Class 3

Mr Caston

Our topic in Class 3 for this half term is the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will base a large amount of our English work around the fabulous book Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. This will also be a key text for our studying of reading before we move on to read the classic ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl. These lessons will work to teach the children all aspects of reading from learning new words, predicting, and making links between books they read.

In Maths our focus for the start of the year will be on Place Value to include learning how to partition and represent numbers in different ways using a variety of resources and strategies to support us. Following this we move on to work on Addition and Subtraction to include learning how to use Roman Numerals and round numbers.

In History we will be exploring the changes from The Stone Age to The Iron Age and learning key skills such as how to use timelines, know the difference between primary and secondary sources of information and know what a historical question is and how to write our own.

In Computing we will be exploring Scratch and learn how to design, write, and debug programs that accomplish specific goals. Our PE work will see us focus in on developing our personal skills as well as our co-ordination and balance.

I’m really looking forward to my first half term teaching Class 3 and I know we’re going to learn lots and enjoy ourselves whilst doing so.
