Class 3 Topics Autumn 207

 CLASS 3  –  DENVER V. C. PRIMARY SCHOOL  –  AUTUMN TERM 2017

 
 
Dear Parent/Carer,
 
Welcome to the new school year, we will be doing lots of exciting things this year and here is a flavour of what we will be working on this term.
 
Literacy: We are looking at Adventure Stories and poetry this term.
 
Numeracy: In Numeracy we will begin by working on counting in multiples and the importance of place value.
 
Science: We will be investigating light and looking at forces and magnets.
 
Design and Technology: We will be investigating structure and textiles. We will be designing, creating and evaluating our own containers.
 
Computing: This term in our lessons we will be looking at Computer Networks and Programming.
 
History: We will begin to look at changes in Britain during pre-historic times.
 
Geography: We will look at Europe and the countries within it.
 
Art and Design: We will look at the portrayal of relationships in art and in our own work.
 
Music: We will use music and instruments to explore the pentatonic scales.
 
PE: This term we will be playing striking and fielding games. Children should bring in their PE kits each Monday and take them home on the Friday.
 
RE: This term we will be looking at Christianity and visiting Ely Cathedral.
 
PHSE/Citizenship: We will be looking at rules and how they keep everyone safe.
 
French: We will be exploring French, working on numbers, colours and the alphabet.
 
Homework: Maths homework is set on Monday to be returned on Wednesday.  English homework is set on Wednesday to be returned on Friday. Spellings will be set on Friday to be tested the following Friday. Some children find it extremely beneficial to read these with their parents/carers and your support in this is very welcome. Additionally if your child is a developing reader it is important that they get as much support at home as possible through reading and sharing books.
 
If you have any queries about your child please feel free to contact me. Sometimes conversations at the beginning of the day are not easy as lessons need to be started promptly so after school meetings would be preferable.
 
I look forward to the exciting year ahead with Class 3.
 
Mr Bonham
