Class 3

In RE this term, we will be discussing what Christians believe about God and Creation.  We will also be discussing what Christians do because they believe God is Creator. Furthermore, we will be asking questions and suggesting answers about what might be important in the Creation story for Christians and for non-Christians living today.

In English, we will be studying a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. We will be covering stories, instructions texts and explanation texts.

In Maths, we will be revising and extending our knowledge of place value and then working on our written methods for all four operations, making sure we can apply them in a range of problems.

This term, we will be historians learning all about The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age. We will be delving into their lives: finding out what they ate; about the weapons they used; how and where they lived and Stonehenge, as well as studying and creating cave art.  Using inspiration from the topic, we will also be developing our printing skills.

In Science, we will firstly be learning about ‘Light and Seeing’. This will involve recognising that we need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light. We will be exploring reflection and that the sun can be dangerous. We will also be learning about how shadows are formed. Later on in the term, we will be learning about how sounds are made, associating them with something vibrating. We will also be recognising that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear.

In French, we will be recapping our general ‘getting to know you’ and ‘all about me’ vocabulary: greetings, numbers, colours and talking about ourselves.
