English

This term, our writing and reading will be inspired by two books - The Iron Man and Krindlekrax. 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 topics this term are 'The Ancient Greek' and  'The Romans.'

In our Ancient Greek topic we will learn about the gods and myths. We will also learn about some of the Greek cities such as Athens and Sparta. We will also learn about the brilliant leader, Alexander the Great!

Later in the term, 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. In this topic, we will discover the differences between The Old and The New Testaments, we will earn some stories anout the prophets and develop our Bible referencing skills.

In the second half term we will study the Trust in God topic. This will give us chance to consider how some of the great people of the past put their trust in God, even in difficult situations!
