Through our Term 3 Topic learning Scavengers and Settlers, we will be exploring the main characteristics of people and cultures that existed during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will investigate the similarities and differences between societies that existed during these periods using a variety of sources.
As children learn about the fossilisation process, they will make clay fossils taking inspiration from their History learning. In Computing, children will code their own multi-player game, test it and then improve it in response to player feedback.
In English, children will develop and apply their knowledge of vocabulary, conjunctions, openers and punctuation as they write their own stories based on Ug, The Boy Genius of the Stone Age by Raymond Briggs. They will also have a chance to explore Julia Donaldson’s performance poetry.
In Maths, we will continue to secure children’s understanding of place value, which will support their application of formal written methods of calculation for addition and subtraction. Children will also develop their rapid recall of times tables.
In Term 3, children will receive specialist PE tuition so their PE kits are required in school at all times please. Homework books will be sent home every Friday and children are expected to bring in one piece of completed homework each week. Please continue to help your child learn their weekly spellings and listen to them read at least three times a week.
Thank you for your continued support.
