English

This term, our writing and reading will be inspired by two books – The Iron Man, by famous West Yorkshire author Ted Hughes, and Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley. 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 year we will learn about The Bible. We will learn how this is God's Holy Word and how it is a living text which we can use to guide our lives. We shall learn how the Bible is structured and how to quickly reference any verse. We shall learn about many of the stories from The Bible and from which books they belong. This is sure to be an exciting journey for us as we discover the Bible's power and how it can be part of our prayer lives in school and at home.
