Class 3

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

Summer term 

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 shape poems, instruction writing and science fiction.
  • Our topic this half term is called 'Cosmic Capers' and is all about the sun and moon.  This will entail learning about the more scientific side of the sun and the moon, alongside learning about the history of the space race and 1969 moon landing.
  • This half term in art/DT we are learning about the sun, sunsets and space.  We will ultimately create a piece of art inspired by Vincent van Gogh.
  • Our science work is within our overall topic of 'Cosmic Capers'.
  • In music we will be learning to sing and compose in a unit called 'Lean On Me.'  This is music in the soul genre, starting with Bill Withers' original version of 'Lean On Me'.
  • In RE, we will ask 'How does the Hindu 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 (, Scratch (, Kodu ( and Blockly (  Over the year we also extend our learning about Microsoft Office, computer safety and any other coding that we discover along the way!
