Class 3






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

Spring term ii

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 a week of challenges set courtesy of different authors and illustrators for World Book Day, and exploring adventure stories using 'pyramid mapping'.
  • Our topic this half term is called 'Home and Away' and is all about South America and how it compares to Britain.
  • This half term in art/DT we are learning how to sew using binca and wool.
  • Our science work is all about the habitat of the Amazon Rainforest.
  • In music we will be continuing to learn to play the ukulele as a whole class, taught by a specialist teacher from the Norfolk Music Hub.
  • In RE, we continue to ask 'How does the Muslim community worship?'.
  • 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!
Our curriculum overviews (recent) past and present are linked below, including a copy of our homework for each half term.
