Welcome to Class 3’s page!
In Literacy this term we are focusing on traditional tales.
We are reading the story of the Three Little Pigs. We will act out the story and, as a class, create actions to help us to remember the story. We will then innovate the story by changing the wolf character and the materials from which the houses are made.
In Geography, we have been exploring maps of the classroom, school and the local area.
We have also started to learn about the wider world, including the countries and capitals of the United Kingdom as well as the seas which surround us.
We have investigated London and discussed how this differs from Crowle, our local area.
In History, we are learning about the Gunpowder Plot, the events which lead up to this and how we remember it today.
This links to our Art topic, all about fireworks.
We will also be exploring the topic of telephones and how these have changed and developed over the recent years.
In RE, our first topic was families. We have explored who is in our families and how we show love and care for one another.
Our next topic was ‘Belonging’. We learned about the different groups to which each of us belong and how we are welcomed into these. For example, we are welcomed into the church family when we are baptised.
Our final topic for Advent term is ‘Waiting’. We are exploring how Advent is a time for waiting. We remember that Mary had to wait for the birth of Jesus and now we use the Advent wreath to help us to prepare for Christmas.
This term in Science we are exploring living things.
We are learning about animals, plants and what these need to live. This was supported by our exciting trip to Rand Farm Park.
We are investigating what happens when plants do not get everything they need to grow, by not giving one plant water and keeping another in the dark.
We are also exploring how we can be healthy and why it is important that we stay healthy.
