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 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 on list poems and kennings, recount writing, and fairy tales and playscripts.
  • Our topic this half term is called 'Wonderful World' and is all about mountains.  This will entail learning about the mountains and mountain ranges of the world, how mountains are formed, and what life is like in the mountains.
  • This half term in art/DT we are learning about pointillism and famous artists known for their work in this area, such as Paul Signac and Georges Seurat.  We will ultimately create a piece of art with a mountain focus.
  • Our science work is about rocks.  We will learn about different types of rocks and experiment with properties such as density.
  • In music we will be learning to sing and rap in a unit called 'Stop!'.  We will learn more about rhythm and experiment with writing our own verses.
  • In RE, we will complete our big question of 'What kind of world did Jesus want?'
  • 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!
