English

This term, our writing and reading will be inspired by two books - Tom Gates and The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe. We will be reading both of these books in groups, as a class and through role play. 

We will develop our literacy skills by writing in many different styles and formats including persuasive letters, news reports, stories, poems, play scripts and non-chronological reports.

We will work on our spelling, grammar and punctuation daily and also improve our reading comprehension through guided reading sessions.

As ever, we advise parents to do as much reading with children at home as possible. It is also important to try and ask your children questions about their books. 

Spelling

Here are our spellings, the Term 3A folder includes the weekly spellings they recieve every week. Please help your child to practice these every week. 

Mathematics

In our mathematics lessons this term we will be improving our understanding of :

  • Place value(including numbers with two decimal places)
  • Powers of 10,100 and 1000
  • Written methods of calculation
  • Fractions
  • Mental calculation strategies
  • Statistics
  • Converting units of measure and time

History


Our History topic this term is 'The Romans.' We will learn about how and why the Romans came to Britain. We will discover why they had the most organised and feared army in the Ancient world. We will investigate The Celts, the people who lived in Britannia when the Romans invaded. The Roman way of life will also be studied in detail: What they ate, how they kept clean and how they enjoyed themselves.

The Roman topic is also a perfect opportunity for cross-curicular learning. We will create our own Roman artwork including mosaics and clay busts. Work on Roman numerals will compliment our Maths work and we will even learn some Latin and how it links to our spelling and grammar in English today.

 

Religious Education

In the first half term of the spring we will learn about Jesus the Teacher. In this topic, we will discover how Jesus uses parables to beautifully illustrate to  us how to act and what God the Father is really like. We will learn how Jesus teaches us how to pray and how he wants to draw us into closer friendship with him.

In the second spring half term we will begin our First Holy Communion preparation. We will be working through the Diocese of Leeds' brand new resource and learn together about the beauty and importance of the Holy Sacrament.
