Welcome to Class 3! Our teacher is Mr Cartridge and our teaching assistant is Mrs Ashworth. Please have a look at our termly newsletter, this can be found at the bottom of this page.
We are looking forward to the year ahead and all of the interesting topics we will be covering! During the first half term, our theme is ‘There’s no place like home’. We will be looking at maps of the UK to identify some of the different cities and we will look at maps of Edenfield to discover the features of our village. We will be thinking about what Edenfield used to be like in the past and we will be comparing it to the present day. We are also thinking about our local area in our computing topic about images and videos. In our computing lesson, we will be taking photographs of the different parts of our school before uploading them on to the computer. We will be using these pictures to create our own animation over the next few weeks.
In science, we are learning about light and shadows. We will be thinking about different light sources and how light travels from these. We will also investigate different materials to understand if light can travel through any of them and how shadows are formed.
n English, we are learning all about folk tales during the first few weeks of the half term. We will be reading lots of different folk tales such as ‘The tin forest’ and ‘The old lady who lived in a vinegar bottle’. We will be using the themes from the different stories to generate ideas for our own folk tales. We are looking forward to writing them and creating some magical settings! Our next topic in English will be all about biographies and we are looking forward to learning about lots of new and interesting people.
Our Maths topics over the first few weeks revolves around place value. We will be learning about how to partition numbers and thinking about the value of each digit. We will use this knowledge to help develop our mental calculation skills and we will add and subtract using numbers with up to three digits. We will then be moving on to our next topic of shape, in which we will be thinking about the different properties of shapes and how we can describe these.
In RE, we are learning all about Harvest during the first half term. We will be thinking about why Harvest is important to us and what happens during our services in Church. We will also be investigating how other countries celebrate Harvest and what this time of year means to them.
We are learning French for the first time this year and we are really excited about learning a new language! We will be learning the numbers up to ten and how to introduce ourselves. We will then start to learn the different colours in French.
Each Friday afternoon we will be learning the guitar in our Music lesson with Mr Webb.
