Class 3

Mr Care

Curriculum Statement Class 3

Our topic for this half term is the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will base most of our English teaching, reading comprehension and drama activities around the fabulous book Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. We will be learning to write setting descriptions, questions and answers, sense poetry and non-chronological reports.

In maths, we will be beginning with number sense, place value and calculation. This will involve adding/subtracting 10s, 100s and 1000s, placing numbers on blank number lines and partitioning numbers. We will then move on to strategies for addition and subtraction, focusing on number lines to begin with.

Our humanities work will include work on timelines, sources of evidence and researching a topic using the internet. In art, we will be looking at the Perch Merle cave paintings, Stonehenge and Stone Age tools (amongst other things). Mrs Cuthill will teach science this year. PE will be gymnastics on Mondays taught by Mr Care, and football on Fridays taught by Mr Hall-Galley. The children will learning basic programming and paint skills in ICT. They will also have the opportunity to take part in Forest Schools with Mrs Stanbury on Thursdays.

We are excited to welcome you back!
