhism, considering the qualities of leadership and the relevance of religious stories.
