Class 3

Mr Caston

In Class 3 this half term we will be delving into the world of the Ancient Egyptians for our focus in History including a super trip to Norwich Castle on Thursday 12th January!

In English we will be focussing on learning how to write a non-chronological report before moving on to write a story idea based on a real setting.

In our reading sessions we start off with ‘The Day the Crayons Came Home’ before moving on to ‘Amazing Grace’ which should initiate some super discussion around our school value of individuality.

Maths will see us develop our multiplication and division knowledge further for a few weeks to include learning different strategies to solve problems and reasoning. It’s still vital for your child to learn their times tables at home so please refer to my handout issued last term if you need some help with this. Length and Perimeter will then be our focus towards the end of the half term.

In Computing we will be exploring ‘Kodu’ to learn how to create a 3D place and programme characters just like video game designers!

In Art & Design we will link our work to our Egyptians topic and create our own papyrus paper and ancient scrolls.

Our PE focus will be on developing cognitive skills so we can identify our own areas for improvement, explain what we are doing well and work on ordering instructions, movements and skills.

Learning about pentatonic melodies in music will inspire us to compose our own pieces using layered melodies.

It’s set to be an exciting and busy start to 2023 in Class 3 
