Class 3



Mrs Hedges teaches Class 3 with Mr Smee as our TA.  We are a class for Year 3 and Year 4 children.

Autumn term i

We are learning about lots of different topics:
  • English this half term includes a mixture of texts and inspirations.  We will learn about many different aspects of fiction and non-fiction.  This includes reading and writing based shorter stories based on fables, information texts and image poems.
  • Our topic this half term is called 'Location, Location, Location' and is all about the geography of the UK.  This will entail learning about the countries and cities, rivers and sea, the counties, hills and mountains, and how the UK has changed over time.
  • This half term in art/DT we are learning about sunsets and concentrating on our use of colour.
  • Our science work is about teeth and healthy eating.  We will learn about the different teeth and their functions and experimenting with what may or may not damage our teeth.
  • In music we will be singing and playing music in a unit titled 'Mamma Mia'.  Yes, that does mean Abba!
  • We are learning French this year - Bonjour!  Across the year we are gaining a solid grounding in the basics, with Year 3 learning the language for the first time.  Year 4 will refresh the vocabulary learnt last year whilst learning the next steps also.
  • In Computing, Key Stage 2 will explore different programming platforms: Lightbot (http://lightbot.com/flash.html), Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/), Kodu (http://www.kodugamelab.com/) and Blockly (https://blockly-games.appspot.com/).  Over the year we also extend our learning about Microsoft Office, computer safety and any other coding that we discover along the way!
